What does the 3D Cone Beam CT do?
The Cone Beam CT takes digital 3D x-rays. The 3D images are full of valuable information for such things as placing implants, treating root canals, finding sources of discomfort and other problems. Integrated CBCT is an important tool for proper patient positioning.
During dental/orthodontic imaging, the CBCT scanner rotates around the patient's head, obtaining up to nearly 600 distinct images. The scanning software collects the data and reconstructs it, so it can then be manipulated and visualized with specialized software. CBCT has been described as the gold standard for imaging the oral and maxillofacial area.
We are proud to offer this great new technology to our patients at Bay Dental Care.
