3D Cone Beam (CBCT)

What is 3D Cone Beam CT (CBCT)?

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), also known as Cone Beam 3D CT, is a cutting-edge imaging technique that revolutionizes dental and maxillofacial diagnosis. Unlike traditional X-rays that provide two-dimensional images, CBCT generates high-resolution three-dimensional (3D) scans, offering a complete view of oral and maxillofacial structures. This 3D visualization allows dentists to examine teeth, bones, nerves and soft tissues from all angles with exceptional precision, facilitating the detection of a wide range of dental and maxillofacial conditions.

The CBCT scan experience

The CBCT scan reveals a hidden world in your smile. This innovative technology provides a detailed 3D map of the jaw, teeth and surrounding structures. The process itself is designed to be convenient and efficient. You will be seated in a specialized chair and positioned comfortably inside the CBCT machine. The machine will then gently rotate around your head, capturing a series of rapid X-ray images. Within minutes, these images are transformed into a complete 3D model by specialized software. Your dentist will then meticulously analyze this model, gaining valuable information to guide your personalized treatment plan.

What is 3D Cone Beam CT used for?

Applications of CBCT span various dental specialties. It helps in orthodontics by studying the positioning of the teeth and surrounding structures. Endodontics uses CBCT for pre- and post-treatment evaluation of root canals. Dental implantology uses it for both pre-surgical planning and post-surgical evaluation. Additionally, CBCT is useful in sinus surgery, evaluation of TMJ, diagnosis of facial abnormalities, and identification of bone pathology.
