3D CBCT Elgin, TX
Cone beam X-ray Technology
X-rays are an integral part of both diagnosing problems during regular dental checkups and for providing information when planning a course of treatment. They allow us to see the condition of your teeth, their roots, jaw placement, and the overall composition of your facial bones. X-rays can help determine the presence or degree of periodontal disease, abscesses, and even pinpoint the location of cavities and other signs of disease that may not be possible to detect through a visual examination.

At Elgin Smiles Dental Care, we use an X-ray system that utilizes what is called Cone-Beam technology. Named such because the X-rays are emitted in a cone-shaped beam, it allows us to create a detailed, three dimensional view of your entire mouth; much more detailed than would be possible with regular X-rays alone. This brings numerous benefits to our patients and translates to a real difference in treatment. Equipped with this new information, we can determine exact optimal placement for dental implants, make fine adjustments when creating dentures, and improve early detection of cavities and periodontal disease. The list goes on and on.
Our 3D CBCT cone beam is just one of the many examples of our commitment to better technology and treatment for you!
