The Dental CT gives today’s orthodontists the tools to improve diagnosis and treatment planning by providing the multiple projection perspective necessary to accurately assess tooth relationships and further support the objective interpretation of anatomy. More accurate information can result in less invasive surgery if extracting the tooth and better designs to align the tooth if moving it. Understand exact tooth position and relationship of abnormal anatomy.
- The focused x-ray beam reduces scatter radiation, resulting in better image quality.
- A single scan produces a wide variety of views and angles that can be manipulated to provide a more complete evaluation.
- Cone beam CT scans provide more information that conventional dental x-ray, allowing for more precise treatment planning.
- CT scanning is painless, noninvasive and accurate.
- A major advantage of CT is its ability to image bone and soft tissue at the same time.
- No radiation remains in a patient’s body after a CT examination.
- X-rays used in CT scans should have no immediate side effects.
