3-D Cone Beam
At Topeka Dentistry, we invest in modern technology to make each dental visit as comfortable and efficient as possible. Our 3-D cone beam imaging can be done in the comfort of our Topeka, KS dental office. Using advanced digital x-ray technology allows Dr. Carrie Peterson and Dr. Ben Rutherford to view your oral structure in precise detail. Three-dimensional images will enable us to navigate your teeth, gums, soft tissues, nerves, and bones. We utilize state-of-the-art dental technology to help us place dental implants and complete other dental procedures.
The cone-shaped x-ray beam rotates around the patient while we create images. Special 3-D software can render the images into three-dimensional views. Traditional two-dimensional x-rays are limited to the bone structure they can display, especially if your Topeka dentist wants to see if a root canal is needed, or how an impacted wisdom tooth is situated.
We use the 3-D cone beam imaging for:
- Viewing your sinuses
- Placing dental implants
- Dental extractions
- Diagnosing TMJ
- Evaluating tooth fractures
- Diagnosing infection or decay
