A critical tool for endodontists and clinicians, CBCT or Cone Beam Computer Tomography allows for instant and highly accurate 3D visualization of teeth. This cutting-edge equipment is used alongside X-ray imaging, as it details valuable information that digital radiographs alone cannot.
Cone beam imaging enables the dentist to create more precise treatment plans toward saving a tooth or carrying out a dental extraction. Small or large field of view CT scans include 4x4, 5x5, 8x5 and 8x8 for endodontic diagnosis and treatment planning, as well as for implant placement.
The CBCT process is non-invasive, painless, and safe for patients as it employs the lowest radiation dose necessary in order to create an image quality adequate for accurate diagnosis.
