Dental 3D Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (Dental CT-Scan):
When a two-dimensional assessment is not sufficient, Dental CT-Scan helps to obtain cross-sectional and volumetric images of the anatomy of the area to be x-rayed. With 3D imaging, patients are exposed to less radiation and treatment plans can be more accurate.
For whom is Dental 3D Cone-Beam Computed Tomography suitable?
Dental 3D Cone-Beam Computed Tomography is a highly reliable method for diagnosing a variety of dental conditions and creating a detailed treatment plan. For example:
When formulating a proper treatment plan for dental implant patients,
Diagnosing cysts and tumors in the jawbone,
For patients with traumatic injuries where a jawbone fracture is suspected,
In identifying damage to the teeth and jawbone caused by infection,
For patients who need dental bone grafting or who have received or will receive dental implants,
For root canals that cannot be located using classic root canal treatment methods,
For patients who need surgical guidance, for planning prosthetic materials,
For imaging wisdom teeth prior to surgical removal and determining the proximity of the tooth to the nerve,
Determining the proximity of teeth to anatomical sites and sinuses prior to extraction,
Dental 3D Cone-Beam Computed Tomography is applied to people who have temporomandibular joint disorders.
