INDICATIONS: Dental CT is an imaging technique which provides images and data to assess your teeth and jaw prior to dental procedures. Dental CT produces high resolution scans with a low radiation exposure and allows dentists or doctors to accurately diagnose and treat dental conditions. It is used to plan dental implants, assess dental pathology, assess the TMJ’s and plan dental treatment for conditions of the mandible, maxilla and maxillofacial complex.
