Cone Beam CT Scan evaluates and analyzes anatomy of the jaw bone for oral surgery, implants or pathologies.
It gives precise, cross-sectional slices of any desired location in the upper or lower jaw which provides dentist with exact anatomical information, including dimensions and locations for the particular case.
Additionally, it also has a function of taking panoramic dental X-ray (OPG) which creates a single image of the entire mouth: the upper and lower jaws, their temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, all the teeth, the nasal area and sinuses.
CBCT provides extraordinary detail at low exposure levels and assists dentist in:
- Shows an accurate, true-to-life scale anatomy of the patient.
- Takes precise measurements of the bone and nerves for implant placement.
- Identifies anatomical obstacles, such as mandibular canal or sinuses or a quality of bone.
- Helps to identify the suitable implant size so that surgical traumas are avoided.
- Precisely examines root anatomy (curvature, length, number of roots)
- Enhances early diagnosis of endodontic lesions.
- Identifies anatomical elements in region of interest.
- Helps to investigate inadequate root canal filling or to locate separated instrument.
- Identifies relation between impacted teeth and organs to protect.
- Visualizes cysts and periapical lesions.
- Defines surgical protocol for impacted teeth extraction, cyst removal or periapical lesion treatment.
