Dental systems using our flat panel digital dental detectors have the advantage of producing highly detailed images for accurate medical diagnoses. Due to the high speed and high sensitivity of our detectors, we also offer dental CBCT system manufacturers an attractive option which optimizes their system to reduce radiation dose to patients. Dental CBCT systems are increasingly used by radiologists and dental professionals for various clinical applications including:
- Dental implant planning
- Visualization of abnormal teeth
- Evaluation of the jaws and face
- Cleft palate assessment, diagnosis of dental caries (cavities)
- Endodontic (root canal) diagnosis
- Diagnosis of dental trauma
Dental CBCT provides a fast, non-invasive way of answering a number of clinical questions. These systems produce images that provide three-dimensional (3D) information, rather than the two-dimensional (2D) information provided by a conventional X-ray image. This may help with the diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluation of certain conditions.
Although the radiation doses from dental CBCT exams are generally lower than other CT exams, dental CBCT exams typically deliver more radiation than conventional dental X-ray exams.
