Cone Beam CT
The centro odontoiatrico Dentalnarco is equipped with a Cone Beam CT device. It exploits a cutting edge technology capable to provide bone and dental tissues tridimensional images of a much greater quality than traditional CT scans with a radiation dose up to ten times smaller than the one applied with the traditional Dentalscan CT.
The latter is still the most used technology in hospitals and radiology centers but, in our opinion, there is no more sense in applying it, and we regard it as an outdated diagnosis methodology in dentistry and maxillo-facial surgery.
A Cone Beam CT is indicated when a “difficult” inferior wisdom tooth has to be extracted, and before performing any implant placement or bone regeneration procedure.
