3D Cone Beam Imaging
Imagine being able to perform any task you have throughout your day with a full 3D view of what you’re working with. Your level of accuracy would go up dramatically, you would take less time to perform a task, and you would just get better results when you were done. At Lakeway Smiles’ Downtown Location, Dr. Patel has done exactly that with 3D Cone Beam imaging tools.
Utilizing some of the latest technology in dental care and examination, Dr. Patel’s use of 3D Cone Beam technology has changed the way that patients receive care. In the past, simple x-ray machines were used to get a closer look at the condition of teeth, their alignment, the health of the roots of teeth, and more. With 3D Cone Beam imaging, it’s possible to take an image that gives far more information, which can be absolutely crucial in providing the highest level of care.
- Better results with Dental Implants
- More Accuracy Means Less Pain. By being aware of all of the different intricacies of a tooth before a single tool is used on a patient, Dr. Patel can provide a much more accurate procedure every time. From the placement of Dental Implants, to identifying trouble spots in teeth before they become painful and expensive to correct, more visual information means better results in less time.
- More Options for Cosmetic Care. A greater awareness of the teeth of a patient also means more options in how issues may be corrected. 3D Cone Beam technology provides a fully three dimensional view of teeth, including the ability to rotate and zoom in on areas where a procedure will be performed to see the surface from every single angle.
- Reduced Chance of Discomfort or Complication. If you’ve ever had a dentist accidentally hit a nerve in your tooth, you already know what can happen during a procedure. These accidents are almost never on purpose; it’s a lack of awareness or visual confirmation on where to operate that’s often the cause. With full 3D imaging tools available, Dr. Patel can greatly reduce any unforeseen circumstances, and greatly increase patient comfort as a result.
The more accurate an image is, the more accurate the treatment will be. With 3D Cone Beam imaging tools, and other imaging tools available at Lakeway Smiles, Dr. Patel can provide patients with an entirely new level of care.
