Small Field CBCT
Radiology has long been a tool used in dentistry to assist the clinician with diagnosis and treatment planning.
Cavities, infections, impacted teeth and locating anatomical structures are just a few examples of why we rely on x-rays so much in our profession.
Today we are able to utilize high resolution small field three dimensional scans to improve our quality of patient care. We can more precisely determine where an implant can be successfully placed, if there is pathology in the jaws or a problem with a tooth such as fracture or root resorption. These are digital images with minimal patient radiation.
At Deer Ridge Periodontics we have the ability to provide Cone Beam CT images on site and provide reports for the referring dentist.
