3D Imaging and CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)


Cone beam computed tomography is an innovative medical imaging technique that provides Endodontists with three-dimensional views of the patient. In certain cases, CBCT greatly enhances the Endodontist's ability to diagnose, evaluate, treat and care for patients.

During a CBCT scan, the machine rotates around the patient, capturing images using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These images are then used to construct a 3-D representation of the patient's teeth, oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw and neck), and ears, nose and throat.
