The Most Advanced Dental Imaging Technology

The success of any dental treatment depends not only on the expertise of the dental practitioner and the cooperation of the patient, but also on the technology being used.

Speaking about the latest in technology, 3D imaging has become quite a critical tool for modern dental practices over the years. It allows practitioners to see important information that can’t be detected using traditional 2D imaging systems alone.

Malligai Dental Chennai recognizes the need for enhanced treatments and patient experience and thus offers the Carestream CS 9300 CBCT – the latest in 3D dental imaging for improved diagnoses, better communication between dentists and patients and more efficient treatment planning.

Why use CBCT scan ? What sets it apart from other imaging systems ?

The CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) gives a very detailed 3-dimensional image in contrast to conventional x-rays which only give a 2-dimensional image. The 3D image makes the understanding of the patient’s problem much better improving the quality of care dental practitioners can provide.

Should the amount of X-ray and Radiation worry me ?

No, the CBCT that we have gives the smallest amount of radiation of any CBCT machines; it corresponds roughly to two panoramic x-rays or the amount of background radiation you get if you do a roundtrip flight from Paris to Tokyo – and think about it, pilots are up there every day.
