Dr. Peter Warshawsky, Dr. Eric Driver, and Dr. Caitlyn Affrunti use Carestream® cone beam computed tomography to capture highly accurate images of your facial and oral structure, enabling us to plan more precise treatments to meet your needs, and tailor each treatment specifically to you. Contact Periodontics of the Desert at 760-674-4410 to schedule your appointment with our doctors and learn more about cone beam technology in Palm Desert, California.
Cone beam imaging provides a significantly more comprehensive view of your orofacial structures than digital X-rays. This advanced dental technology provides our periodontists with professional, high-quality images that reconstruct your teeth, mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose, and throat. These images give our doctors and team a much more comprehensive understanding of your oral health, and allow us to view each specific area when planning your treatments. This, in turn, enables us to tailor your treatment exactly to your needs, and perform your treatments and procedures with great precision.
Cone beam imaging is most frequently utilized to:
- Plan the placement of dental implants
- Evaluate the jaws and face
- View the head and neck comprehensively
- Diagnose tooth decay and other problems
- Detect endodontic problems and plan treatments (root canal therapy)
- Analyze dental and facial trauma
- Plan and evaluate the progress of orthodontic treatment
- Visualize abnormal teeth
- Assess a TMJ dysfunction
