Looking deeper into root canal problems

Being able to examine dental root canals in three dimensions is a great asset in the fight to preserve natural teeth. This is the job of the CBCT Scanner (Cone Beam CT). The ability to look at the roots of a tooth and the surrounding structures in three planes rather than one improves diagnosis and treatment planning. Problems that are hidden on conventional x-ray views become immediately apparent with CBCT technology.

The Practice has available at close hand a CBCT Scanner facility. This is one of very few scanners of its type available for dental clinical applications. The Morita Accuitomo CBCT Scanner that we use can x-ray a small volume (4 cubic centimeters) of the jaw and produce slice images in three planes.
