General Information for Doctors

These images have extraordinary detail which can be used to diagnose and develop a treatment plan for your patients at a level that a normal 2D scan would not allow. Below is listed some branches of dentistry and highlights of using our images.

Planning


KC Cone Beam makes it easy to get the quality images you need to diagnose and develop a treatment plan for your patients.

Ease


You have the option to recieve your patient's scans via USB, CD, or Email. These scans are in the industry-standard DICOM data format along with Carestream viewing software.

Orthodontics


  • Analyze skeletal symmetry
  • Assess alveolar ridge shape and volume limitations
  • Assess temporomandibular joints and occlusion
  • Plan placement of temporary anchorage devices
  • Plan orthognathic surgical treatment
  • Evaluate ectopic and impacted teeth
  • Assess growth
  • Design custom appliances and image-guided treatment

Endodontics


  • Better images for better diagnoses
  • Extraordinary detail at low exposure levels
  • Diagnose endodontic pathosis
  • Assess canal morphology
  • Assess pathosis of non-endodontic origin
  • Evaluate root fractures and trauma
  • Analyze external and internal root resorption and invasive cervical resorption
  • Plan surgeries and implants

Implantology


  • Better images for better planning
  • 3D images accurately portray the patient’s anatomy
  • Evaluate bone quantity and quality
  • Identify, localize, and annotate anatomical obstacles (mandibular canal, sinus)
  • Take precise measurements using true 1:1 ratio
  • Plan implants using specialized 3D software
  • Improve case acceptance
  • Collaborate with referrals

Oral Surgery


  • Better images for better preparation
  • Plan treatments more thoroughly than before
  • Identify relationships between impacted teeth and vital anatomical structures to protect teeth and vital
  • anatomical structures
  • Visualize cysts and periapical lesions
  • Define surgical protocol for impacted tooth extractions, cyst removal, or periapical lesion treatments
  • Increase case acceptance rates by allowing patients to visualize and fully understand your treatment plan
  • Improve referral relationships by sharing critical 2D and 3D data with referring dentists

Periodontics


  • Better images for better success
  • The details you need when you need them
  • Evaluate bone anatomy and proximity to pertinent anatomical areas for implant placement and case planning
  • Analyze furcation involvements and intrabony defect patterns
  • Diagnose the extent and significance of tooth and alveolar fractures
  • Evaluate bone loss patterns in periodontitis and associated regenerative potential of defect morphology
  • Evaluate pre- and post- operative bone grafting sites
  • Evaluate the patency of the ostium before sinus bone grafting surgery is performed
  • Identify exact location of vital structures such as the mandibular nerve and nasopalatine canal

KC Cone Beam is dedicated to working with doctors and patients alike to provide the best service possible.
