Cone Beam CT Scanner
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning, and treatment of various diseases. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses, and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays).
At Orbis Dental Group, we employ thePlanmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol that combines high CBCT image quality with exceptionally low patient doses. It is the world’s leading low dose imaging mode for supporting accurate diagnostics and allows clinicians to safely see more than ever before.
CBCT imaging changed dentistry in a big way at the turn of the millennium. It increased diagnostic accuracy and opened up numerous new possibilities by literally introducing a third dimension to dental radiology. Over time, patient doses have decreased considerably as CBCT imaging technology has advanced further. Special low dose protocols have also been introduced. These days, numerous CBCT unit manufacturers offer some kind of alternative for low dose imaging.
However, all options are not equal. Many manufacturers and their technology struggle to maintain diagnostically acceptable image quality at lower doses and the effectiveness of their so-called low dose options has not even been proven.
In turn, the Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol supports diagnostic accuracy that remains high even at incredibly low patient doses.
