CBCT cone beam imaging is built around the basic concept of the traditional computed tomography (CT) scan. Like all CT scans, CBCT cone beam imaging generates in-depth 3D images. These 3D images offer more detail than those from regular digital x-rays. For example, digital x-rays are unable to create single-scan views of the nerve paths, soft tissue, and bone. With CBCT cone beam imaging, doctors can see all the dental structures, as well as the ways that they relate to each other.
The process to obtain CBCT cone beam images is fast and non-invasive. A vast majority of patients have a good experience using the CBCT cone beam imaging technology thanks to its speed and consumer-centric design. The CBCT imaging equipment works by revolving around the patient, whose head rests comfortably in a stabilized position. The CBCT scan gets detailed and comprehensive 3D images of the patients mouth, teeth, jaw, throat, neck, ears, and nose. These quality images let Dr. Grier have a more complete and detailed examination of the patients mouth so a more detailed procedure can be planned.
In terms of the dental procedures this advanced equipment can be used to plan for, the CBCT cone beam imaging can be utilized in a wide range of dental treatments. One of the most common treatments this technology is used to plan for is for dental implants. Whether patients are in need of single implants, multiple dental implants, implant-supported dentures, and full mouth dental implants, the CBCT scan can be used to plan a more comfortable and exact treatment process.
Even patients with compromised bone density may be able to avoid the need for bone grafting procedures if the CBCT cone beam images reveal appropriately strong locations for implantation. In addition to CBCT cone beam imaging, Grinview Smiles offers a variety of other technological tools to support patients seeking restorative, cosmetic, and dental dentistry diagnoses and treatments.
