- Improved Diagnostic Accuracy
Since CBCT machines are able to capture 3D images, it’s possible to catch problems that simply weren’t visible on a 2D scan.
By providing a more accurate overview of the mouth, CBCT machines help to provide better-informed diagnoses for patients. It can help to spot problems before they become severe issues, and also means you’re more likely to be able to find the causes of severe issues and determine how best to treat them.
The benefits for the patient can be significant.
- Reduce Nerve Damage
A CBCT scan can be used to accurately map out the patient’s sensory nerves.
Once you have this map, it is much easier to avoid any nerve damage during complex procedures such as implants. In this case, implants can be constructed to the right length to ensure that there is no impact on the nerve whilst still offering good stability.
CBCT scans can also be used to avoid implants penetrating into the sinus.
One issue many patients have with standard dental x-ray equipment is that they are forced to bite down on an uncomfortable plate in order for the X-ray to be taken.
A CBCT scan is a non-intrusive process that can scan a patient’s entire head without them needing to do a thing. This is very useful for patients who have sore teeth and gums and find biting down on a plate a very painful experience. It is also a less frightening experience for those who don’t feel comfortable with many dental procedures.
