CT Scan, 3-D Computer Imaging Technicques
CBCT abbreviated as Cone Beam Computed Tomography is one of the proven technologies for dental medicine. The technology helps in taking 3D digital images of hard bone tissues in teeth and jaws. A cone shaped X-ray beam rotates around the head of the patient to develop a 3D digital image of the dentition. The technology is vastly used in dentistry in recent times because the time taken is much less and the images help in coming up with an effective treatment plan. CBCT can be very helpful when performing dental implant surgeries, orthodontic treatment and other oral surgeries. The complex technology has several advantages and it truly is a boon to the field of dentistry.
