Cone Beam Technology makes the x-ray process safe, more comfortable and more precise

Visual exams are an important part of any dental visit, but sometimes x-rays help to tell the whole story of what is going on in a particular tooth. We have state of the art 3D technology to help Dr. Rob and Dr. Deb diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with the greatest of confidence.

Unlike traditional spiral CT scanners, this 3-D system uses cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal clear images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.   Our new 3-D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits.

Our new scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area that best suits your treatment needs.  This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.   This system gives our doctors high resolution images using less radiation.

The unit’s open design makes exams more comfortable with both seated and standing options to accommodate patients of all sizes, and is wheelchair accessible.

Why is all this important?

Because with clearer images, Dr. Rob and Dr. Deb can plan your treatment more effectively and help you to understand  the path for your dental care.
