Digital intraoral X-Ray and CBCT are important tools used by your dentist for various clinical applications including dental implant planning, evaluation of the jaws and face, endodontic diagnosis, etc.
Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These data are used to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (“ENT”).
Dental cone beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning of

issues. It is also useful for more complex cases that involve:
- surgical planning for impacted teeth.
- diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
- accurate placement of dental implants.
- evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity.
- detecting, measuring and treating jaw tumors.
- determining bone structure and tooth orientation.
- locating the origin of pain or pathology.
- cephalometric analysis.
- reconstructive surgery.
Our office uses the latest Green CT2 CBCT from VaTech America. “Green CT 2 is an advanced 4-in-1 digital x-ray imaging system that incorporates PANO, CEPH (Optional), CBCT, and MODEL Scan. It provides high-quality images with lower radiation by combining image processing and accumulated dental imaging experience from VATECH. Obtain diagnostic accuracy with increased treatment planning and patient satisfaction.”
“It was always believed that with low radiation comes inferior image quality, which renders the image useless for a clinical diagnosis. However, the Green CT 2 provides clinically diagnosable x-ray scans at a low x-ray dosage. With low dose x-ray radiography, achieving clinically diagnosable image quality is the new gold standard.”
