Matthews Family Dentistry is proud to offer Cone Beam CT scanning in their office, a service that less than 5% of dentists are currently using!
Cone Beam CT scanning machines allow patients to sit upright in a chair while an arm rotates around their head, capturing multiple images of their head from different angles. The images will then be put together to produce a 3D image of the patient’s anatomy. This advanced technology will help your dentist diagnose you more accurately and plan treatment and surgery accordingly.
The machines can be used to help diagnose a variety of dental conditions including impacted teeth, tumors, TMJ, periodontal disease, implants and more. The procedure is painless and non-invasive and is accessible to all our patients including those requiring handicap access. And because the scan time is shorter than with a regular CT machine, x-ray exposure for the patient is up to 10x less.
Contact the office today to find out how this exciting technology can make your treatment easier than ever!
