Advancing Technology

Integrated technology to now have views of bone density, nerves and CBCT is accurate and cost-effective with a low radiation dose. Usually these scans are taken with the patient upright (rather than supine in a conventional CT scanner) – this preserves the natural position of the teeth as well as being reassuring for anxious or claustrophobic patients. Most CBCT scanners can limit the field of view and thus the radiation exposure. Small volume scans continue this idea, and some scanners can image a single tooth.

Feature 1

Dental CT scans provide clear three dimensional views of the jawbone and supporting structures, greatly aiding in the formulation of an accurate implants treatment. The clear images provide important information about the patient’s anatomy, which will be used to properly plan how the implant treatment will proceed successfully. Traditional X-rays only show a two dimensional aspect of the jawbone, and the images can be distorted so the information may not be treated as completely accurate.
