Cone Beam 3D Imaging

What is cone beam 3D imaging?

Cone beam 3D imaging is a state-of-the-art imaging system that provides our knowledgeable dentist with three-dimensional images of your mouth and surrounding structures. The cone beam 3D imaging system provides us with a comprehensive view of your teeth, jawbones, jaw joint, and the surrounding facial structure. While normal X-rays provide us with a two-dimensional image of your mouth, cone beam 3D imaging in McCall, Idaho, allows us to visualize your mouth and nearby structures three dimensionally.
