Cone Beam CT Scan
Dental Cone Beam CT scans (CBCT Scans) provide high resolution, 3D volumetric images, used in Dental Implant Planning, Orthodontics and Maxillofacial surgery. allowing for more accurate analysis of bone structure and dental/tooth orientation. The accuracy of a CBCT scan is comparable to medical CT scans but uses a much lower radiation dose but with the added advantage of greater accuracy of bone structures and dental/tooth orientation. Your patient sits in a chair, as opposed to lying in a tunnel, and the time for a dental CBCT scan is just twenty seconds.
Whereas typical dental X-rays focus on a small area to produce flat, 2D image, CBCT scan images enable a more complete and accurate 3D images – allowing you to more effectively plan patient surgical and dental treatments. Individual patient Cone Beam CT images are also digitally stored for ease of access in the future, and for sharing with colleagues or patients.
