Advanced Imaging Technology
For Fast, Safe & Effective Care
Dr. Conness features advanced technology to provide you with the best possible care. Using our CBCT imaging technology and digital x-rays, we deliver effective treatment that’s faster, safer, and easier for you.
CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. It uses a cone-shaped array of x-rays to generate remarkably clear 3D pictures of your smile. Dr. Conness is able to view these images on a computer screen.
CBCT imaging is an invaluable tool that Dr. Conness uses for safe and accurate treatment planning. It allows him to view the surgical site from a number of different angles. This information is vital in order to plan your implant surgery, allowing us to know exactly where all the hard and soft tissue such as bones and nerve endings are located.
The best part about CBCT imaging is how easy it is for our you — the CBCT scanner takes less than a minute to make a single rotation around your head and you’re finished.
Digital x-rays are another example of state-of-the-art technology that Dr. Conness uses to provide you with advanced diagnostic care. The standard type of x-rays are difficult to store and you can only view a few of them at a time. But digital x-rays are easy to store and they’re instantly retrievable, so Dr. Conness can easily review your dental history.
Dr. Conness also uses our intraoral camera to generate accurate images of your smile. This small device resembles a pen and it has a disposable sheath for your protection.
Our intraoral camera provides clear pictures of your teeth and gums that Dr. Conness can view on a computer screen in real time. He can even use it to show you what’s happening with your smile.
Dr. Conness is a talented implant dentist with over 25 years of experience. He’s recognized as a Diplomate by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and he’s studied at the prestigious Misch Resnik International Implant Institute.
