3D Implant Planning Bethesda and Washington, DC
Our office is totally committed to proper diagnosis, safety and precision in treating you. As such, we have recently made an investment in technology that allows us to more accurately diagnose your situation, and place implants with more safety and precision. This piece of technology is Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT. It is similar to a hospital CT scan, although it is much faster (around 10 seconds) and much safer.
Cone Beam Technology
While standard xrays give us a 2D view of your jaws, CBCT gives us a 3D view so that we can assess the width of bone available for implant placement. This allows us to more accurately and safely plan procedures. It also allows us to communicate more effectively with you to describe your situation since we have better knowledge of what your situation look like.
