Cone Beam CT Scan

3D Cone Beam CT-Scan (CBCT) & Low Radiation Radiography

The Highest Quality, Fast Results, and the Lowest Radiation Radiography

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), also referred to as CAT scans, is a truly innovative imaging system that provides high-tech information that would otherwise go unseen. This CT-Scan is the most thorough and accurate dental and maxillofacial imaging technology that creates a high-definition and 3D digital model of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bony structures in the craniofacial region. The scanner takes a series of still images, the reshuffles them to create 3d images of the bone and soft tissues of your face and mouth. 

At Aria Dental, we have implemented high fidelity facial 3D Cone Beam CT-Scan to evaluate any ongoing disease, treatment planning, and surgical templating. With immediate access to crystal-clear images, we can diagnose, treat, and educate our patients in a faster and more effective process than ever. 3D dentistry allows us to uncover up to 30 percent more diagnoses which means healthier patients.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The 360-degree scan of your head and mouth is fast and painless. Cone beam converts a series of low-dose images into high-resolution views through sophisticated space-age 3D software for designing surgical procedures with greater precision.

THE REASONS YOUR DENTIST ORDERED YOU A FACIAL CT?

Dr. Horiyat may recommend high-resolution 3D reconstruction to detect and evaluate certain diseases and pathologies of the jaw, dentition, bony structures of the face, nasal cavity, and sinuses. 

Dr. Horiyat regularly utilizes this high-definition technology for many other reasons such as 

  • To create a surgical template for accurate placement of a dental implant.
  • To assess the bone structure and density before implant placement.
  • To locate vital structures such as sinus cavities and nerve canals that are critical to identifying for surgical planning.
  • To diagnose any pathology in the jaw

she can also use CBCT for treatment planning of orthodontics and dental implants

WHY CONE BEAM CT?

Cone beam CT-Scan can display TMJ disorders, impacted teeth, cracked teeth, hidden infections such as cavitation (jawbone) infection, critical bone and teeth relationships, oral-nasal airway, and mandibular nerve canal. The high-resolution and digitally enhanced pictures provide layers of information that can be separated to view aspects of your mouth, face, and jaws.

ADVANTAGES OF 3D CONE BEAM CT-SCAN

CBCT possessed several advantages over medical CT. 

Unlike regular medical CT-Scan, Cone beam CT types create 3D Images of your mouth while cutting the radiation exposure dramatically. The CBCT scan delivers a radiation dose that is 1/10 of a conventional medical CT-Scan.
