How Can Cone Beam Technology Help with Your Dental Implants?


Posted on 3/20/2016 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
A diagram of a dental implant inside a patients jaw.Cone beam technology is a specialized type of X-ray equipment that is used when regular dental X-rays aren't enough.

Your dentist or oral surgeon could use this technology to produce 3D images of the teeth, nerve pathways, bone, and soft tissues. There are also several ways that the technology could be useful when it comes to putting dental implants into place.

Diagnosing Problems with the Gums

Cone beam technology will provide a 3D image that allows your dentist to view the condition of your mouth to identify problem areas. This could tell your surgeon if your mouth is healthy enough to support a dental implant.

Treatment Plan Creation

If you are considering implants, it is crucial that they are put into a precise position, and this technology can help to accurately pinpoint that location. By coming up with a clear plan, you can speed up the time of your surgery and will also increase the chances that the procedure is successful.

Less Pain
The images created by cone beam technology will paint a clear picture of where your teeth are located, and this also provides information about the exact location of the nerve endings. With this information, your oral surgeon can avoid the nerves in order to minimize the amount of pain that you experience - both during the procedure and after it has been completed.

Faster Healing Times
With all of this information, your oral surgeon will be able to most effectively place your dental implants. With proper implantation and greater accuracy often comes improved recovery times, allowing you to get back to your normal activities and feeling better as quickly as possible.

There are a variety of great new dental technologies that can help with the success of your dental implants. If you are interested in this surgical procedure, contact our office today to see if you are a candidate.
