We take pride in being on the cutting edge when it comes to endodontic care. To do so, we employ the latest technology, including Microscope, 3D imagery, digital imagery, and extra oral photography.
The Cone Beam CT Scanner
Implemented in 2012 in Dr. Grover's practice, the Cone Beam CT Scanner (CBCT) creates a high quality, three-dimensional image of a tooth or teeth and supporting structures, using low radiation exposure. This makes possible more targeted, more precise, and more effective treatment. The advanced technology of the Kodak 9000 limited field of view 3D scanner generates a three-dimensional image of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. This is an extremely beneficial aid to our ability to deliver precisely targeted and effective treatment.
CBCT scans are only taken when necessary, and when that is the case, the benefits are invaluable:
The 3D image created by the CBCT scanner provides a cost-effective way to garner information about endodontic conditions that cannot be obtained using conventional, two-dimensional imagery. This allows Dr. Grover to better detect, locate, and treat endodontic conditions, such as abscess formation, resorption, and complex anatomy. Unlike a conventional dental x-ray, a CBCT scan can distinguish the differences among various tissues, such as bone, teeth, nerves, and soft tissue.
Moreover, CBCT scans often provide information that helps unnecessary treatment to be avoided.
In summary, a CBCT scan is a cost-effective way to identify a wide range of dental issues, which can result less expensive and more effective and efficient treatment.
