Novato Dental Implants Dentist Explains Reasons for Using Cone Beam Technology

Written by Dr. McConnell on Sep 27, 2016

Until recently, many people with missing teeth had only a few choices like bridges or dentures. Today, there’s no longer a reason to live with bridges that are obvious or dentures that don’t fit well.

Now we can offer the carefree convenience of beautiful dental implants. Dental implants are a remarkable option for tooth replacement that allows you to smile again with confidence after the loss of a tooth. They are a type of replacement tooth that our dentist surgically implants into the jawbone. Implants are so popular today because they mimic both the function and the appearance of natural teeth.

Implants are secured in the jawbone with a small, biocompatible 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.

Cone Beam CT Technology

As part of our efforts to always bring our patients the most updated care, our Novato Dental Implants Dentist uses state-of-the art technology for efficient, effective dental implant care. Using innovative Cone Beam CT x-ray technology allows us to create 3-D images of your teeth and bones, along with traditional 2-D digital bitewings.

Cone Beam technology provides us with detailed information that allows us to better plan and complete dental implant treatment. This technology is also used 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
