Cone Beam Computed Tomography or CBCT is the very latest in digital imaging available to dental patients. A Cone Beam CT Scanner provides patients with a three-dimensional view of their upper and lower teeth and supporting jaw bones. This three-dimensional view is far superior to traditional two-dimensional radiographs, such as bitewings or panoramic radiographs.
At Palmer Dentistry, we have invested in this state of the art technology for the benefit of our patients. The Cone Beam CT Scanner allows us to find cracked teeth or broken roots, precisely pinpoint an abscess, or assess the quality and amount of bone preparatory to the placement of a dental implant. The Cone Beam CT technology revolutionizes complex dental treatment planning, as a near-perfect three-dimensional scan is far superior to a two-dimensional image.
