How It Works
Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) is used to identify and treat a wide range of dental issues. CBCT is a central diagnostic aid in comprehensive treatment planning. Using CBCT Dr. Keyser gets an extremely clear image of a patient’s bone structure, nerve canal locations, temporomandibular joints (TMJ) surfaces, muscles, and joints. Using CBCT allows Dr. Keyser to better assess the situation at hand and come up with the appropriate response, procedure, or treatment.
Sirona Galileos (CBCT) is a digital, 3-D X-ray that allows us to look at all surfaces of your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). This is an important step to properly assess the health and reach a conclusive diagnosis on the source of your pain. We are proud to be one of the practices in the area to utilize this technology.
3-D imaging is an excellent diagnostic tool, especially when considering implants. It allows Dr. Keyser to see the exact dimensions of your bone to determine ideal implant placement and necessity of bone grafting. Additionally, they can be used to image your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Dr. Keyser uses the Kodak Intra-oral Digital X-ray system (H2). This technology utilizes high-frequencies to provide high-quality image definition and allows us to generate crystal clear images of your mouth, making diagnosis easier and more accurate. This machine also produces minimal radiation exposure delivering up to 25% less radiation than that of standard generators.
