Installing an implant requires thorough preparation. The operation is preceded by the collection and analysis of data on the state of health of the patient, the anatomical features of his oral cavity. The doctor assesses the results of the best CT scan in Delhi, a detailed image of the bones and soft tissues of the maxillofacial region obtained by computed tomography. Based on complex data, it is possible to make a prediction of implant implantation.
The method of computed tomography of the jaw is actively used in implantology. It is necessary if the panoramic picture does not give a complete picture of the features of the bones and tissues that the implantologist will deal with. The X-ray emitter rotates along the path of the helix; it can scan bone tissue, temporomandibular joint, dental roots - depending on the nature of the doctor's prescription.
A cone beam Tomograph creates a digital model of the patient’s maxillary system in 3-D format. Thus, the features of the teeth, the thickness, density and structure of the jaw bone tissue, the position of the maxillary sinuses are determined with precision. The specialist models the implantable implant calculates its inclination and the position of the jaw. The whole procedure of integrating the artificial root depends on the quality of the examination.
Also, with the help of CT, the state of filling materials in the teeth, roots, dentin, pulp, and nerve tissue is assessed. During the examination, it is possible to identify the formations at an early stage and begin their treatment.
Key advantages of using CT scanner in dentistry:
A copy of the picture is saved to external media or printed. The patient will also be able to see how his teeth will look after correcting the problem.
The method of 3D tomography is used in medical dentistry. Using a snapshot, the specialist determines the treatment method and the Osseo integration scheme. A special program allows you to test the result of implantation and eliminate complications.
How is CT performed?
A computer and a scanning device are integral parts of a dental 3D tomography. The scanner is provided with X-rays. There are two types of equipment:
The scanner is in the shape of a cylinder, in which the patient lies.
A special unit for dental offices. It has a rotating part and support for the patient's head.
Both types of scanners at CT scan Centersare programmed to take up to six images per second. All data is transferred to the computer for processing. Special software reproduces on the screen a model of the scanned area. The 3D image consists of several layers. Pictures are displayed on the monitor screen. The specialist analyzes the three layers of the scanned area: frontal, diametrical, vertical.
For security reasons and to obtain a high-quality snapshot, the client needs to perform a number of actions:
- Get rid of metal objects (remove earrings, chains, etc., jewelry);
- Wear a radiation protective apron;
- Sit down or lie down, fixing the head on the support;
- Do not move while scanning the jaw, forming a 3D image.
- If there is a need to introduce a contrast agent, the patient should not eat and drink 4 hours before the session.
