Dental Cone Beam Imaging
Dental cone beam imaging is among the fastest growing dental technologies. Also called cone beam 3D imaging or cone beam computer tomography (CBCT), these imaging systems are capable of creating detailed 3D digital models of a patient’s anatomy. Cone beam imaging is becoming a standard of care for dental implant treatment planning, and the 3D imaging technology also is useful for orthodontics, endodontics and a range of other clinical imaging needs.
Our 3D CBCT software allows us to assess bone levels and place implants in virtual reality. This allows us to know which size and shape of implant to place and exactly where to place it before we ever start the surgery. Doing so can help us to avoid costly grafting procedures in some circumstances.
