3D CONE BEAM CT SCAN
A 3D Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (3D CBCT) is an amazing, specialized type of radiography that provides more information than conventional dental or facial radiographs. This computerized scan uses a motorized arm that rotates 360-degrees around your head while capturing multiple images from different angles that are then reconstructed to generate three-dimensional (3D) images.
This allows for a more precise diagnosis and provides 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone which are considerably more detailed than conventional two-dimensional dental radiographs. CBCT scans are commonly used to evaluate the position of teeth, bone structure, jaw joints, the airway, or to aid in the accurate placement of implants, surgical planning, orthodontic evaluations, and complex root canal diagnosis. It can show us exactly which root has an infection, as well as the location of canal orifices, if it exists. It can also help us identify root resorption, internal or external, and the location of such resorption.
