Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is becoming more and more common in dental practices across the country. Highly detailed CBCT images are invaluable in the assessment of dental and skeletal structures, allowing dentists to localize and evaluate impacted teeth and TMJ. CBCT also plays a significant role in the planning of temporary anchorage devices, the fabrication of custom dentistry appliances, airway analysis, and digital model creation. This all leads to improved diagnosis, quicker examinations, improved patient communication and case acceptance. All of which comes with a lower dose of radiation than a standard Panorex, AND the scans can be reimbursed through medical insurance.Read More
