CBCT – Cone Beam Computed Tomography
Our device GENDEX CB 500 belongs to the best in its category. Besides 3D imaging, we can also make classical panoramic images, all at minimal burden on the patient.
CBCT imaging X-ray examination captures the selected tissue volume in all planes and thus allowing for a spatial overview and detailed diagnostic information.
This three-dimensional image can be viewed in sections of various thickness under virtually any angle, or in the form of semi-transparent 3D visualizations.
CBCT has a wide range of uses in most of the areas of modern dentistry.
CBCT examination provides accurate information about the quantity and quality of the bone, the course of the mandibular canal, the shape of the jaw cavity and other risky anatomical structures. Examinations allows accurate measurement of bone supply and quality. This allows the dentist to choose the ideal size of the dental implant and the direction of its insertion so that he can safely avoid all the risk structures. If the dentist gets more information, the intervention itself becomes faster, simpler and safer.
CBCT image allows detailed view of the course of the individual root canals, anatomy, as well as the pathology of the root environment. CBCT examination prior to the endodontic treatment can objectively increase the success of this often very demanding treatment. The main advantage of CBCT examination is the accurate diagnosis of anatomical and pathological deviations of the roots and its surroundings.
Extraction of wisdom teeth
Uncut or partially cut teeth are often placed close to risky anatomical structures such as the mandibular canal, the jaw cavity or the adjacent tooth. CBCT allows easier planning and safer orientation of the surgeon during the surgery. This greatly reduces the risk of complications.
CBCT examination provides a spatial image of the alveolar bone condition showing the rate of the bone tissue resorption. This is a valuable help in the diagnosis, planning and management of periodontal treatment.
Precise spatial information about the mutual position of individual teeth and the condition of the alveolar bone is essential especially when deciding on therapy of the impacted teeth. The CBCT examination also gives an accurate image of the facial skeleton and an interrelationship of the jaws. All this facilitates diagnosis and makes orthodontic treatment more efficient.
The jaw joints
CBCT examination of the temporomandibular joint displays morphological changes and helps to diagnose disorders and their subsequent treatment.
Unfortunately, the price of this examination is not covered by health insurance.
