Dental CBCT Imaging Systems

Dental CBCT Imaging Systems are used to produce 3D imaging that is useful for visualising important information concerning the mouth and surrounding areas such as the bone width, sinuses and nasal cavity. 

Cone Beam Computed Tomography entered the field of dentistry in the late 1990's, resulting in a step-change in the way dentist's can view their patient's mouth's and are rapidly become a integral part of every modern, growing dental practice.

CBCT units allow users to visualise high accuracy 3D and 2D images of a patients anatomy in a single exam. Comes with adjustable fields of view which allows users to acquire large full arch images as well as small 4x4 areas of interest. Paired with powerful software tools and algorithms that help reduce image artefacts by scattered radiation, CBCTs deliver quality diagnosable images while observing ALARP guidelines for safe patient exposure.

A few key benefits of having a 3D OPG in your practice include detailed surgical and implant planning for the desired treatment. For practices looking to grow their dental implant business especially, an in-house CBCT scanner should be considered an essential. A unique selling point for modern CBCT Scanners is the exposure to radiation. The low dose technology now available means exposure is minimal, so practices will not have to worry about exposing their patients to radiation. In fact, the reason or the need to take a 2D image has almost diminished, as for a similar radiation dose you can get a 3D scan with greater detail.

This page will assess some of the different models and help you to narrow down your search and find the most suitable option for you and your practice.
