Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)

CBCT, or Cone Beam Computed Tomography, is a medical imaging technique that uses X-rays to create three-dimensional images of dental structures, soft tissues, and bone in the craniofacial region. CBCT is particularly valuable in dentistry for its ability to provide detailed and high-quality images with lower radiation exposure compared to traditional CT scans.

Applications in Dentistry:

  • Dental Implant Planning: CBCT allows for precise evaluation of bone density, quality, and anatomical structures to plan implant placement.
  • Orthodontics: Assessment of tooth and jaw relationships, identification of impactions, and evaluation of airway dimensions for orthodontic treatment planning.
  • Endodontics: Visualization of root canal anatomy, identification of root fractures, and assessment of periapical lesions.
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: Evaluation of impacted teeth, assessment of jaw pathologies, and planning for surgical procedures.
  • Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Imaging: Detailed visualization of the TMJ and surrounding structures to assess disorders and plan treatments.

CBCT has significantly enhanced diagnostic capabilities in dentistry, allowing for more accurate treatment planning and improved patient outcomes. Dentists and specialists use CBCT selectively, considering factors such as the specific diagnostic requirements and the radiation dose implications for each patient.
