3-D Cone Beam Imaging (CBCT)
Regular digital x-rays provide us with a highly-detailed two-dimensional image of your teeth. However, there are times where Dr. Humbert needs to see the structures of your mouth in greater detail, and that’s when he turns to 3-D cone beam imaging.
Referred to as Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT), this leading-edge technology allows our dentist to see the position of all your teeth and the anatomical structures of your mouth to identify nerve pathways, sinuses, soft tissue, and bone in a single scan.
We commonly use 3-D cone beam imaging at our Fort Collins dental office to plan wisdom tooth extraction and precise dental implant placement. In combination with customized surgical guides, Dr. Humbert can pre-plan your procedure to ensure your implant is placed in the optimal position in your jaw bone.
