Cone Beam and 3d X-Rays.
You make the best decisions when you have the best information. This is what Cone Beam allows us to do. Most dental imaging is in 2 dimensions, and for simple dental procedures that is adequate. However, more complicated procedures such as root canals and dental implants require better information. With implants, we can virtually plan and place the dental implant and know we are far away from important nerves (as shown below).
This technology also shows us to find hidden nerve canals inside teeth. This can make our root canals faster and more predictable. Cone beam technology is another tool we use to deliver better, safer and more predictable care.
