Latest Improvement in Dental Implants

The technology used in replacing or repairing damaged teeth with dental implants has taken a leap forward with the arrival of cone beam computed tomography or CBCT. Unlike X-rays, which produce a two-dimensional image, CBCT uses a coned light source and returns an image in 3D which is of tremendous benefit to a dentist. 

The 3D image can help a dentist determine the:

  • Precise measurements required
  • Exact thickness of implants
  • Optimal angle of insertion

Using CBCT, the dentist will have precise measurements of implants — which ensures not just a perfect fit but considerably reduces the risks of rejection due to poorly fitting implants. Read more on this topic at
