What is a Dental CT Scan Used For?by Monticello Dental on 01/20/18
A dental computed tomography (CT) scan is used to capture 3-D images of teeth, bone, nerves, and other soft tissue. The CT scan allows for more views and angles of the mouth than a traditional 2-D image, which then allows for more accurate treatment planning. Our office uses the CT machine for dental implant placement, determining bone structure, viewing the orientation of teeth, and for other procedures as needed.
If you have a question about our dental CT machine, or you would like to schedule an appointment, call us today at our O'Fallon MO dental office at 636-300-4280.
