A Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan is a specialized X-ray system capable of delivering high-resolution three-dimensional images of the oral structures. The CT scanning process is fast and effective, and images can be viewed on a computer screen instantly. This information is used to make improved diagnostic and procedural planning decisions. Moreover, CT scans emit a low amount of radiation compared to the conventional methods. At Aesthetic Dentistry in San Diego, California, we use advanced technology to deliver safe and comfortable treatments for our patients.
There are multiple uses of CT scans in dentistry, including:
CT scans are quick and straightforward to perform. The patient will have to sit or stand in a designated position during the scan. The cone beams can capture hundreds of images in a single rotation. These images are used to gather an exact 3D image of the internal structures of the mouth. Our dentists can pinpoint the specific areas and view them from different angles. This will help us to accurately diagnose and plan the treatments accordingly. The CT scans are an incredible tool that helps reduce the cost of dental treatment, decrease treatment time, and enhance the results of dental surgery.
