Traditional x-rays that show the teeth in two dimensions have been used for decades to evaluate teeth for cavities, infections, fractures, and other problems. While these x-rays are still the most commonly taken x-rays in our office, we also have a Cone Beam CT machine which allows Dr. Bousaba to evaluate the teeth and jaws in three dimensions. Three dimensional x-rays help to identify problems that can be overlooked with traditional two-dimensional x-rays.
Dr. Bousaba routinely uses the Cone Beam CT machine when performing root canal therapy, placing dental implants, and completing bone grafting. This allows us to identify various anatomical structures that significantly improve the predictability of care provided.
