Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of your dental structures, images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning.
Dental cone beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning of complex cases that involve accurate placement of dental implants, surgical planning and removal of teeth, locating pathology, wisdom teeth extractions, amongst many other things.
