Dental cone-beam computed tomography, or CBCT, uses x-rays when standard dental or facial x-rays are insufficient. It’s a type of CT scanner that produces 3D dental images, including soft tissues and nerve pathways, as well as craniofacial bones. It creates detailed images for more accurate and precise treatment.
This isn’t the same as standard CT scanning, but CBCTs do produce similar images to CTs. CBCTs send a conical x-ray beam through the patient, creating a large selection of images or views. The result is an extremely clear image perfect for dental work.
