Cone Beam Technology


Advances in dental technology allow us to provide our patients with state-of-the-art care. One such piece of equipment is our cone beam imaging system. Cone beam imaging provides us with a precise 3D image of not just your teeth, but other oral structures including root canals, nerves, and sinuses. The image can be rotated on our monitors, allowing us to view our patient’s mouths from all angles — which makes it easier to diagnose conditions and develop a treatment plan that works. Our patients love that it’s fast, non-invasive, and exposes them to less radiation than traditional x-rays.

Too Many Uses To Count

One of the reasons we love cone beam imaging is that it can be used for a number of treatments, including:

  • Sleep Apnea Treatment — Because the cone beam provides us with an image of the oral, nasal, and laryngeal structures, it helps with diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea.
  • TMJ Disorders — A 3D image of the jaw and connective tissues allows us to more easily determine the cause of jaw pain associated with disorders of the temporomandibular joint.
  • Dental Implants — Cone beam imaging helps to determine the optimal position for dental implants, as it allows us to see which areas to avoid, including the nerves and sinuses.
  • Orthodontics — Knowing the exact position of the tooth roots in the jaw helps us plan treatment more accurately, helping our patients complete treatment more quickly.

This is just the beginning of a long list of procedures that can be improved by the use of cone beam imaging.
