3D CONE BEAM

Cone Beam CT (CBCT) scanning represents a major technological step forward for the patients, dentists, and staff of Cooper Moss Advanced Dentistry.

CBCT imaging provides our clinical team with a three dimensional (3D) “volumetric” scan of a patient’s teeth and surrounding jaw, sinus, and temporomandibular joint structures. A simple 14-second scan by our Galileos 3D CBCT, combined with powerful software tools, allows our dentists to visualize a patient’s dental, periodontal, and potential pathology status much more completely than in the past. In fact, studies indicate that 25{da8e9683d6a3025d851abf19573d0587a39d440d1b81f4b46f5f676e04b2b32b} more abnormalities are found by clinicians with CBCT scans than with traditional two dimensional X-rays.

CBCT images and software provide not only expanded diagnostic information, but also offer significant treatment planning advantages. The Galileos 3D scanning device was selected for our practice because of its ability to integrate with the CEREC CAD/CAM technology. The synergy of these two technologies allows our dentists to fully plan, design, and predictably place dental implants here in our office. Dental implant placement is an exciting clinical service that we have been offering to our patients since 2011.
