CBCT scanners produce 3D images which are used to help plan the precise placement of implants. The scan produces a collection of detailed images (similar to X-rays) of your mouth and jaw.
How does a CBCT scan work?
CBCT scanners send lots of X-ray beams from different angles to capture different images of the mouth and jaw. As they pass through the body, the strength of the beams are measured to determine the density of bone or tissue. A computer then uses this information to process the results and display them as detailed 3D images of the jaw.
