Patients can view their CBCT scan along with their dentist, allowing them to better understand their diagnosis, treatment plan, and expected outcome - all in our office. Patients no longer have to leave the office and visit a radiology center to have a CBCT scan obtained.
The technology's 3-D, volumetric imaging system provides a complete view of all oral and maxillofacial structures, giving the most thorough diagnostic information possible. Our dentists can more accurately diagnose and predictably treat patients than with conventional two-dimensional imaging. Every aspect of the facial skeleton can be evaluated with distortion-free images reconstructed from true volumetric data, which is gathered by an advanced digital sensor. Measurements are all one-to-one, with no magnification error which is very important to predictable outcomes of different dental procedures.
3-D cone beam imaging technology has applications for every dental speciality including:
Temporomandibular joint studies
