Dental CT Scan

Dental CT Scan

A dental CT scan, also known as a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan, is a specialized diagnostic imaging technique used in dentistry to obtain detailed three-dimensional images of the oral and maxillofacial structures. This advanced technology provides invaluable information for accurate diagnosis, treatment planning, and the evaluation of various dental and craniofacial conditions.

Benefits of Dental CT Scan

Post-Scan Care:

Procedure Description:

Patient Positioning

The patient is comfortably seated or positioned according to the specific area of interest within the oral cavity or maxillofacial region.

CBCT Scanner

The dental CT scan machine, equipped with a cone-shaped X-ray beam and a detector, rotates around the patient's head.

Image Capture

The CBCT scanner captures multiple X-ray images from various angles, which are used to reconstruct a 3D image of the target area.

Data Processing

Specialized software processes the collected data to create detailed cross-sectional images, providing a comprehensive view of the teeth, jawbone, sinuses, nerves, and surrounding structures.

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning

The generated 3D images allow dentists and oral surgeons to assess and diagnose various conditions, such as impacted teeth, dental implant planning, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and more

Treatment Guidance

Dental CT scans are invaluable for guiding dental implant placement, oral surgeries, root canal therapy, and orthodontic treatment planning.
