Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Cone beam computed tomography otherwise known as CBCT is a modern day X-ray machine. When regular dental X-rays are not enough, this revolutionary technology will produce amazing 3D images of your teeth, facial bones, nerve pathways and sinuses. All of this in a low dose, single scan.

Clinical Applications

When it comes to dental implants, a CBCT is one of the most useful devices around. The scan produced from the machine is in 3D. It is a true image of your mouth and facial structures. This allows your dentist to identify your facial nerves, sinuses and bone. The result — more accuracy and safety for you when having dental implants.

The CBCT is touted for accuracy and can be used in orthodontics as well. It visually determines the status of non-erupted teeth, tooth root orientation and any other structures, all in 3D.

Similarly, in endodontics, the CBCT has also found its place. The scan, again, accurately identifies the presence of periapical lesions, root canal morphology and the surrounding bone.

The CBCT has also become an essential part in planning more complicated and complex cases.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography


Cone Beam Computed Tomography is a newer technological advancement in dentistry. Consequently, it largely expands the diagnostic and treatment possibilities for patients.

When it comes to dental implants, Maryland Periodontics and Dental Implants has already advanced forward. It’s now a part of our standard protocol. A 3D scan is used to evaluate each individual case, precisely plan the case and create implant guides to accurately place all of our implants. So now for the best part, all of this is done in-house!

In the future, this will be the standard protocol for all procedures requiring implant placement.

Remember, Maryland Periodontics and Dental Implants strives for increased accuracy and safety for all our patients.
