Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT

Cone Beam Computed Tomography or CBCT works like a reguar CT, but captures the entire head at once rather than in slices. Orthodontists and oral surgeons are easy choices to take advantage of this because of its ability to visualize soft tissue and bone structures for implants.

However, general dentists can’t allow this technology to go without their attention. Modern philosophy dictates that restorative treatment plan drives the placement of implants. All the systems allow viewing of the scan with diagnostic software and even placement of virtual implants in the patient.
