Get A Fast And Accurate Diagnosis With CBCT

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has changed how our dentists at Skyview Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Aurora, ON, diagnose and treat various oral health issues. This imaging technology provides detailed 3D images of the teeth, jawbone, nerve pathways, and soft tissues, offering a comprehensive view that surpasses traditional X-rays.

How does CBCT work?

Unlike conventional X-rays, which produce flat, 2D images, CBCT utilizes a cone-shaped beam to capture multiple views from different angles around the patient's head. These images are then reconstructed into a high-resolution 3D model using specialized software. This allows us to visualize anatomical structures with clarity and precision.

How is CBCT used?

CBCT is used in various dental procedures, including implant planning, orthodontic treatment, endodontic therapy, and oral surgery. It provides vital information about bone density, tooth orientation, nerve location, and potential pathology, enabling us to develop precise treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs. For example, CBCT scans are invaluable in assessing the suitability of dental implants by evaluating bone volume and quality, thus ensuring optimal implant placement for long-term success.

What are the benefits of CBCT?

CBCT can capture detailed 3D images, reducing the need for invasive procedures and exploratory surgery and improving patient comfort and safety. Additionally, CBCT scans facilitate more accurate diagnoses, enabling us to detect abnormalities early and intervene promptly, ultimately improving treatment outcomes and patient prognosis. CBCT enhances communication between dental specialists and allows for interdisciplinary collaboration, leading to more comprehensive and integrated patient care. CBCT scans expose patients to significantly lower radiation doses compared to traditional medical CT scans, making them a safer option for repeated imaging, especially for pregnant, pediatric, and medically compromised patients.
