Cone Beam X-Rays: A Revolution in Dental Imaging

At Holistic Dental Wellness, we utilize Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), a cutting-edge technology that has revolutionized dental imaging. Unlike traditional dental X-rays, which provide a two-dimensional view, CBCT scans offer a three-dimensional image of your teeth, roots, and surrounding structures

This advanced imaging technique allows us to diagnose and treat complex dental issues with greater accuracy and speed. It’s particularly effective in identifying infections in teeth and root canals, even those that are just starting or too small to be detected by conventional X-rays

How CBCT Helps in Diagnosing Infected Teeth and Root Canals

When patients present with tooth-related pain or swelling, a CBCT scan can reveal the root cause. For instance, a patient with a history of root canal therapy may show no abnormalities on a traditional X-ray, but a CBCT scan can reveal a large area of infection characterized by bone loss

Similarly, CBCT scans can identify inflammation around a tooth that’s causing sinus issues, which might not be visible on a two-dimensional image

By diagnosing these issues early, we can provide immediate treatment, preventing further complications and enhancing your overall health.

CBCT in Treatment Planning

Beyond diagnosis, CBCT scans also play a crucial role in treatment planning. The detailed 3D images allow us to plan and carry out complex root canal treatments and surgeries with precision, avoiding damage to nerves and other vital anatomical structures.
