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.
