Nearly all patients undergoing routine oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures require some amount of diagnostic imaging prior to their surgery. At Northern Westchester Oral Surgery, we utilize a 3D cone beam CT (CBCT) scan unit from Carestream. This CS 9300 Select CBCT Unit represents the latest in facial imaging technology.
CBCT scanning has become a staple of planning in diagnosis and treatment. The cone beam 3D CT scan works by circling the patient’s face while taking clear and concise snap shots of the oral composition. This unique imaging provides quality information that cannot be acquired through conventional x-rays and helps Dr. Weber to identify the best surgical procedure for the patient’s oral condition. 3D cone beam CT can be used to diagnose a number of oral problems including tooth impactions, wisdom teeth removal, oral pathological processes, and numerous other oral health conditions. These scans can also help eliminate unexpected surprises during treatment, prevent any unnecessary procedures, and better prepare us for your upcoming surgery. CBCT scans benefit both the surgeon and the patient, resulting in less operating time and fewer complications.
Outstanding patient results start with precise diagnostic information. A CBCT unit allows for this high level of precision in your diagnostic and treatment planning-related imaging. Additionally, this completely digital unit is able to provide this high level of diagnostic information with less radiation than conventional CT scans.
If you have not already received a 3D CT scan prior to your initial consultation, you may receive one during your first visit to our office. Patient safety is our top priority, which is why Dr. Weber utilizes 3D cone beam CT scans to ensure that patients receive an accurate diagnosis and the best treatment possible.
