CT Scans and Cone Beam Imaging systems generate 3-D, high-definition x-rays within seconds. The panoramic images are remarkably clear, which helps with diagnosing and treating dental problems. These scans allow Dr. Boyajian to quickly assess your dental needs and get you back to enjoying your life. Scans can be completed in less time than you might expect from traditional imaging equipment.

The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority. That is why we utilize a cone beam imaging system in our office. Unlike traditional x-ray systems, 3d dental imaging produces a very low dose of radiation, thus reducing unnecessary exposure. Some additional benefits of cone beam imaging include:

• Visualize anatomy that can not be diagnosed externally or from traditional x-rays
• Create better, more effective treatment plans
• Assess benefits and risk of treatment options
• Analyze the position and orientation of critical structures, such as nerves, prior to the procedure
• Up to 10x less radiation exposure to the patient than traditional x-rays
• Faster scan time (10-40 seconds vs. several minutes)
• Less expensive

The Cone Beam is used in many dental procedures. It can be used to determine a treatment plan for dental implants, helping determine size and placement of the implant. It can also be used to diagnose and treat periodontal disease. Some additional benefits include:

• Implant planning
• Earlier detection of oral infections and tumors
• TMJ analysis
• Airway studies (i.e. sleep apnea)
• Impacted teeth
• Periodontal disease
