By | December 27, 2010

Radiation effects the children and adolescents. Using X ray film, which requires the higher radiations, in dental treatments can create problems. Therefore, using dental CT scans is the best method to reduce the usage of radiations in dental treatments.

Especially, cone-beam CT scanners, which provide the brilliant 3D images of the teeth, roots, jaws and more. Using this technology, is a safe way for orthodontists and oral surgeons to identify the problems. They help the dentists to deal with the complex cases involving implants, impacted teeth and other problems related to the teeth. Clear images of the bones and blood vessels are provided by the CT imaging of the head along with providing the images of soft tissues. If you compare this with X ray angiography, which provides a picture of the blood vessels in the head, but it fails to provide the picture of soft tissues.

Thus, this cone beaming scanning is also used for different treatments along with dental treatments.
