CBCT 3D Scan

At the office of Dental Healing Arts, we strive to always acquire the best tools and technology for an accurate diagnosis and successful treatment. One of these pieces of technology is the CBCT 3D scan, which stands for cone beam computed tomography. It is an advanced imaging system that goes well beyond the capabilities of traditional X-rays.

What is a CBCT 3D Scan?

A CBCT 3D scan, or Cone Beam Computed Tomography 3D scan, is a specialized type of imaging technology used primarily in dentistry and maxillofacial imaging. It provides detailed, 3D images of the oral and maxillofacial region, which includes the mouth, teeth, jaws, neck and surrounding structures.

When Are the Benefits of Using CBCT 3D Scan?

  • High-Quality 3D Imaging: CBCT provides high-resolution 3D images of the oral and maxillofacial region. This level of detail allows dental professionals to accurately diagnose and plan treatments for various dental and oral conditions.
  • Precise Treatment Planning: CBCT scans offer precise anatomical information, which is crucial for treatment planning, particularly for dental implants, oral surgery and cavitation identification. Dr. Fotek can evaluate bone density, nerve locations, and other critical structures with great accuracy.
  • Minimized Radiation Exposure: CBCT machines are designed to limit radiation exposure to patients. Compared to traditional medical CT scans, CBCT delivers a significantly lower radiation dose, making it a safer option for dental imaging. Dr. Fotek chooses the image size as to minimize x-ray exposure while obtaining the necessary information
  • Improved Diagnostic Capabilities: CBCT images can reveal conditions that may not be visible in traditional 2D dental X-rays, especially those of endodontic origin (infected root canals).  
  • Efficient Workflow: CBCT scans are quick and efficient, providing immediate results. This streamlines the diagnostic and treatment planning process, allowing Dr. Fotek to make timely decisions and discuss treatment options with patients.
  • Enhanced Communication: CBCT images are easily shareable, allowing dental specialists, surgeons, and other healthcare providers to collaborate on patient care. This improves overall patient outcomes.
  • Orthodontic Applications: CBCT plays a crucial role in orthodontics, allowing orthodontists to evaluate the entire craniofacial structure. This leads to more accurate treatment planning and better outcomes for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment.
  • Endodontic Precision: For those with questions about their root canals, CBCT can help locate and visualize root canal infections, identify fractures, and assess past root canal treatments with greater precision.
  • Patient Education: CBCT images can be used to educate patients about their oral health conditions. Visualizing issues in 3D can help patients better understand their treatment options and the importance of oral care.
  • Reduced Need for Invasive Procedures: By providing detailed information about a patient's oral anatomy, CBCT can help Dr. Fotek plan and execute minimally invasive procedures such as cavitation surgery, preserving more healthy tissue and reducing patient discomfort.
  • Treatment Success: With CBCT aided treatment, Dr. Fotek can increase the chances of treatment success and reduce the risk of complications, ultimately leading to better treatment outcomes.
