Cone Beam, CT Scan and 3D Imaging
Dr. Mone is able to utilize cone beam CT scanning to generate 3D high definition x-rays. The use of 3D imaging allows Dr. Mone to evaluate the jaw bone anatomy prior to dental implant placement. 3D imaging can also identify significant dental infections that would be missed utilizing conventional dental x-ray technology.
Instead of using a conventional film, we use a special computer x-ray sensor which creates a digital x-ray picture in our computer. This allows us to reduce the x-ray exposure by more than 90%. It allows Dr. Mone to immediately review the x-ray to confirm the diagnosis.
