Extraoral imaging allows the dentist to see an entire picture of the inside of the patient’s mouth. Panoramic and 3D imaging aid in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluation of certain dental conditions.
Dental systems utilizing Varex Imaging X-ray detectors, including photon counting detectors, have the advantage of producing highly detailed images for a more accurate diagnosis. Our high speed and high sensitivity X-ray detectors are an attractive option for dentists and are used for imaging in:
• Periodontal bone loss or disease detection
• Extraoral exams
• Dental implant planning
• Visualization of abnormal teeth
• Evaluation of jaws and face
• Cleft palate assessment, diagnosis of dental cavities
• Endodontic diagnosis including root canals
• Diagnosis of dental trauma
Varex Imaging also offers dental cone beam computed tomography, also known as CBCT. Dental CBCT systems allow manufacturers to optimize their systems to provide fast images while reducing radiation doses to patients. In addition, CBCT provides 3D information and images versus a 2D image provided by conventional X-ray images. 3D imaging can be beneficial with the diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluation of certain dental conditions.
