3D - CBCT Scan
Delivering the Latest Technology
Mahimaa Dental Care is the first private Dental Care in COIMBATORE to provide the CBCT x-
rays. The CBCT or Cone Beam CT is a medical imaging technique which makes a 3D
representation of the tooth, bone, ligaments, and sinuses, etc. With this type of x-ray, we can see
the head and neck in remarkable detail, from many different planes of view. The traditional 2-
dimensional x-rays have limitations on the accuracy of diagnosis. Our PLANMECA PROMAX
CBCT is environmentally friendly and offers ultra-low dose radiation which minimizes
unnecessary radiation exposure to patients.
With the CBCT machine, we are able to better assess different angles of your mouth as well as the surrounding areas that can be affected by whatever treatment you choose. The CBCT allows us to see areas of concern that don’t show up on traditional x-rays. The CBCT is also useful to assess impacted teeth, Dental implant placement, review Dental pathology, trauma, assess the TMJ joint, and evaluate the airway to treat obstructive sleep apnea. For Dental Implants: We are better able to visualize the bones in your jaw so that when placing implants, we can make fewer incisions. We are able to have a more accurate placement of the implants, as well as to better determine the quality of the bone prior to placing. For Tooth Infections: The CBCT can more easily diagnose infections of teeth that may require a root canal, and help us see additional canals that the 2-dimensional x-ray cannot see, which can mean a better prognosis for root canal treatment.
