In addition to implant placement, a Cone Beam CT scan is an invaluable diagnostic and treatment planning tool for the oral surgeon for:
- Determine the precise three-dimensional position of a tooth within the alveolar bone and how this position relates to vital structures for extractions and impactions.
- Visualize hard and soft tissues on the computer in three dimensions for planning maxillofacial surgeries.
- Generate life-size CAD-CAM stereolithic (STL) models for surgical planning and preparation.
- Monitor skeletal changes, airway changes, and healing responses.
