Where Is Cone Beam CT Used?
CBCT provides invaluable support to treat many conditions in dentistry through its ability of providing fine anatomical 3-D structures.
Orthodontics: Accurate display information of teeth and jaw makes it easier to determine the exact location where teeth should be moved.
Dental Implants: The optimum location for titanium implants can be determined without affecting nerves, sinuses, and areas of low bone density by using detailed CBCT images.
Orthognathic Jaw Surgery and Temporo-Madibular Joint (TMJ) Disease: 3-D dimensional perspectives provided by CBCT benefit patients and specialists in evaluating the anatomy to better treat these conditions.
Oral Surgery: The level of detail shown by CBCT scans aid in treating tumors or impacted teeth.
Endodontics: Intricate procedures performed by dentists such as complex root canals, are aided with a clear visualization of the tooth’s anatomy.
Sleep Apnea: The diagnosis and treatment of dangerous conditions can be aided with imaging the tissues and structures of the nose, mouth, and throat.
