Roseville Star Dental - Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Roseville Star Dental now offers an amazing new technology that creates virtually limitless views of the face, neck and teeth, for more complete treatment planning. We feature Gendex Cone Beam 3d CBCT Imaging.
It’s called 3D Cone Beam Imaging. It’s fast, simple and completely painless. Patients just sit or stand for a single 10-second scan and from that scan, the specialist can quickly see computer-generated views of the bones of the face, the teeth, and other details from any angle, in 3D and in color!
How it works
The 3D Cone Beam Imaging system is basically a digital x-ray scanner mounted on a rotating arm. (Like a digital camera, it uses digital technology to record images instead of old-fashioned film.) It’s called “Cone Beam” because the scanner projects x-rays in a carefully controlled, cone-shaped beam.
You simply sit in a chair while the scanner moves in one complete circle around your head, gathering all the scan data needed. There’s no special preparation necessary.
Your specialists can then call up whatever views they need on a computer monitor: 2D, 3D, “panoramic” views of your entire mouth, even sequences like pages in a book. They can view your images from any angle and in different magnifications, to see the relationships between bones, teeth, airways, nerves and tissues; to plan or evaluate your treatment.
And while 3D Cone Beam Imaging produces the same kind of high-quality images as a CT (CAT) scan, it does so with less radiation. For more information on Cone Beam 3d CBCT Imaging, visit the Gendex homepage: Click Here
