Advanced Technology At Westgrove Dental Care
Updated: May 16
A CBCT, or Cone Beam Computed Tomography, is a specialized type of medical imaging technology used in dentistry available at Westgrove Dental Care It is similar to traditional CT scans, but it produces 3D images of the patient's mouth, teeth, and jawbone with a lower radiation dose. The imaging technology allows for detailed visualization of the oral and maxillofacial regions in three dimensions, allowing for improved diagnosis, planning, and treatment of dental problems. CBCT imaging is particularly useful in dental implant surgery, orthodontic treatment planning, and root canal treatment and allows us to offer safe and effective specialty procedures to our patients.
The benefits of using CBCT in a dental practice are numerous. One of the most significant advantages is improved accuracy in diagnosis and treatment planning. By providing a detailed three-dimensional view of the oral structures, CBCT allows dentists to identify and evaluate dental conditions that may have been missed with traditional 2D x-rays. This improved accuracy can lead to better outcomes for patients, as dentists are better able to plan and execute treatments.
Ultimately, the use of CBCT and other advanced technology in dental care can save time and money for both patients. By reducing the need for multiple imaging procedures and appointments, it can help streamline the diagnostic and treatment process. This, in turn, can lead to faster and more efficient treatment for patients. Overall, CBCT is a valuable tool for dental practices, allowing them to provide their patients with more accurate, efficient, and effective care.
