Dr. Nick adds 3D computerized dental imaging, or Cone Beam Technology (CBCT) to the practice. This technology allows him to see problems and pathology that cannot be gleaned from even the finest, 2D digital dental x-rays, allows for micron-accurate placement of dental implants, and even meshes with his CADCAM technology. Very amazing stuff!
