Posted on: September 16, 2018

Looking for more information on how today’s dentists use CBCT technology? With all of the advances that are taking place in the area of dentistry, it is easier than ever to go to the dentist and get all the treatment you need for your good dental health. There are not only more options, but the majority of these options can also provide you with fast dental procedures. And many people are looking to choose dental treatments that are fast nowadays, mostly because they are busy and do not have a lot of time.

New dental technologies

CBCT technology allows dentists access to the images and scans they need to provide their patients with the proper care much more quickly as they no longer have to outsource. The convenience of not having to outsource is going to save both the dentist and the patient a lot of time.

How CBCT technology is used

The following is a list of some of the more common reasons why a dental professional would choose to use CBCT technology in their dental office. The list will continue to grow as new dental applications are always being made.

One way is to provide an airway analysis for those who have received an obstructive sleep apnea diagnosis. When this technology is used, a dentist can identify a patient’s risk for their airway becoming obstructed. They are also able to see clear images of the airway due to the three-dimensional images that this technology provides.

It can also be used to provide orthodontists with scans that allow them to see the thickness of a patient’s bone, their skeletal growth patterns, and impacted teeth, which will enable them to apply the orthodontic methods that will work for that particular patient.

  • To provide dental professionals with scans and images that will help them better prepare for more complicated dental implant procedures.
  • To provide endodontists with images that can help them detect the early onset of periapical disease.
  • To provide dental professionals with images so they can diagnose and treat periodontitis.
