3D Cone Beam Imaging

One of the advanced dental technological tools Dr. Todd Anderson may use is 3D cone beam imaging. This state-of-the-art imaging technology shows your teeth and mouth in detail, allowing our dentist and team to provide you with treatments tailored to your exact needs.

What Is Cone Beam Imaging?

Cone beam imaging, also known as CT scanning or CBCT imaging, is a type of three-dimensional imaging technology. This device provides a detailed reconstruction of your teeth, mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose and throat, allowing our dentist to see a comprehensive view of your orofacial structures so that he can more easily diagnose and treat any developing dental problems you may have.

Cone beam imaging is extraoral, meaning that you simply allow the device to rotate around your head to capture the images. It is a very safe form of imaging and is beneficial to patients of all ages.

When Is Cone Beam Imaging Used?

Our dentist and team may use cone beam imaging to:

  • Analyze dental and facial trauma
  • Analyze TMJ disorders
  • Diagnose endodontic issues and plan root canal treatments
  • Diagnose tooth decay and other dental problems
  • Evaluate your jaws and face
  • Plan and evaluate the progress of orthodontic treatments
  • Plan dental implant placement procedures
  • View your head and neck as a comprehensive whole
  • Visualize abnormal teeth
