3D Cone Beam Scans: The Basics
The 3D cone beam is fairly new, and already it is becoming an essential tool. Here is what you need to know about 3D cone beam scans.
With traditional dental x-rays, we end up with a 2D image. We can detect many issues through a dental x-ray, but there are also plenty of things that we will end up missing because a 2D x-ray will not pick them up. A traditional dental x-ray can also take a little bit of time between having the x-ray taken and when we can look at it.
With 3D cone beam scans, we can better see the whole picture. The image that we will see is 3D, so we will be able to look at the results from all angles. We can also use a computer monitor and program so that we can zoom in where needed, or so we can look at the image from a different angle. This makes it a lot easier to be able to see what is going on because we can see the entire picture.
It is easy to take a 3D cone beam scan. You will not need any special preparation. All that you will need to do is to sit in the dental chair. The scanner will go all the way around your head and pick up the image. The whole thing will take only a few seconds, and there is no pain and nothing to be afraid of.
With a 3D cone scan, we will then have the image immediately. All that we need to do is to look at it on the computer monitor. This is a faster and better way to be able to get an idea of what is going on. This will help us to decide better how we should move forward. We can also manipulate the image so that we can see what the results will be like.
