Dental imaging has helped dentists get a full picture of their patient’s teeth for the past three decades. Cone Beam Imaging, a 3D capture of your teeth with minimal radiation exposure, is the latest advancement in dental x-rays. At Southington Dentistry, we pride ourselves on offering the best service possible, and our cone beam scanner is the next step in providing state-of-the-art care.


Digital Imaging




















How does cone beam imaging work?


Cone beam technology is a type of computed scan that is similar to x-ray technology, except that it provides a more comprehensive view of your oral health. Unlike traditional x-rays, Dr. Salesky is able to scan your entire mouth, capturing multiple images. These images are then compiled and instantly computed into a 3D model, which reveals the big picture on your oral health.


The true claim-to-fame of cone beam imaging is that these 3D images can help us understand and diagnose dental problems that were previously undetectable. This modern technology produces a clear image that can be enlarged and manipulated, which takes away any guesswork.


When is cone beam imagined used?


The versatility of cone beam technology makes it useful for many dental procedures:

  • Planning reconstructive surgery.
  • Precision placement of dental implants.
  • Analyzing misaligned teeth or bone structure.
  • Diagnosing oral pain or injury.
  • Identifying jaw disorders related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)

What are the benefits of cone beam imaging?


  • Better image quality than traditional x-rays.
  • Produces a more comprehensive evaluation and no need for reshoots.
  • Quick scans – the entire process takes less than a minute!
  • Allows for a more precise treatment plan.
  • Radiation exposure is minimal.
  • No immediate side effects from the procedure.
  • Images capture both bone and soft tissue instantaneously.
