For more complex dental procedures, Dr. Christopher McGonigle can take high-resolution images of your mouth using i-Cat® 3D Imaging. This is a type of a cone beam scanner which allows our dentist to see many angles of your teeth, jaw, and oral cavity so he can do a better job at planning treatment. Call Advanced Dental Care to learn more about i-Cat® 3D Imaging in Burlington, Massachusetts.
At our office, we are committed to utilizing advanced dental technology to always provide you with the highest level of dental care. We are proud to utilize cone beam 3D imaging technology at our dental practice. Cone beam 3D technology is an imaging system that provides our dentist and team with a three-dimensional image reconstruction of your teeth, mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose, and throat. Our dentist may use dental cone beam 3D imaging to:
Plan dental implant placement
Evaluate the jaws and face
View the head and neck as a comprehensive whole
Diagnose tooth decay (cavities) and other dental problems
Detect endodontic problems and plan root canal therapy
Analyze dental and facial trauma
Plan and evaluate the progress of orthodontic treatment
Visualize abnormal teeth
Assess a TMJ disorder
Cone beam 3D imaging is effective for diagnosing and evaluating dental conditions, as well as planning treatments. One of the advantages of 3D cone beam technology is that it provides our dentist and team with a view of your mouth and supporting structures that is more comprehensive than that provided by digital X-rays. To learn more about cone beam 3D imaging and how it helps us provide you with exceptional care, we invite you to contact us today.
