Our Latest Technology Working for You! Eggert Family Dentistry Adds CBCT

By: Dr. Elizabeth Eggert

At Eggert Family Dentistry in North Oaks, MN, we’re excited to announce a groundbreaking addition to our practice: Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) technology. This state-of-the-art equipment revolutionizes the way we diagnose and treat dental conditions, offering unparalleled insights into patients’ oral health. With the recent installation of the Carestream CS 9600 CBCT, we’re poised to enhance our ability to evaluate infections, assess the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and analyze the airway with unprecedented clarity and precision.

CBCT technology represents a significant advancement in dental imaging, providing detailed 3D images of the teeth, jawbone, nerve canals, bone levels, and surrounding structures. Unlike traditional dental X-rays, which offer a two-dimensional view, CBCT scans offer a comprehensive and detailed three-dimensional (3D) perspective, enabling us to identify issues that may not be visible through conventional imaging methods.


What Sets CBCT Apart?

One of the key features of the Carestream CS 9600 CBCT is its high image resolution, which allows for superior visualization of anatomical structures with minimal distortion. This level of clarity is invaluable in diagnosing complex dental conditions and planning precise treatment strategies tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

With this advanced technology at our disposal, we’re better equipped to evaluate and diagnose a wide range of dental issues, including infections, impacted teeth, jaw abnormalities, and even sinus problems. Additionally, the CBCT scan provides valuable insights into the TMJ, helping us identify signs of dysfunction and develop targeted treatment plans to alleviate discomfort and restore proper function.

As part of our commitment to providing exceptional care, we’re pleased to offer CBCT scans to all patients undergoing our Records Process in 2024 at no additional charge (a $435 value!). By integrating CBCT technology into our practice, we aim to elevate the standard of care and ensure that each patient receives the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment possible.

CBCT technology has been evolving for many years. We are lucky to now be able to share this with you and continue our commitment to being “State of the Art.” The introduction of Cone Beam CT technology represents a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to enhance patient care and outcomes at Eggert Family Dentistry. With the Carestream CS 9600 CBCT, we’re able to leverage cutting-edge imaging capabilities to deliver personalized, precision-driven dental care that prioritizes patient comfort, safety, and overall well-being. We look forward to utilizing this advanced technology to transform smiles and improve lives in our community. If you want to experience all that has to offer, ask Dr. Jeff Eggert or Dr. Elizabeth Eggert at your next recare appointment. Or, if you’ve been putting off undergoing the Records Process, here is your chance to really learn all that you can about your oral health. Call us today at 651-482-8412!
