CT imaging of the dentition is presently the most precise method used in planning dental procedures. Because it gives a virtual image, doctors use it to plan procedures in great detail. Such well planned procedures are safe and less invasive.
At Elektoralna Dental Clinic we are equipped with the NewTom 5G XL which is the latest 3D computed tomography machine. The patient is placed in a comfortable supine position and scanned in the axial plane. This is to ensure comfort and prevent motion artefacts. An electric chair allows quick and easy positioning of the patient.
Instead of using standard pantomographs, we obtain a 3D image of the teeth and sinuses in 3 minutes. In the cross-section images it is possible to detect caries, inaccurate root canal treatment and all forms of inflammation. On the basis of these images we can calculate the right length and angle at which to screw implants and this reduces the risk or rejection to 1%.
