Precision Diagnostics with Cone Beam CT Scans
At Wellesley Oral Surgery & Implant Center, we employ Cone Beam CT (CBCT) Scan technology to provide high-resolution 3D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. This advanced imaging technique is crucial for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning in various dental procedures.
What is a Cone Beam CT Scan?
A Cone Beam CT Scan is a special type of X-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial X-rays are not sufficient. It offers a more comprehensive view of your dental anatomy from different angles, providing critical information that cannot be obtained from a standard X-ray.
How We Utilize Cone Beam CT Scans
CBCT scans are instrumental in planning dental implant placement, evaluating jaw problems, and diagnosing diseases of the jaw, bony structures of the face, nasal cavity, and sinuses. They are also used in orthodontic planning and to evaluate the results of corrective jaw surgery.
Benefits of Cone Beam CT Scans in Dentistry
- Detailed Imaging: Provides clear, precise 3D images for accurate diagnosis.
- Non-Invasive: A quick and painless process that does not require any physical preparation.
- Lower Radiation Exposure: Emits less radiation compared to traditional CT scans.
- Improved Treatment Planning: Enhances the ability to plan and execute dental procedures effectively.
