Galileous and Implant Planning
A cone beam is a 3-D radiograph that helps us visualize all the vital structures of your jaw. It allows us to measure the exact distance from your gums to your nerves. Thus this radiograph is a crucial part of planning implants.
A cone beam also lets us know with absolute certainty how many roots are in a tooth. This lets us get predictable results in difficult root canal cases.
There are many other instances in which a cone beam provides us with the information no other radiograph can. Talk to your dentist to find out if a cone beam can assist in your dental treatment.
