At Torrance Oral Surgery Center, we continuously embrace cutting-edge technology to offer our patients the highest standard of care. One such technological advancement is the 3-D CT (Computed Tomography) Scan, specifically the Cone Beam CT, a game-changer in the field of oral surgery. Let’s delve into how this technology works and why it’s revolutionizing oral surgical procedures.

What is a 3-D CT Scan with Cone Beam Technology?

The 3-D CT Scan using Cone Beam technology is a specialized imaging method that provides clear, three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in the craniofacial region. Unlike traditional X-rays that produce two-dimensional images, the Cone Beam CT captures a comprehensive 3-D image of the dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bones in a single scan.

Advantages of 3-D CT Scans in Oral Surgery

We love giving patients the valued benefits of advanced digital imaging at our Torrance practice, which includes:

Enhanced Precision and Planning

The detailed images provided by Cone Beam CT scans allow for more precise planning of oral surgical procedures. These high-resolution images enable oral surgeons to evaluate the exact anatomy of the patient’s jaw, including the location of critical structures like nerves and sinuses. This precision is especially crucial for complex procedures like dental implants, impacted wisdom teeth removal, and corrective jaw surgery.

Improved Safety and Reduced Risk

With the detailed insights from a Cone Beam CT scan, surgeons can perform procedures with a significantly reduced risk of complications. By having a clear map of the patient’s oral anatomy, surgeons can avoid vital structures such as nerves and blood vessels, minimizing the risk of injury. This advanced planning translates to safer procedures and smoother recoveries.

Patient Education and Involvement

These scans also play a vital role in patient education. By viewing the 3-D images, patients can better understand their diagnosis and the proposed surgical plan. This visual aid facilitates a more involved and informed decision-making process, allowing patients to feel more comfortable and confident about their treatment.

Applications of Cone Beam CT in Oral Surgery

  • Dental Implant Planning: Precisely determines the optimal location for implant placement.
  • Impacted Teeth: Assesses the position and condition of impacted wisdom teeth or other teeth.
  • Jaw Surgery: Aids in planning reconstructive and corrective jaw surgeries.
  • TMJ Analysis: Offers detailed views of the temporomandibular joint for diagnosis and treatment.
  • Sinus Evaluation: Provides clear images of the sinus cavities, which is essential for procedures near these areas.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
