Cone Beam (CBCT) and 3D Imaging Systems

Make sure you have the right equipment to diagnose and treat your patients with a 3D dental X-ray imaging system from Dental Planet. Most dental offices today have upgraded to digital panoramic X-ray machines to provide faster results with less radiation exposure for their patients. This type of equipment generally focuses on 2D images, but if you want to offer certain types of dental services, you may also need the ability to capture 3D images as well. With dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), dentists are able to capture more detailed images that allow them to view teeth, bone structures and surrounding tissue from multiple angles.

Uses for 3D Cone Beam X-Ray Machines

Super-detailed digital images have been a gamechanger for the field of dentistry. These X-rays assist in enhanced diagnostics and allow dentists to confidently determine the best course of treatment for patients. The ability to capture 3D image has pushed the possibilities even further, which is why many dentists use them for a variety of issues and procedures. For example, dentists can use 3D images to better plan root canals, dental implants and extractions. CBCT imaging is also frequently utilized when diagnosing TMJ disorders, sleep apnea, sinus problems and other issues involving the mouth and jaw. 

How to Choose a 3D X-Ray System

A great solution for many dental practices is to choose a hybrid panoramic/cone beam imaging system that is capable of producing both 2D and 3D images. It’s important to make sure that whatever model you choose has software that you can easily master. The field of view for the system will also affect which types of dental applications the 3D images can be used for. Make sure the machine size fits into your office space and look for systems. To maximize your budget, look at certified pre-owned X-ray equipment which has been refurbished to look and perform like new.
