Using CBCT In Our Work
As practitioners work to meet the growing demand for implants, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an essential tool for treatment planning and post-procedure monitoring. By providing highly accurate 3-D images of the patient's anatomy from a single, low-radiation scan, CBCT technology delivers a comprehensive understanding of the patient's jaw and the anatomical structures necessary to properly provide treatment.
To ensure a successful implant placement, one must take into account the patient's prosthetic needs, functional requirements, and anatomical constraints. During the assessments, 3-D imaging contributes to a greater success rate due to its ability to visualize previously undetectable anatomic variability and pathology.
Simply put, CBCT-generated images provide detailed information that 2-D radiographs cannot offer. This greatly aids in precision, which improves the entire implant process.
