3-Dimensional Imaging and Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a 3-Dimensional imaging modality providing the best possible maxillofacial imaging techniques available today.
CBCT allows us to obtain images of the skull and jawbones in a relatively short period of time (approximately 10-15 seconds). This information can then be used to evaluate you in a way that was previously only possible with expensive medical CT scans.
Perhaps the most compelling example is implantology. In order to perform a successful implant, the dental professional must While we do not obtain a CBCT on every patient, we do evaluate each patient on an individual basis to determine the benefits that may be obtained with a CBCT.
