cbct
3D cone beam imaging is a filmless digital x-ray scanner that is specially designed for scanning the area of the face and jaws. A quick comfortable open and painless scan rotates around the patient's head and gathers complete 3D and 2D information in a matter of seconds. It provides the doctor a thorough visualization of the entire maxillofacial region with less radiation than regular or flat x-rays, which may require several exposures in a variety of positions. Using a computer, your doctor can visualize extremely detailed views of the patient's anatomy from many different angles. This scan can clearly display TMJ disorders, impacted teeth, critical bone and teeth relationships, implant treatment planning, and difficult to see pathologies within one whole 3D volume.
