Dental CT Scan "CBCT"
Dental 3D CT (CBCT) imaging is a highly accurate 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, and treatment planning of dental implant surgery- including computer guided dental surgery. 3D images enable a level of anatomical accuracy and predictability to patient care not possible with older 2-D technologies.
It is used for the measurement of bone volume (height and width of the bone) as well as identifying any vital structures (nerves, and sinus location). Using a CBCT is the Gold Standard for dental implant surgery. Getting or planning a dental implant without this diagnostic 3D x ray is considered BELOW the standard of care. (Image 1)
