Conebeam Imaging

Our office is equipped with the latest generation Soredex Cranex 3D CBCT. Dr. Tirrell will utilize a CBCT when deemed appropriate. CBCT imaging is a relatively new technology in the field of dentistry. This imaging creates a 3-D view of teeth that can be examined from all surfaces. This is a great advantage over traditional 2-D dental x rays. This technology utilizes minimal radiation and is equivalent to only a few regular dental x-rays. The images are utilized in special cases where additional information about your tooth is needed. CBCT images in these instances are critical at enhancing diagnosis, treatment planning, and will aid in implementation of therapy. In many instances, it can help avoid unnecessary treatment and can aid in determining why a tooth is not responding to initial treatment.
