Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) technology in dentistry is rapidly changing the diagnostic landscape, allowing dentists to now diagnose in three dimensions.
With this technology, implants and crowns can be placed with more ease and accuracy. Impacted, hidden or missing teeth can be precisely located and ‘hopeless teeth’ can be saved by discovering untreated nerve canals. This power of perception can also help to identify bone and gum disease.
The use of CBCT makes taking diagnostic dental impressions an unnecessary, cumbersome task of the past. This minimizes the patient’s in-office work-up time, discomfort of dental impressions and the overall time it takes to formulate an accurate treatment plan.
