At Tower Smiles Dental, the technology we use helps us provide patients with efficient dental care including digital and panoramic x-rays and cone-beam computed tomography.
Technologies We Use
At Tower Smiles Dental, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient. Because we can display digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
Digital & Panoramic X-Rays
Digital x-rays use digital sensors to produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth, gums, and oral structures and conditions.
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create a single, flat image of your entire mouth. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions, and implants.
Cone Beam Cat Scan
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray machine that generates 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan.
Images obtained with CBCT allow for more precise treatment planning, including analyzing your airway for snoring and sleep apnea treatment.
