How CBCT Scans Improve Your Treatment
A CBCT scanner allows Dr. Chaudhry to view high-quality, 3D images of your teeth, gums, and jaw. This helps him detect issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye, or even traditional x-rays. Keep reading to learn how our CBCT scanner can improve your dental care experience.
The initial placement of a dental implant is crucial to its success. The virtual model of your smile from CBCT scans helps Dr. Chaudhry identify the densest areas of your jawbone and anticipate any potential issues that could interfere with placing your implant.
Traditional x-rays were used in the past, but the value they can provide is limited. Thanks to CBCT scans, Dr. Chaudhry can place your implants with unmatched confidence and precision.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Removing wisdom teeth can be dangerous if your dentist doesn’t take highly accurate scans before the procedure. Sometimes, impacted wisdom teeth can be positioned against sensitive nerves or other teeth. By obtaining this information in advance, Dr. Chaudhry can ensure a safe and pain-free extraction.
Your face and jawbone are full of sensitive nerve endings, and it’s crucial that these nerves aren’t damaged in any way during surgery. Before procedures such as dental implant placement or wisdom tooth removal, Dr. Chaudhry will use the CBCT scanner to identify the location of all the nerves in your mouth. This allows him to avoid these areas during your procedure.
CBCT Scans Provide Security
