As a part of Dr. Roberto Sauma´s mission to keep CosDent, Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic, up to date with the newest technologies and providing more practical and expedite services to our patients we are proud to have our very own X-Ray Computed Tomography CT Scan machine.
Since Dr. Sauma makes sure to follow the right protocols and standards worldwide we always make sure that an implant is a good option for the patient requesting it, and the only way to confirm this is with a CT Scan of the patient´s jaws.
It consists in taking a 3D x ray of the desired sections by taking images from different angles to produce cross-sectional images, kind of like a virtual slices of your mouth bones. This will be the essential tool for placement your implants, making it more predictable and safe.
It not only constitutes an advantage for Dr. Sauma and our dentists in having this essential resource in our own facilities, but also for patients as they don´t need to visit external sites.
CBCT 3D Scanning
In CosDent, Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic, we offer our patients the latest state-of-the-science technology three-dimensional high-resolution images: the CS 8100 3D. This device is a type of scanner that uses safe, low-radiation x-rays to help your dentist see every part of your teeth and jaws from any angle with an amazing level of accuracy and detail.
With its high-quality images, the CS 8100 3D improves diagnostics and treatment capabilities by giving a more accurate view of patients’ anatomy. An added bonus?
Through the use of CBCT, it has become easier to discover previously undiagnosed issues.
With the right technology, doctors can easily discover the root cause of patients’ issues.
What is a Dental Cone Beam CT?
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray machine used in situations where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient.
This type of CT scanner uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning.
With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images, also called views. CT scans and cone beam CT both produce high-quality images.
Cone beam CT provides detailed images of the bone and is performed to evaluate diseases of the jaw, dentition, bony structures of the face, nasal cavity and sinuses.
