As a result of three dimensional planning with dental volumetric tomography before the placement of dental implants; both complications that may arise in the future can be avoided and the aesthetic expectations of the patients can be responded appropriately.
Until recently, only panoramic radiographs have been used for implant planning, but now with improved technology, Dental Volumetric Tomography is also an important part of implant planning. The three-dimensional visualization of the vertical and horizontal amounts of the bone to which the implant is to be implanted allows the physician to start the operation with safer information and thus reduce the unwanted complications that may occur in implant operations.
According to a medical tomography ; the x-raying take place with less radiation up to 1/6 ratio . The amount of radiation given is only 0.5 to 1.5 panoramic x-rays .Image quality and resolution are too high .
You can view unexposed areas with panoramic and periapical x-rays . You can take coronal, axial, sagittal (cross section) sections from the image and make detailed diagnosis .
You can get high resolution data for implant planning and surgical guide preparation . You can make pre-treatment planning such as soft tissue detection, bone density measurement, mandibular canal distance measurement .
You can make postoperative checks such as after treatment, after prosthesis and after implantation .You can make determinations like impacted tooth, fissures , abnormal number of channels, cyst diffusion .
