In dentistry, we are constantly working with 3D structures when tending to the human jaw, but it is often hard to fully analyze and diagnose oral health issues when you cannot view the jaw from a 3D scan. 2-dimensional x-rays and oral scans simply do not provide the details that help to make an accurate diagnosis.
Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a technology that allows dental practitioners and other medical professionals to scan various areas of the jaw and compile them into a working 3D view of the scanned areas. With this, dentists can develop a better understanding of the pains, discomforts, and oral issues troubling patients. Simply having a more detailed look at your jaw can increase the accuracy of diagnosis immensely.
The beauty of 3D imaging machines is their ability to combine a number of diagnostics, treatment planning, mock results, and patient communication in one tool. Combined with the clinical efficiency, you can improve treatment, productivity, and overall customer satisfaction with higher quality dental care. At Beaufils Dental, we are proud to offer patients 3D dental imaging to help capture HD scans of everything from a single arch to your full skull to best understand how to treat your unique dental ailments. The consistent images provide dentists with clear images of hard-to-see areas of the mouth that may otherwise not be analyzed without CBCT.

CBCT is a versatile tool that can be employed in a variety of dental care treatments, including implants, root canal therapy, orthodontics, and more! Teeth can be viewed in 3D, models can be made, and precision control helps to provide accurate anatomical measurements. These powerful solutions can not only help pinpoint a patient’s exact problems and provide an effective solution, they also help to improve recovery time and make surgical procedures easier by detecting unseen nerves or helping pinpoint the best location for incisions.
At Beaufils Dental, providing the highest standard of oral health care is our most important goal. We strive to keep up with the latest technology that will help us treat all our patients with precision and attention to detail.
