Scottsdale Cosmetic Dentistry Practice Acquires New Dental Scanning Technology
Scottsdale, AZ — Dr. Jonathan Coombs and the Scottsdale Smile Center for general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in Scottsdale have announced the addition of a new cone beam device for dental scanning and precise imaging. Dr. Coombs says the new technology offers several benefits to patient comfort and more accurate planning for dental implants and other procedures.
As a Scottsdale cosmetic dentist, Dr. Coombs will be introducing the cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner to his patient services to help increase comfort and efficiency during dental treatment. With a radiation dose one hundred times lower than regular CT scanners, the new cone beam technology offers patients safer and faster image-taking. Dr. Coombs says he is excited about the new device and hopes it helps promote the most positive dental experience possible for patients at his practice.
Through the use of a cone shaped X-ray beam, Dr. Coombs says the imaging device offers a smaller size machine, lower radiation dosages, and a quicker procedure. Most commonly used for diagnostic purposes, he says he hopes to use the cone beam CT scan for dental implants in Phoenix, helping him achieve the most accurate placement and positioning possible. By utilizing X-ray technology, the cone beam produces clear, detailed images of bone, muscle, and blood vessels to help dentists diagnose patient health concerns and plan for more precise implantation and treatment approaches.
Dr. Coombs says he hopes the cone beam device alleviates patient concerns about uncomfortable X-ray imaging and radiation, all while improving his ability to treat his patients with the utmost care. He adds that through the advancement of state-of-the-art technology like the cone beam, dentists will ultimately be able to provide the highest quality results and more satisfactory patient outcomes.
