Extraoral imaging allows the dentist to see an entire picture of the inside of the patients mouth. Panoramic and 3D imaging aid in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluation of certain dental conditions.
Dental systems utilizing Varex flat panel detectors have the advantage of producing highly detailed images for a more accurate diagnosis. Our high speed and high sensitivity flat panel 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 also offers dental cone beam computed tomography, also known as CBCT. Dental CBCT systems allows manufacturers to optimize their system to provide fast images while reducing radiation dose to patients. CBCT provides 3D information and images versus a 2D image provided by conventional X-ray images. 3D imaging can be especially helpful with the diagnosis, treatment planning, and evaluation of certain dental conditions.
