Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging
Dr. Jon Flynn and Dr. Monique Flynn are able to utilize the latest technology in 3-dimensional imaging to assist them in diagnosis, treatment planning, and surgical placement of dental implants. A scan is recorded in 8 to 30 seconds, in our office, and produces a 3-dimensional image of the patient’s upper and lower jaws within minutes. A cone beam, or cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), scan can be used in the following ways:
- dental implant treatment planning
- identify dental pathology
- locate and identify dental anatomy (sinuses, nerve positions, impacted teeth)
- orthodontic movement
- fractured teeth
- endodontic (root canal) treatment
In appropriate cases, a 3-dimensional image is obtained of the patient’s upper and/or lower jaw. Using specialized in office software, Dr. Jon Flynn or Dr. Monique Flynn can then efficiently and accurately treatment plan a case by virtually placing dental implants into the scan. A 3-dimensional image of the jawbone, implants, and proposed final restoration can be rendered. This type of technology allows for more accurate, safe, and appropriate placement of dental implants within the bone. A surgical guide can also be made from the plan developed if needed. This guide increases the efficiency and safety of the implant surgery in difficult or advanced cases. All initial scans recorded in our office are reviewed by a radiologist to verify findings and identify pathology and anatomical landmarks.
