Cone Beam - National Dental Care

A cone beam radiograph is a type of x-ray beam which captures an image by rotating around a patient’s head. The data can be used to produce a three-dimensional image of the patient’s mouth, jaws, neck, teeth, ears, nose and throat. It is a non-invasive way of contributing helpfully to treatment planning, diagnosis and post-surgery evaluations. These images are very useful when planning implant placement, as they allow the dentist to visualise where the best bone is, so the implant is placed most securely.
