Cone Beam CT Scan

Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Canyon Dental Implant Center is one of the few dental practices to provide cone beam CT in the office. Most practices have to send their patients to an outside imaging center.

Computed Tomography ( CT ) imaging, also referred to as a Computed Axial Tomography ( CAT ) scan, is commonly used for diagnostic purpose.

Truly one of the most important imaging and diagnostic breakthroughs in modern dentistry, cone beam CT scan provides 3D images of the jaw structures and teeth, with extraordinary accuracy and detail.  It has become the gold standard for patient care in implant dentistry.

The 3D images enables us to plan our surgery so we are able to avoid causing damages to nerves and to vital structures, including blood vessels and the sinuses.

Virtual surgery can be performed and evaluated before actually surgery takes place.

And, since we have our own Cone Beam CT machine, Dr. Chen can, during a delicate surgical procedure, stop to take an additional scan, if warranted.  This gives Dr. Chen the ability to maintain the safest possible conditions, even in the most difficult surgical situations.



This equipment defines "state of the art".  Our cone beam CT, operated by our expertly trained staff, offers maximum convenience, safety and precision.  These 3D films of the jaws and the surrounding structures may, in some cases, alow us to detect potential problematic lesions of the head and neck.



The Best technology for the best care

Dr. Chen believes that our patients deserve the best service he can offer.  That's why we invest in the finest technology.  By using the latest technology, Dr. Chen is able to review high-quality images and can quickly give our patients the accurate treatment.  Our new system also offers patients a much lower X-ray dose than other conventional medical CT equipment, reducing radiation by up to 60 percent.  This helps us ensure the safety of our patients.

We want you to be relaxed throughout the diagnostic process and treatment phase.  We, at Canyon Dental Implant Center, are confident that this revolutionary technology will keep our patients safer and comfortable.  Most importantly, it allows us to provide you with the best dental care possible!
