Patients who need dental implants in Harrisonburg, VA now have a safer alternative to traditional x-rays that can be received from Drs. Steven and Victor Saunders and Dr. Jeff Dickson. Cone Beam Imaging technology makes it faster and safer than before to receive remarkably clear 3D images of the whole mouth.

Drs. Saunders and Dickson encourage patients who need dental implants in Harrisonburg, VA to learn about the benefits of Cone Beam Imaging. This revolutionary technology produces high definition x-rays in a remarkably short period of time. These images allow Drs. Dickson and Saunders to perform a variety of periodontal procedures with greater accuracy and speed. They also produce very low levels of radiation, thereby reducing the amount of exposure that a patient receives during treatment.

Traditional x-ray technology often produces images that are grainy and unclear. As a result, periodontal professionals must often use their best judgment to decipher dental structures and locations with the help of traditional x-ray images. Cone Beam Imaging helps improve accuracy during periodontal procedures by delivering higher-quality images that are much more clear and easy to decipher. Additional benefits of Cone Beam Imaging include faster scan times and greater affordability when compared with traditional x-ray scans.

Due to the enhanced detail shown with Cone Beam Imaging, Drs. Saunders and Dickson are able to clearly analyze dental structures and their orientation before beginning dental implant procedures. By revealing the location of nerves and other critical dental structures, Cone Beam Imaging technology helps minimize pain and guide periodontal professionals throughout the entire tooth replacement procedure. This advanced technology is often used to treat and diagnose periodontal disease, plan the placement of dental implants and detect tumors and oral infections during their early stages.

Patients who have missing teeth due to accident, disease or genetics are encouraged to consider dental implants in Harrisonburg, VA. Implants can not only restore dental comfort and beauty, but they can also prevent the jawbone from deteriorating. Patients can schedule an appointment to receive tooth replacement with the assistance of Cone Beam Imaging technology by calling the periodontal offices of Drs. Saunders and Dickson.
