Dental CT Scan Peterborough ON
Cone beam computed tomography or CB-CT, also referred to as Dental CT Scan is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography used by dentists and oral specialists who want three-dimensional images to assist with complicated procedures. CB-CT has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry and other surgical procedures. A dental cone beam scan offers invaluable information when it comes to the assessment and planning of surgical implants. Perhaps because of the increased access to such technology, CB-CT scanners are now finding many uses in dentistry, such as in the fields of endodontics (root canals) and orthodontics, as well. During dental imaging, the CB-CT scanner rotates around the patient’s head, obtaining up to nearly 600 distinct images.

As a 3D imaging, CB-CT offers an undistorted view of the dentition that can be used to accurately visualize both erupted and non-erupted teeth, tooth root orientation and pathologies (cancers or cysts) that conventional 2D radiography can not.
Dental CT has variety of applications:
- treatment planning of orthodontic issues.
- surgical planning for impacted teeth.
- diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
- accurate placement of dental implants.
- evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity.
- detecting, measuring and treating jaw tumors.
- determining bone structure and tooth orientation.
- locating the origin of pain or pathology.
- cephalometric analysis.
- reconstructive surgery.
