Cone Beam: 3D Imaging for Dental Implants
At University Periodontal Associates we are able to create a precise map of your mouth using 3D radiography. Until a few years ago, the presence of 3D radiography was relatively unknown and unused in dentistry, but increasingly, Specialists, including Dr. Dennison, are seeing the importance of this technology.

What is 3D Cone Beam Radiography?
3D Cone Beam Imaging offers Dr. Dennison much more information than he is able to get from a simple flat x-ray. This new technology provides us with a more complete visual map to create a plan for your situation from every angle. As a full mouth exposure, we receive a 3D digital dental x-ray of your entire oral cavity. This is ideal when placing single tooth implants, or plotting the placement of several implants for implant retained dentures, known as All on 4.
What information can be found through Cone Beam Radiography?
With a full digital x-ray of the entire oral cavity, Dr. Dennison is better able to create a plan, and meet the patient's needs. This is not limited to dental implants, the Cone Beam Radiography is used for diagnosis, to create a surgical plan, to create dental appliances, and more. He is able to gain the following information:
Additionally, the Cone Beam technology is so sensitive that it has the ability to detect even subtle variations in the patient's bone density, helping us predict the patient's future dental conditions and help determine the success of surgical procedures and the longevity of their restorative treatments.
