ANN ARBOR, MI, January 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- While X-rays are still commonly used, dental advancements have created a new diagnostic tool to help aide dentists in diagnosis and treatment. At Comfort Dental, Dr. Paresh Shrimankar and Dr. Rohit Reddy utilize cone beam CT imaging for improved diagnosis and treatment of many dental problems.
"A Cone Beam CT shares some similarities with conventional X-rays and standard CT scans a patient receives in a hospital setting. However, it is a significant improvement in technology and diagnostic precision," said Dr. Paresh Shrimankar, a dentist in Ann Arbor, MI. "For us, the Cone Beam CT offers the ability to visualize intricate structures inside the mouth, such as root canals, nerves and sinuses in the jaw without surgery."
With the Cone Beam CT, patients can reduce the need for invasive procedures, shorten treatment time and offer the chance for a better outcome. The detailed diagnostic images provide Dr. Shrimankar and Dr. Reddy an improved tool in many dental procedures especially when doing implant surgery. Using a rotating imaging device that moves around the patient's head, the Cone Beam CT records between 150 and 600 different X-ray views in under a minute.
Once these images are taken, a computer will process the information to create a virtual model of the area of the patient's mouth that is under study. When this is done, the model appears on the computer as a three-dimensional image on a computer screen that can be rotated in all directions to be examined in greater detail. It can also be manipulated in a number of ways without causing the patient any discomfort-or even being present.
Through the ability to see fine anatomical structures in 3-D, Dr. Paresh Shrimankar and Dr. Rohit Reddy are able to properly diagnose and treat an array of dental conditions. Each patient's dental condition is different, which means Dr. Shrimankar and Dr. Reddy must carefully consider it before any test or procedure is performed.
With the availability of the Cone Beam CT at Comfort Dental, these Ann Arbor, MI dentists can properly diagnose and treat their patients so that their individual dental needs are always met.
