At Whidbey Dental Associates, we employ the latest dental technology to ensure superior care for our clients. As part of our commitment to providing patients in Oak Harbor with safer, faster, and more accurate care, we proudly feature the Cone Beam 3D digital CT scan system (CBCT). This advanced technology assists our Whidbey Island dentist in providing our patients with superior diagnostics and treatment.
CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. It uses a cone-shaped array of x-rays to create a highly-accurate, three-dimensional impression of your smile. This stunning view is visible on a computer screen, which allows us to shift perspective and observe the structures of your smile from a variety of angles.
For our patients, using the CBCT scanner is fast, simple, and noninvasive. It takes less than a minute for you to sit in a chair while the scanner moves around your head, recording multiple images. These images are consolidated to create a seamless view of your smile.
The enhanced view provided by our CBCT technology gives us a complete look at the patient’s anatomical structures which simply isn’t available with more traditional technologies. CBCT delivers a clear picture of what’s going on with the patient’s roots, bone structures, soft tissue, and nerves. That way, we can determine the exact cause of dental issues and devise the most effective course of treatment.
When we plan treatments and restorations with CBCT, we have a much better idea of how your dental structures are situated in relation to one another. This high clarity, low distortion view supplies comprehensive knowledge about the surgical site. This allows us to consider a full range of treatment options. We’re also able to perform oral surgeries and other procedures more quickly and accurately thanks to CBCT technology.
Dental implants are an extremely effective and attractive way to restore smiles for people with missing teeth. Dental implants rely on a strong and stable bond between the patient’s jawbone and the base of the dental implant which is known as the implant fixture. CBCT helps our dentist place your implant fixture in the ideal location, ensuring optimum prospects for success.
