Cone Beam Scanner Technology
We have all had those dental experiences that we wish could be forgotten. Just thinking about those dental office experiences where nothing seems up to date, the tools are archaic, and you keep thinking to yourself, “There has to be an easier way to have this dental procedure done.”
Dr. Clifford Melnick understands the need and the importance of dental technology. This is why he is committed to offering his patients unparalleled dental services with state-of-the-art procedures and techniques. Through this blog, you will learn about one of the newest additions used with Dr. Melnick’s practice, the Conebeam Scanner. Find out more about what this technology can do for you and your needs!
What Is the Conebeam Scanner?
The Conebeam Scanner is used as an imaging device before dental implant treatments. It allows for Dr. Clifford Melnick to:
- View structures and any features of abnormal anatomy
- Minimize risk by delivering more predictable outcomes
- Allow for Dr. Melnick to plan accurately and effectively to reduce invasiveness of surgery and recovery time
- Gives Dr. Clifford Melnick a 3-D view of a patient’s jawbone and other structures to ensure proper implant placement
Dr. Clifford Melnick considers the Conebeam Scanner to be an invaluable tool in implant planning. The 3-D cone beam images yield complete images that provide more details than X-rays, and use less radiation that ordinary CT scan machines. The Conebeam uses spatial resolution to capture hard bones in the images, with quicker scan times than traditional scans.
This dental technology allows Dr. Clifford Melnick to evaluate the jaw before dental implants, and make personalized modifications to a patient’s individual needs. With more detailed and accurate planning before surgery, Dr. Clifford Melnick can take additional details into account to minimize recovery time post-surgery.
