Cone Beam CBCT System
How We Use It
Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) used at Winyah Dental Group rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. We then use this data to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the teeth, mouth, jaw, and neck.
We are then able to use the 3D images 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.
