About Cone Beam Computed Tomography
During a dental CBCT procedure, the patient's head is stabilized with a head holder while an X-ray source and an area detector perform a 360 degree scan of the patient's head. Detectors capture a cone-shaped beam that provides data about the patient's facial bone structures. Reconstruction software then can be used to produce 3-D views of the patient's facial anatomy and provide tracing of anatomical landmarks and measurements of bone height, width, and density.
About Dental X-ray Systems
Dental X-rays are diagnostic imaging systems that capture static images of teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissue to help dentists identify problems with patients' teeth, mouths, and jaws. Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of dental X-ray; during an intraoral X-ray procedure, the X-ray film is placed inside the mouth. Extraoral X-ray images provide less detail than intraoral X-rays and are not used to detect problems with individual teeth. Instead, extraoral X-rays focus on the jaw and skull to monitor the growth and development of the jaws in relation to the teeth or bones of the face.
