Advanced Technologies for Your Safety & ComfortOne of the technologies we use at DFW is the cone beam x-ray. A cone beam x-ray is a device that produces a 3D x-ray. The panoramic view allows us to view the health of your teeth more accurately and with more detail all the way around a tooth, not just from the side. There are also several other advantages of the cone beam x-ray technology compared to traditional x-rays:
• Higher quality images
• Images with less distortion
• Cross sectional imaging
• Less radiation than a full mouth x-ray set
• Less time and more patient comfort
• Greater accuracy for restorative procedures
The in depth look at the teeth, mouth and jaw that the cone beam provides helps us detect early signs of dental issues. Early detection is a key to long term dental health and fewer lifetime dental visits.
