Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging

Dental cone beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning of orthodontic issues. It is also useful for more complex cases that involve:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Dental implant sites
  • Jaw and bone deformities/misalignments
  • TMJ disorders
  • Facial trauma
  • Tumors and cysts
  • Oral cancer

Benefits of Cone Beam Dental Imaging

  • The focused x-ray beam reduces scatter radiation, resulting in better image quality.
  • A single scan produces a wide variety of views and angles that can be manipulated to provide a more complete evaluation.
  • Cone beam CT scans provide more information than conventional dental x-rays, allowing for more precise treatment planning.
  • CT scanning is painless, noninvasive and accurate.
  • X-rays used in CT scans should have no immediate side effects.
