For Fast, Safe & Effective Care
At the dental implant office of Dr. John M. Conness, we’re proud to feature advanced dental imaging technology to streamline and optimize your treatment. Our Ottawa, IL implant dentist strives to deliver customized, patient-oriented care through digital imaging.
We welcome patients from La Salle, Naplate, and Stoneyville to experience the difference state-of-the-art technology can make in dental care. Explore our advanced implant technology below.
CBCT stands for cone beam computed tomography, a cone-shaped array of x-rays that generate detailed 3D images of your teeth and jawbone. Dr. Conness uses CBCT imaging for safe and accurate treatment planning. These detailed scans allow him to view the surgical site from different angles. This information is vital in planning your implant surgery, as it helps us pinpoint the hard and soft tissues of your mouth.
The best part about CBCT imaging is its ease of use. The CBCT scanner takes less than one minute to make a single rotation around your head, providing all the information Dr. Conness needs for your implant treatment.
Digital X-rays are another example of state-of-the-art technology our dentist in Ottawa, IL 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. However, digital X-rays are easy to store and are instantly retrievable for convenient dentist review.
Dr. Conness may also use an intraoral camera to generate detailed images of your smile. This small device resembles a pen and features a disposable sheath to eliminate unhealthy bacteria. Our intraoral camera provides clear pictures of your teeth and gums that Dr. Conness and our dental technician can view on a computer screen in real-time.
