Boston Dental uses the most advanced and effective state of the art dental technology to provide patients with gentle, quality care.
Cone- Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Technology
Boston Dental uses the latest 3D scanners such as the Dental Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Technology to generate 3D images of our patients’ dental structures, soft tissue, nerve paths and bone – all in a single scan. The CBCT is capable of providing accurate images by moving a cone-shaped X-ray beam around the patient to produce hundreds of high-quality images. These images enable our dentists to execute more precise treatment planning than a traditional X-ray machine.
The process is simple! Patients simply sit down, in an exam chair, and remain still for 10 – 30 seconds, depending upon how much of the mouth and dental structures are imaged. In a single rotation, the detector can generate anywhere between 150 to 200 high resolution two-dimensional (2-D) images, which are then digitally combined to form a 3-D image that provides our dentists with valuable information about patients’ oral and craniofacial health.
Digital Impressions by 3 Shape Trios Orthodontics
Boston Dental uses modern, highly accurate wireless digital impression technology – a welcomed departure from the traditional dental practice of uncomfortable trays full of impression materials that taste bad.
As part of the Boston Dental luxury experience, our dentists use an intraoral 3D wireless dental scanner to digitally capture every nook and cranny of our patients’ teeth to ensure accurate impressions and make creating high-quality restorations much quicker, reducing chair-time.
