X-ray Options: Cone Beam Computed Tomography
At Balaci Oral and Facial Surgery, it is extremely important that each and every patient receives an accurate diagnosis. At our office in Lebanon, PA, we are proud to offer cone beam 3D CT scanning technology to ensure that all patients receive the most sophisticated diagnostic imaging available in an outpatient surgical office. The use of this imaging technology allows Dr. Balaci and our surgical staff to provide highly accurate diagnoses to our patients and develop the best plan of action to treat their oral and maxillofacial problems. An accurate diagnosis also allows Dr. Balaci to ensure optimal clinical results and recovery following the procedure.
One benefit of a cone beam 3D CT scan is that it provides our surgical staff additional information that cannot be obtained through conventional methods, such as X-rays, and helps to identify the best surgical procedure for the problem at hand. This expert imaging helps to eliminate surprises during treatment, prevent unnecessary procedures, and better prepare our staff for the upcoming surgery. As a result, this generally provides patients with a shorter operating time and fewer post-surgical complications.
If you have not already received a 3D CT scan prior to your initial consultation, you may receive one during your first visit to our office.
