3D Cone Beam xRay

The Cone Beam 3D CT is a modern diagnostic method that allows you to reproduce sections (tomography) and / or to generate a three-dimensional image of the skull (or some of its areas) using a digital sensor and processed by a computer.

The Cone Beam (3D) is essential for planning an implant surgery, even for a single implant, because it indicates with maximum precision the thickness of the bone and the proximity of anatomical structures that must not be touched at all, such as the inferior alveolar nerve or the superior maxillary sinus.

In fact, it has often happened to me in my career to see patients who had undergone implant surgery without first having a CT scan (3D) and had suffered permanent sensitivity damage to the lower lip or worse to the tongue because with the implant it had been touched or cutted a nerve.

It is therefore always necessary to do a Cone beam X-ray before an implant surgery, because not doing it can lead to permanent damage, caused by incorrect diagnosis.
In fact, in addition to the height of the bone with the Cone beam, the thickness of the bone can be seen very well, which is essential for the long-term success of titanium implants.

The major cause of failures is the exposure of the implant threads outside the bone because they have been placed in conditions of thin bone. If we do the Cone Beam (3D) and we see that the bone is thin, we can intervene first by doing a pre-implant surgery, such as the split-crest, or bone crest augmentation, etc. In this case we will be able to guarantee the implants even in conditions of poor bone.
I therefore believe that for any implant surgery it is essential to have a programming made with the Cone Beam (3D).
