Novato Dental Implants Dentist Explains Cone-Beam Technology

Written by Dr. McConnell on Nov 24, 2015

Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth replacement option that helps our patients smile with confidence after tooth loss. Dental implants are a type of replacement teeth that we implant surgically into the jawbone. Implants are so popular today because they mimic both the function and the appearance of natural teeth.

Each implant is secured in the jawbone with a small titanium post that acts as a replacement root. Through a process known as osseointegration, the titanium root actually bonds with natural bone, forming a stable foundation for your dental restoration.

Innovative Cone Beam CT Technology

Our Novato Dental Implants Dentist uses the latest technology to provide our patients with efficient, effective dental implant care. Using innovative Cone Beam CT x-ray technology, we can create 3-D images of your teeth and bones, along with traditional 2-D digital bitewings.

Cone Beam technology allows us to better plan and complete dental implant treatment. We also use this technology to identify dental problems in their earliest stages, which facilitates fast, effective treatment.

Benefits of Cone Beam Technology

  • Faster scan time compared to traditional scans
  • Highly detailed 3D scan images provide our dental team with essential information about your dental health, and also allow us to better prepare for dental implant placement
  • Increased safety—Cone Beam scans emit significantly less radiation than traditional scan.
