Cone Beam, CT Scan
CT Scans or Cone Beam Imaging systems (CBCT) generate a 3D, high-definition x-ray within seconds. The images are quite remarkable and help with diagnosing and treating dental problems. CBCT technology can also be used to help diagnose periodontal and periapical disease, as well as some bone pathology. The scans help assess your root's anatomy as there are no two roots that are the same. Should you need this service, you can rest assure that Dr. Kell will and a radiographic pathologist will review the scan. The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority.
The Cone Beam system produces a very low dose of
radiation, thus reducing unnecessary exposure. These scans allow us to quickly
assess your dental needs and get you back out enjoying your life in less time
than you might expect from traditional imaging equipment.
