At Coastal Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we want to ensure you receive the most accurate diagnoses and plans for treatment. We utilize a 3D cone beam CT (CBCT) scan. This CBCT unit represents the latest in facial imaging technology. Patients who undergo routine oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures require some amount of diagnostic imaging prior to their surgery.
3D CBCT scans have become a staple of diagnosis and treatment for oral surgery procedures. The cone beam 3D CT scan works by circling your head and face while taking clear and concise images. This unique imaging provides quality information that cannot be acquired through conventional X-rays. Using this type of scan, Drs. Pitrowski and Goldberg can identify your condition, make the most accurate diagnosis, and determine the best procedure specific to your condition. The 3D cone beam CT can be used to diagnose many oral problems including wisdom teeth removal, tooth impactions, implant placement, and oral pathological processes, just to name a few. These innovative scans also help to prevent any unexpected issues, unnecessary procedures, and better prepares us for your upcoming procedure. CBCT scans benefit both you and our surgeons.
Beneficial results start with accurate diagnostic information. A CBCT unit offers us a high level of precise diagnostic information with less radiation than conventional CT scans. If you have not had a 3D CT scan prior to your initial consultation, you may receive one during your first visit to our office at Coastal Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center. Patient safety is our top priority, which is why we utilize the 3D cone beam CT scan to ensure that you receive the best treatment possible.
