Upper Cervical OC
Recently our Carson Blair Upper Cervical office purchased a 3-D cone beam cat scan (CBCT). CBCT is a technology that was developed by the dental profession to better image the jaw structure for implants. Before CBCT 3-D analysis was not possible for the small private dental practices. Implants were done with digital 2-D technology. Oftentimes implants would not anchor into the bone correctly because of the lack of 3-D imaging.

Observe the articulation of C2-C3. The joint of c-2 has moved forward(arrow) along the c-3 joint below. This image allows the Doctor to measure exactly how the joint is built(angle) and direct a force in the opposite direction of the misalignment to correct it.
This view shows the third cervical joint moving backward (arrow) on the fourth cervical joint. Again, clearly identifying how the joints have misaligned allows the doctor to precisely correct it. Maximizing results for the patient.
This image clearly shows that the c-1 (atlas-arrow) has misaligned to the right and upwards along the joint of the skull above.
