Beverly Hills dental practice offers onsite CT scan to assist in accurate diagnosesDr. Sanda Moldovan is one of early adopters of CT scans in order to obtain detailed three-dimensional oral images. This type of x-ray technology provides extremely clear and accurate images to be used to make diagnoses and in planning treatments. With the assistance of a CT scan, the doctor can pinpoint anatomical areas to avoid in dental procedures, as well as to identify specific areas of concern that require special attention.
CT scans used in dentistry reveal detailed anatomy without distortion. This facilitates precision when performing even complex procedures. Being able to see exact images means the best possible outcomes for patients. Images obtained via CT scan are digital, which makes them available almost immediately for viewing. Due to their 3-D characteristics, images are able to be viewed from multiple angles, and can be enhanced or enlarged in order to take a closer look at complex conditions. This technology provides the means to obtain the most comprehensive information available. The CT scan experience is fast and comfortable for patients, who also are subjected to less radiation than with traditional formats.
One of the ideal uses for CT scans is in the placement of dental implants. Images obtained are helpful in identifying the best location, as far as bone structure, for surgical implants. At the same time, nerves, blood vessels, and other strategic areas can be pinpointed to avoid causing damage. Another area in which the scan proves very valuable is in assessing bone loss and deterioration in order to determine the impacts of periodontal disease.
Most important, the CT-scan helps to diagnose dental infections which are most of the time not seen properly on regular dental x-rays. If you have symptoms and the dentist cannot see anything wrong, a CT scan may unveil the issue.
