Cone Beam CT uses in treatment planning of Dental Implants:
When multiple Dental Implants are to be placed, or if the position of the Implant to be placed is extremely close to important vital structures like: a nerve, a sinus or other nearby teeth. A Cone Beam CT is very beneficial to accurately plan the treatment process. Cone Beam technology also allows implants to be placed with a completely guided approach by allowing the Implantologist to c onstruct a surgical guide to place implants in extremely difficult positions with pin-point accuracy.
