Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) allows dentists to treat patients more effectively.
- It offers three dimensional images
- The images are more accurate and of better quality
- It scans both bones and tissues
- It offers a lower dose of radiation
- It’s quick noninvasive and painless
- It moves around the patient’s head to record hundreds of x-ray views in less than a minute.
With this technology, the dentists moves from diagnosis to planning treatment simulations.
How can it be used:
- For implant planning
- For implant post-operative assessment
- For endodontic treatment
- Impactions and extractions
- Inferior alveolar nerve location
- Odontogenic lesion location
- Pathological characterization
- Sinus location
- Surgical guide construction
- Trauma evaluation
