Orthophos XG 3D Cone Bean CT Technology

Cone beam computed tomography (or CBCT, also referred to as C-arm CT, or cone beam volume CT) is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography. The X-rays are divergent, forming a cone.

CBCT has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry, among other things. Because of the increased access to such technology, CBCT scanners are now proving to be very useful in dentistry, especially in the fields of endodontics and implantology.

More security with 3D in
Implantology e.g., recognizing high risk cases and own limitations before performing a surgical procedure, performing implants with minimal invasion, assessing the prosthetic and surgical conditions at the same time
Endodontics e.g. recognizing the finest structures when detecting root fractures and traumas to the dentoalveolar complex, depicting internal and external root resorption, preoperative diagnostics in the case of periapical osseous lesions, preoperative endodontic planning
Oral and maxillofacial surgery e.g., displaced teeth, fracture diagnostics, sinus diagnostics, cysts, retained roots, orthognathic surgical procedures
Orthodontics e.g., displaced, impacted teeth, cephalometric analysis, root resorptions, and cleft lips, jaws and palates
