Are you looking to refer a patient to our dental specialist?
One of the latest pieces of equipment we have in our office is a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) machine. This advanced X-ray machine captures multiple pictures of a patient’s teeth, bone, soft tissue, and nerve pathways and pieces these pictures together to form a clear and detailed 3D image. This type of scan is ideal for times when a regular dental X-ray can’t provide a satisfactory view of the area.
CBCT scans also offer a number of benefits to the patient. It’s painless, noninvasive, and provides several views and angles for a more complete evaluation. Some of the common uses for a CBCT scan include creating a plan for computer-guided implant surgery, diagnosing airway sleep disorders, putting together a plan for surgically fixing impacted teeth, and creating a plan for reconstructive surgery.
Along with offering exceptional care to patients, we’re also committed to helping future and current dentists learn the skills they need to properly perform a variety of dental care procedures. This is why Dr. Chris Lee is a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia, which is consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world. Additionally, Dr. Lee teaches implants at BITES Institute, which is one of the leading continuing education facilities in Canada.
