CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. It’s a type of dental imaging technology that allows us to create 3D images of your teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures. This is a significant advancement in dental imaging, as traditional x-rays can only provide us with 2D images.
Our CBCT scanner uses a cone-shaped beam of x-rays to capture images of your teeth and jaw from different angles. These images are then reconstructed into a 3D model using advanced computer software. This technology allows us to see a detailed, three-dimensional view of your teeth, jawbone, sinuses, and other structures.
Some of the benefits of using our CBCT scanner include:
- More accurate diagnosis: Our CBCT scanner provides us with a comprehensive view of your dental and oral structures, allowing us to make a more accurate diagnosis. This is particularly useful in identifying complex dental problems such as impacted teeth, jaw tumors, and other conditions.
- Improved treatment planning: The detailed images provided by our CBCT scanner allow us to create a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. This results in more precise treatment and better outcomes.
- Reduced radiation exposure: Our CBCT scanner uses a lower dose of radiation compared to traditional CT scanners, making it a safer option for patients.
- Enhanced patient education: Our CBCT scanner allows us to show you a detailed, 3D image of your dental structures, making it easier for you to understand your dental health and treatment options.
At our practice, we’re committed to providing our patients with the latest in dental technology. Our CBCT scanner is just one of the many ways we’re able to provide you with the most accurate and comprehensive dental care possible.
