CBCT – Computed Tomography

CBCT computed tomography is a volumetric tomography of the cone beam. This method is now commonly used in dentistry as an element of diagnostic imaging. It is a perfect complement to intraoral and pantomographic X-rays. Computed tomography ( CBCT) is the process of translating a scan of flat images into a three-dimensional image.

Indications for the procedure

CBCT is most often performed in difficult surgical cases: in implantology, endodontics, orthodontics and orthognathics (jaw) surgery. 3D diagnostics allow us to visualize the internal anatomy of the oral cavity, which is impossible to obtain with any other radiological examination. This is extremely important in the precise planning of treatments and procedures. With the help of CBCT, your doctor can also assess the potential risks associated with your treatment plan. The precision provided by computed tomography allows for a detailed analysis of the course of nerve structures, blood vessels, tooth roots and the position of the lateral sinuses, the location of which is different in each patient.

Advantages of CBCT

One of the most important advantages of using the 3D method is undoubtedly the ability to obtain an image of soft tissues and bone structures in a single image. The examination is completely non-invasive and avoids the need for reconnaissance operations. In addition, it is conducive to making precise assessments of advanced pathological processes, such as cancer. Often, the data obtained thanks to computed tomography allow for making accurate diagnosis and the use of treatment methods even at an advanced stage of the disease.

Computed tomography is a much more cost-effective examination for the patient. The data that can be obtained with this method often show more than would be seen from a few radiographs. One CBCT test replaces dental, panoramic, cephalometric and temporomandibular joint X-rays. Proper processing of data obtained by means of computed tomography provides the doctor with more information than all these images combined.

CBCT is currently considered to be the most modern tool for radiological diagnostics of dentition. It allows an accurate diagnosis, which is essential for effective dental and orthodontic treatment.

Dental X-Rays

An X-ray is a radiological examination of the teeth. It is performed in order to visualize the bone tissue of the mandible and maxilla. With the help of an X-ray, the doctor is able to assess the condition of the temporomandibular joint and determine the appearance of the bones of the entire facial skull along with individual teeth and surrounding bone tissues. An X-ray, like a simple X-ray of the teeth, allows us to assess the condition of the patient’s teeth in a completely painless way. The procedure is completely safe.

Indications for X-Ray

X-ray is used relatively often in all branches of dentistry. The main reason is that it allows you to see exactly what is going on in the patient’s mouth from the inside. With the help of an X-ray, the doctor can check whether there is, for example, tooth decay, foreign bodies, pathological changes at the roots, whether roots have been left in the oral cavity, or even the presence of a cyst or cancerous lesions. White spots appearing on X-rays are the best evidence of tooth decay. X-rays are taken before each planned tooth extraction, endodontic treatment or denture fitment. They are also recommended in the case of craniofacial injuries.

Types of X-Ray

There are several types of X-rays:

  • Pantomographic X-ray. It can indicate possible carious lesions, supernumerary or impacted teeth, the so-called wisdom teeth, any developmental changes, as well as suspicion of cancer. The pantomographic examination is carried out in a sitting position. It is the machine that rotates around the patient’s head, capturing the image needed.
  • A spot X-ray – it covers only up to 4 teeth, making it the most detailed. It is most often performed before root canal treatment, but also to assess fillings and implants.
  • A cephalogram – this type of image is taken before orthodontic treatment. A cephalogram allows you to assess the patient’s malocclusion and introduce an appropriate treatment process. In addition, it allows you to obtain an image not only of the teeth themselves, but also of the surrounding soft tissues of the face and hard palate.

Before taking dental X-rays, a technician will place a lead rubber apron over your chest. He or she may also wrap a thyroid collar around your neck – this is commonly done for children and people with thyroid problems, to protect the thyroid gland. This helps protect you from excess radiation. The examination can be done either sitting or lying down, depending on whether an intraoral or extraoral X-ray is performed.

Pantomographic images

Pantomographic image in dentistry is called a craniofacial X-ray or panoramic X-ray. This type of examination is used in dentistry as well as maxillofacial surgery. The purpose is to obtain an accurate image of the craniofacial layers, which presents not only the teeth, but also the surrounding tissues and bones. A panoramic X-ray allows for precise planning of further stages of treatment and early detection of diseases requiring advanced treatment, like for example cancer.

Indications for panoramic X-ray
  • Planned tooth extraction. X-ray allows you to determine the exact shape of the tooth and its relation to the adjacent teeth.
  • Dental and periodontal diseases like tooth decay, which is often difficult to detect by an intraoral examination itself.
  • Planned orthodontic treatment – it allows for an accurate determination of malocclusion.
  • Implantation surgery – to show the anatomical conditions of the jaw, bones, sinuses and nerves.
Are dental X-rays safe?

The radiation risk from a dental X-ray is quite small. In fact, the amount of radiation you get from a full set of dental X-rays is comparable to the amount of radiation you absorb every day from your tv, computer, smartphone, building materials such as ceramic floor tiles and background radiation from the sun, stars and Earth.

However, in extremely large doses, dental X-rays can be harmful and may even increase your cancer risk. That’s why you should only have them when it’s necessary. Your dentist will be able to advise you on this.

Preparing for an X-Ray

Having an X-ray doesn’t require any special preparation. You should just remember to clean your teeth before your appointment, and to remove all metal parts from your body – like earrings, neck chains, bracelets or rings. The procedure is completely painless and only takes a few minutes. You will be either sitting down or standing up, with a lead vest across your chest. A special apparatus will rotate around your head, and the photo will appear on the monitor screen. During this time, you should remain completely still. Some dental practices have a separate room for X-Rays, while in others the images are taken in the same treatment room.


X-Rays should not be performed on pregnant women, as it can be harmful to the fetus. Therefore, if you are pregnant or if you think you may be pregnant, should always inform your doctor before the procedure.
