Three dimensional images give Dr. Barton a state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional hospital type spiral CT scanner, Cone Beam 3D scanning systems, like the one used by Dr. Barton, utilize low radiation technology yet provide precise, crystal-clear digital images. Cone beam scanners allow us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern. Dr. Barton has the most accurate and up to date 3D scanner on the market today and he can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with you and your referring doctor. He can also use this technology to guide dental implant and other surgery, and to more accurately diagnose and treatment plan for safer surgery. This technology improves collaboration of your doctors concerning your care, improves your safety, and helps produce better treatment results.
