Introducing Cone Beam Technology

Cone Beam Technology Brooklyn NY

What is a CBCT Scan?

Dental Cone Beam Tomography (Dental CBCT) is a specialized type of X-ray that provides more information than conventional dental or facial X-rays. This computerized scan uses advanced technology to generate three-dimensional (3-D) images.

What are the benefits of a dental CBCT scan?

1. It provides 3-D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone that are considerably more detailed than conventional two-dimensional dental X-rays.
2. It allows for more precise diagnosis and treatment planning.
3. It is simple and comfortable to take and can diagnostically image both bone and soft tissue simultaneously.

What are the common uses of a Dental CBCT scan?

1. Evaluate the position of teeth, bone structure, jaw joints, and airway.
2. Aid in:
  • Accurate placement of implants
  • Surgical planning for the removal of impacted wisdom teeth
  • 3-D orthodontic evaluation
  • 3-D orthodontic evaluation

Intra-Oral Camera – You Become Part of the Team

Dr. Lau works closely with patients to create a bond of teamwork. One of the ways he brings this about is with a high-tech tool called the intra-oral camera. This amazing device is a tiny video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your smile. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing well. This allows you to participant in each dental decision.

State-of-the-Art Sterilization

We take sterilization very seriously at our office. In addition to cleaning and sterilizing each instrument after every use, single-use tools are employed as needed. Instruments are sterilized after each use with a special unit called the autoclave, which is regularly monitored by an independent lab to make sure of the highest level of safety and cleanliness. We think your health is too important to take even the slightest risk.

Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the latest dental technology, give us a call today at (718) 232-4044.
