Dental cone beam Computed Tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray used in situations where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. This type of CT scanner uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning, and is used with implantology, endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. It is also an excellent tool for diagnosing ear, maxillary sinus, and respiratory tract diseases.
