CONE BEAM (CBCT)
Depending on the results of your visual exam, we may recommend cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging. CBCT devices allow us to get a 3D image of your teeth, which are used to establish an accurate diagnosis and to inform the clinical research conducted by the dentist.
Digital X-rays are needed when planning:
- Dental implants (if further information is needed about the available bone mass and anatomical constraints, such as sinuses, nerve endings, etc.)
- Complex wisdom tooth extractions
- Complex orthodontic treatments
- Complex root canals
CEREC (ceramic reconstructions)
CEREC technology is used to quickly create comfortable crowns, inlays and onlays. Your dentist will start by taking a scan of your teeth using an optical camera. The restoration is then modelled on the computer and immediately produced on site in a special milling machine.
- Your restoration is created and installed in a single appointment
- Attractive and durable solution that often lasts more than 20 years
- No dental impression material to trigger nausea
If you’d like to know more about CEREC technology, please ask any member of our staff.
