Cone Beam 3D CT Scan

FMS - an everlasting commitment to a healthy smile.

Cone Beam 3D CT Scan

CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) is a low dose scanning system, which has been specifically designed to produce three-dimensional images of the maxillofacial skeleton and help in alleviating the cumbersomeness of various conventional procedures in clinical dentistry.

CBCT has revolutionized Implant dentistry, Endodontics, Orthodontics and Oral surgery

FMS possess one of the best CBCT scans in the world, CARESTREAM CS 9300 at KOTI and JUBILEE HILLS facilities.

CONE BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY-The Technology

CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) scanners use back-projection reconstructed tomography to acquire data of the area of interest through a single or partial rotation of the conical X-ray beam and reciprocal image receptor. Remarkably, in CARESTREAM CS 9300, the scan time is < 20 seconds. A principle difference between regular CT and CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) is the method by which data is gathered – while CT acquires image data using rows of detectors, CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) exposes the whole section of the patient over one detector. CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) scanners use, more compact and less expensive solutions than CT scanners, but produce comparable, or better images of the hard tissue structures of the jaws and skull.

Ultimate precision in Dental Implants with CBCT Scan

Before the placement of the implant, it is vital to understand the patient prosthetic needs, functional requirements and various constraints. Carestream CS 9300 delivers a 3D imaging system which allows the practitioner to visualize undetectable anatomic variations and pathologies.

CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) technology enables to provide fine variations in bone density, supporting the practitioners to predict future patient condition, ascertain the surgical procedure and life span of restorative treatment. The demand for implant is escalating; nevertheless, CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) is an essential tool for treatment planning and post procedure evaluation.

Conventional clinical techniques have many hindrances in evaluation of the surrounding bone and soft tissue before placement of the implant. CBCT (CARESTREAM CS 9300) technology solves this problem by measuring relative bone density around the dental implant abutment and natural teeth and meticulously assesses the periodontal or peri-implant status. In general, the exact measurements of the bone density are difficult to determine using conventional procedures. To alleviate the uncertainty, the CBCT technology provides inform information with less distortion than 2D images, and are more accurate in showing bone height and width while defining the shape of bone contour.

It minimizes the chance of damaging the nerve of the lower jaw by accurately locating the position of it before placement of the implant. In the upper jaw, the 3D images provides better picture of the maxillary sinus and surrounding structures for the placement of implant.

THE CBCT CONVENIENCE AT FMS – COMMON INDICATIONS

– Assessment of the jaws for placement of Dental implants

– In Orthodontics, it is used for 3D cephalometry, examination of teeth and facial structures for Orthodontic treatment planning.

Temporomandibular Joint imaging

– Preoperative assessment of Impacted teeth and evaluation of the proximity of the lower Wisdom teeth to the mandibular nerve before extraction

– Assessment of teeth for Root fracture or periapical disease

– Evaluation of bone for signs of infections, cysts, or tumors.

– Assessment of bony and dental pathologic conditions, including fracture and structural maxillofacial deformity.
