Let Us Help Make Your Dream Smile a Reality!
Come Beam Digital X-Rays provide Dr. Bates with a wealth of data we can use to quickly and effectively evaluate your teeth, gums, and even the nerves in your mouth. This information is invaluable in helping us diagnose and treat any dental issues you may have before they have a chance to become more significant issues.
What Are Cone Beam Digital X-Rays, and What Do They Do?
A cone beam digital X-ray system is a type of 3D X-ray machine. It takes pictures of your teeth, gums, and mouth from multiple angles. Multiple angles give us a more complete picture of your dental health than traditional 2D X-rays.
How Does the Cone Beam Digital X-Ray Work?
The cone beam digital X-ray system uses a small, narrow beam of X-rays. This beam is cone-shaped, hence the name. The X-rays are emitted from a rotating arm and pass through your teeth, gums, and jawbone. They then hit a detector on the other side, which creates a 3D image of your mouth.
Advantages of Using a Cone Beam Digital X-Ray Over Traditional X-Rays
Using a cone beam digital X-ray over traditional 2D X-rays has several advantages. First, they give us a much more complete picture of your mouth. We can use them to view different levels of your internal mouth structure, focusing on your bone structure, the nerves within your mouth, and everything in between.
Second, they allow us to take X-rays from multiple angles, which gives us a better idea of any problems that may be present. Multiple angles mean we can use the digital 3D model to pan, rotate, and view your image from any angle.
Third, they allow us to zoom in on specific areas of concern. Zooming gives us a close-up view that we can use to diagnose and treat problems better.
Finally, they allow us to take X-rays of the entire mouth in one session. One session saves time and is much more convenient for our patients. They also emit less radiation than traditional X-rays.
Who Should Get a Cone Beam Digital X-Ray and When?
Most patients may need a cone beam digital X-ray at some point in their lives. They are instrumental in cases where we need to better look at the teeth, gums, and jawbone. We can also use them to help plan dental implants, root canals, and other dental procedures.
What to Expect During and After the Procedure
The procedure itself is quick and easy. You will simply sit in a chair, and we will position the X-ray machine around your head. We will then take the X-rays, which take just a few minutes.
After the procedure, you can go about your day as usual. There is no recovery time and no special care required.
