What is Digital 3D x-ray?

CBCT scanners are instrumental in generating intricate 3D images that play a pivotal role in the precise planning of implant placement. These scans yield a comprehensive array of highly detailed images, akin to X-rays, meticulously capturing the structural intricacies of your mouth and jaw.

CBCT scanners deploy a comprehensive array of X-ray beams, meticulously sourced from varying angles to assemble a diverse set of images illuminating the intricate landscape of the mouth and jaw. As these beams traverse the body, their energy levels are meticulously quantified to discern the density of bone and soft tissue. These precise measurements are then handed over to a sophisticated computer, where an intricate analysis transmutes the data into intricate 3D representations of the jaw.


A conventional X-ray falls short in measuring the full spectrum of bone characteristics, including depth, thickness, and density. In contrast, 3D CBCT scans provide comprehensive insights, encompassing these parameters along with the proximity of bone to nerve canals and sinus cavities. The wealth of this information is meticulously presented to your dentist in a 3D format.

Employing a 3D dental CBCT scan, coupled with a thorough examination of images from various angles, equips your dentist with the precision needed for meticulous dental implant placement planning. Additionally, it serves as a pivotal tool for assessing your suitability for dental implants, offering a detailed portrayal of bone depth, width, density, and the overall health of your jawbone.

The CBCT scan itself is a brief procedure, usually completed in under a minute, and your appointment is expected to last around 10 minutes. Prior to the scan, minimal preparation is necessary, with patients only required to remove potential interference sources such as jewelry, glasses, hairpins, or hearing aids. In some cases, if you wear dentures, they may need to be removed during the procedure.

It's important to note that CBCT scans are non-invasive and completely painless. Although they involve slightly more radiation than standard X-rays, the radiation dose remains significantly lower than that of conventional CT scans. This minimal radiation exposure poses no significant long-term risk. However, your dentist may advise against a CBCT scan if you are pregnant.

The most important benefits of Digital 3D x-ray (CBCT)

As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.

CBCT scans performed before undergoing dental implant procedures offer a spectrum of vital advantages:

• Enhanced Diagnostic Precision: CBCT scans serve as a powerful diagnostic tool, ensuring that implant treatment is executed with the utmost accuracy.

• Precision in Implant Placement: Your dentist utilizes CBCT scans to meticulously plan the precise placement of your dental implants, minimizing any margin for error.

• Tailored Treatment Assessment: These scans accurately assess whether additional support treatments, such as bone grafts or sinus lifts, are required to optimize implant success.

• Customized Implant Solutions: CBCT scans aid in determining the most suitable type of implant treatment to cater to your unique needs.

• In-Depth Knowledge: Through the scan, your dentist acquires comprehensive information about the depth, width, and density of your jawbone ridge, thus gaining a comprehensive understanding of your oral condition.

• Structural Awareness: CBCT scans reveal the precise locations of structures like nerve canals and sinuses, enabling your dentist to take proactive measures to minimize potential risks throughout the procedure.

The benefits for dentists

• The scanner generates remarkably precise and intricate images, proving invaluable in the early detection and diagnosis of oral health issues and structural irregularities.

• These scanned images serve a dual purpose by enabling ongoing monitoring of treatment effectiveness and enhancing the meticulous planning of therapeutic interventions.

• Furthermore, CBCT scans substantially elevate the precision of dental procedures, mitigating the potential for errors. These detailed images empower dentists to assess the procedural risks comprehensively, offering enhanced safety in the decision-making process.
