Here at Signature Dentistry we pride ourselves in keeping up with the latest technologies available to assist our great team of professionals. We have recently employed a cone beam imaging device to take hyper-accurate images of patent’s mouths. The CBCT imaging machine uses a cone beam to generate 3D images of a patient’s teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and bone.
Cleft Palate Assessment
By scanning the entire dental structure from different angles, while rotating 360 degrees, our machine can turn over 200 separate two-dimensional images into a complete 3D scan. This imaging software is highly developed and can enhance the ability of your dentist to make more accurate assessments of your oral health.
Many people are worried about the radiation emitted from 3D dental X-rays, but let us tell you that the amount is minimal to cause any harm to your health. It is safe for patients of all ages, including children. If you wish to know more about the technology, mention it at your next appointment. We will be pleased to assist you.
