At Gentle Dentistry, we strive to deliver superior care to all of our patients. First of all, that means creating a warm and reassuring atmosphere where our patients can feel safe and secure.
Staying current with new trends and developments in dentistry is the second step we take to ensure that we’re providing outstanding care. This involves keeping up to date with our reading and constantly pursuing continuing education. Dentists and dental hygienists have to be lifetime learners. Otherwise, we’ll be left in the dust by our competitors.
The final way that we work to provide our patients with outstanding care is by employing advanced technology in our practice. One of the most effective and useful technologies we use is CBCT.
What is CBCT?
CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. This innovative technology uses an array of x-rays to create a stunning and accurate three dimensional (3D) picture of your smile. CBCT dramatically enhances our ability to diagnose and treat a variety of issues. It’s also invaluable for planning and performing the placement of dental implants.
How CBCT Helps Advanced Diagnosis and Treatment
When it comes to getting an accurate picture of what’s going on with your smile, CBCT technology is lightyears ahead of traditional x-ray and CAT scan technology. It helps us locate issues in order to deliver the ideal treatment in a variety of situations.
When we’re investigating a dental issue, CBCT gives us a comprehensive picture of all the surrounding structures, including nerves, bones, and soft tissue. This makes the planning process so much easier and it helps us avoid any surprises once we begin a procedure. Having more information before we begin a procedure makes it possible to consider various options during the planning phase of treatment.
Superior Implant Placement
Dental implants are a fantastic way to restore your smile. They provide unmatched comfort, functionality, and stability over alternative restorations such as dentures and dental bridges. A key factor in the effectiveness of dental implants is the secure bond that your body develops with the implant. It’s crucial to place the implant in the right spot to achieve a strong connection between the implant and your jawbone.
Placing dental implants is a high precision procedure. With CBCT technology, we can pinpoint the exact location for achieving optimum success in the placement of dental implants.
