CBCT has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry. CBCT scanners are now finding many uses in dentistry, such as in the fields of oral surgery, endodontics and orthodontics.

The CBCT scanner rotates around the patient’s head, obtaining up to nearly 600 distinct images. The scanning software collects the data and reconstructs it, producing what is termed a digital volume composed of three-dimensional voxels of anatomical data that can then be manipulated and visualized with specialized software.
