Dr. Kaplansky was one of the first in New York State to invest into a CBCT unit. It stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. You can think of it as a dental CAT scan. This machine produces amazingly accurate 1:1 images of teeth and jaws in 3D with a very low radiation exposure. We use it extensively for implant surgery planning, complicated extraction cases, as well as root canal treatments and orthodontics. Better imaging leads to better diagnosis and precision in planning that in turn leads to better treatment outcomes and much happier patients.
