Why should dentists use Cone Beam imaging
Who manufactures this technology?
In this video....Dr Dale Miles discusses clinical applications and advantages of CBCT.
More and more dentists are using X-ray Cone Beam Computed Tomography scanners for patient imaging and diagnostics as a new and vital part of their practices. The result is advanced, state-of-the-art volumetric images that increase the quality and accuracy of radiographic dental care. When using CBCT imaging, clinicians have the most accurate anatomic information to plan the placement of dental implants in optimal sites by using technologically advanced digital imaging devices.
The addition of CBCT to an oral health professional’s practice presents with it a significant change in the diagnosis and treatment of dental and maxillofacial areas. The 3-D information obtained from a CBCT exam offers the potential of enhanced diagnosis for a wide range of clinical applications, typically at a lower dose than medical multislice CT.
In addition, dental CBCT scans can be collimated to the desired area, further lowering a patient’s exposure to radiation.
