First Dental is excited of offer one of the newest dental imaging technologies available with our cone beam CT scanner. Through the use of cone-shaped X-ray beams, our dentist is able to provide a precise, accurate, and three-dimensional portrayal of your mouth. This gives our office an advantage over the typically used types of dental imaging because our team is able to see exactly how teeth are sitting in the mouth and plan treatment based on the 3D image.
The cone beam CT scanner can assist Dr. Ryan P. Lehmkuhler in the following treatments:
- Precise and accurate placement of dental implants
- Determining bone structure and tooth orientation
- Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses and nerve canals
- Reconstructive surgeries
- Discovery and treatment of tumors
- Extraction of impacted teeth
Cone beam technology is becoming the gold standard in 3D dental imaging technologies, and we are proud to be one of the few dental offices to offer 3D dental imaging in Dodge City, Kansas. By providing the dentist with a more accurate map of your smile, we can better tailor our care and procedures to what your individual needs may be.
