Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT, is a specialized 3D digital imaging device used in advanced dentistry. The CBCT uses a rotating cone-shaped x-ray beam to create a 3D view of the inner anatomy of the head and face. The insight from 3D images assists in diagnosing diseases and planning treatment, such as dental implant placement.
Most often, CBCT scans are used to further evaluate conditions diagnosed by your dentist. The sharp high-quality images unparalleled insight for our dentist. Our dentists can visualize bone structure, tooth position, soft tissues, and nerve pathways in detail.
The level of insight is so accurate, CBCT scans are a particularly useful tool for planning dental implant placement. Even more, evaluate if any preparatory treatments are needed, long before the actual procedure takes place. As a result, our doctors can accurately create a plan for your implant surgery.
Our Baton Rouge office uses the Sirona Orthophos SL 3D digital x-ray. Some of the dental issues that the CBCT scan can assist with include:
Digital radiograph, better known as digital x-ray provides a better experience for patients. The radiation that a patient is subjected to from tradition x-rays is a concern for patients. Comparatively, our digital x-rays is approximately an 80% reduction that patients are subjected to.
Additionally, digital radiographs provide a higher quality image for our dentists to review. In other words, a digital x-ray may provide insight into an issue that has just started. Besides, the image is immediately available on the chairside monitor in your treatment room.
Our soft tissue laser allows us to perform gum contouring, crown lengthening, biopsies, and cold sore treatments quickly and precisely. Stitches are not required when laser gum surgery is done at our Baton Rouge office. Unlike conventional methods of treatment, dental lasers provide scar-free healing and germ reduction.
Often, our dentist can perform un-planned laser dental surgery. The laser technology compliments the other advanced technology that provides same-day treatments.
