Three dimensional dental imaging technology allows Wellington Family Dentistry to provide state-of-the-art services to our patients. In our effort to provide the latest technology in dentistry to our patients, Wellington Family Dentistry is pleased to offer cone beam 3D dental imaging.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging is a diagnostic imaging technology that uses radiation in a manner similar to x-rays, otherwise known as conventional radiographic imaging. The difference between traditional x-ray imaging and cone beam 3D imaging, is that cone beam images are converted into a three-dimensional view that can then be manipulated by sophisticated dental computer software. Cone beam imaging evolved from the development of CAT Scan imaging in medicine. CAT Scans, or Computerized Axial Tomography, utilize a fan-shaped beam of radiation that rotates around the patient hundreds of times per second, with the patient being moved a precise distance in the scanner. Cone beam differs in that cone beam scans use a cone-shaped beam that is directed at a detector that rotates around the patient. Unlike CAT scans, cone beam 3D imaging can be applied to dental practices.
