                              What Are the Benefits of CBCT                                                            Technology?

You’re on the fence about CBCT technology and you want to get as much information as possible before making a purchase. Learning the benefits of CBCT technology is a big part of your research. In fact, once you learn the benefits, you will likely be a big step closer to acquiring CBCT technology for your practice.
                                                                     Less Radiation
Radiation is a concern whenever X-raying patients. While staff members take precautions, it is still a good idea to limit patients’ exposure to X-ray beams whenever possible. CBCT technology limits the radiation dose by only scanning the required area. At the same time, most units can also scan entire regions if necessary, so practices have options at their disposal. This gives them the freedom to get the scans they need while limiting their patients’ exposure to radiation whenever possible.
                                                    Ability to Perform New Procedures
The image accuracy of the 3-D scans gives dental professionals the ability to perform procedures they would not be able to perform with standard 2-D technology. They can get the guidance they need while performing complex implants and other procedures, allowing them to increase their practices’ revenue streams a great deal.
                                                             Unique Display Modes
CBCT technology includes unique display modes that the provider can interact with, giving him or her insight into the patient’s needs. Task-specific modes include chair-sided image display, MPR, and real-time analysis. These modes allow for real-time dimensional assessment, which is something that’s not available with other types of technology. Users simply need software and a personal computer to take advantage of these unique display modes. Once the software is installed, they will be able to get much more out of the CBCT technology.
                                                                     Fast Scans
You don’t want to spend a lot of time scanning your patients. They have to stay still, so you want to get them in and out as quickly as possible. That limits the motion artifacts during the scan. It only takes 10 to 70 seconds to complete a CBCT scan. It’s able to do this by getting all of the basis images in one rotation instead of requiring multiple rotations. Because of this, you will have fewer, if any, motion artifacts in your images. In addition, there are artifact suppression algorithms in place. These algorithms further reduce the chance of image artifacts popping up in the scans. The result is more usable images. When you have more usable images, it’s much easier to do your job. You have everything you need to move forward with the procedure without having to worry about filling in the blanks. With all of the benefits of CBCT technology, it’s easy to see why so many dental professionals have added units to their practices. From seeing more patients to getting better scans, these units make it easier for practices to make money and serve their patients in the best way possible. Those benefits give dental professionals staying power in the dental industry.
