Unveiling a Clearer View of Oral Health

CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) 3D imaging is a revolutionary technology that provides detailed and comprehensive three-dimensional images of the teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures. At Holmes Endodontics, we are proud to offer CBCT imaging as a valuable tool in diagnosing and planning various dental procedures, including endodontic treatments. With its ability to capture highly accurate and precise images, CBCT 3D imaging enables Dr. Spencer Holmes to provide the highest level of care to our patients.

The Advantages of CBCT 3D Imaging

Firstly, CBCT 3D imaging enables dentists to make accurate and comprehensive diagnoses. The detailed images allow for a thorough examination of the teeth, roots, jawbone, and surrounding structures, aiding in the identification of dental issues such as infections, fractures, impacted teeth, and abnormalities.

Secondly, CBCT scans assist in treatment planning with enhanced precision. The three-dimensional images provide dentists with precise measurements and evaluations of bone density, nerve pathways, and anatomical structures. This information is invaluable for planning procedures like dental implant placement, orthodontic treatments, and complex root canal therapies, ensuring optimal outcomes and minimizing risks.

Another advantage of CBCT 3D imaging is the reduction in radiation exposure. Compared to traditional medical CT scans, CBCT scans utilize a lower radiation dosage while maintaining high image quality. This prioritizes patient safety and makes CBCT a safer alternative for diagnostic imaging.

Applications of CBCT 3D Imaging

CBCT 3D imaging has numerous applications in endodontics, enabling our endodontists to provide the highest level of care.

CBCT imaging allows for a detailed assessment of root canal morphology, including the number, curvature, and branching of canals. This information is crucial for successful root canal treatments, especially in challenging cases with complex root canal anatomy.

CBCT images provide a comprehensive view of the teeth and surrounding structures, aiding in the diagnosis of dental infections, periapical lesions, cysts, or tumors. The 3D imaging allows our endodontists to evaluate the extent of bone loss
