Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a special type of Radiography used when regular dental x-rays are not sufficient. We use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissue, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. (Read more…)
The difference between a traditional Medical CT scan and a Cone Beam CT scan is that the x-ray dose absorbed by the patient is substantially lower and it is less expensive.
The applications of CBCT scans are numerous:
1. Implant site assessment
2. Endodontic evaluation
3. Impacted teeth
4. Inferior alveolar nerve location
5. Odontogenic pathology
6. Orthodontic assessment
7. Sinus evaluation and airway analysis related to sinusitis, snoring and sleep apnea
8. 3D virtual implant planning and surgical guide fabrication
9. Temperomandibular Joint examination
10. Trauma evaluation
CBCT makes clinical decisions easier and more precise, therefore making treatment decisions more accurate and predictable.
