Dental Tomography Dental Volumetric Tomography (3D VT)

Dental tomography device is  that converts the data obtained from the jaw and teeth region into a three-dimensional image and transfers it to the digital environment. The images obtained make it easier to diagnose diseases.
Dental Tomography Dental Volumetric Tomography (3D VT) device is a new tomography device specially prepared for the head and neck region. The desired area can be seen tomographically in 3D, with the patient exposed to very little radiation.
Numerous sections are taken from axial, sagittal and coronal plans with dental tomography device. Then, these sections are sliced ​​and reconfigured through advanced software, so that the targeted area can be viewed from any angle.
In our center, i-CAT 3D dental volumetric tomography device is used. i-CAT holds the 3D and cylindrical 23 (diameter) x17 (height) cm image area and the title of the device that receives the largest 3D image.


When should I have a dental tomography (3D dental volumetric tomography 3d vt)?

It is frequently used in dental and jaw diseases, dental implant applications and jaw-facial area traumas. It provides detailed diagnosis in dental and jaw pathologies.
The most important use of dental tomography (Dental Volumetric Tomography) is dental implant applications, which are very common today.
Treatment planning before dentomaxillofacial surgery applications
Surgical template preparation for implant placement
Anatomical examination such as nasal cavity, incision channel, maxillary sinus and mandibular canal
Measuring bone quality and density
Examination of the jaw bone contours
Examination of the temporomandibular joint
Investigation of periapical region and canal fillings in canal treatments
3D analysis of the positions of the recessed teeth in the bone
Examination of pathological formations such as cyst and tumor
Examination of root fractures


What are the advantages of dental tomography (dental volumetric tomography)?

As a result of three-dimensional planning with dental volumetric tomography before placing dental implants, future complications can be prevented and the aesthetic expectations of the patients can be answered.
Until recently, while only panoramic radiographs have been used in implant planning, Dental Volumetric Tomography has gained an important place in implant planning with the developing technology. The visualization of the vertical and horizontal amounts of the bone to be implanted in three dimensions enables the physician to start the operation with safer information and thus reduce the unwanted complications that may occur in the implant operations.
Shooting occurs with up to 1/6 less radiation than a medical tomography. The amount of beam delivered is only between 0.5 and 1.5 panoramic x-rays. Image quality and resolution are very high.
You can view areas that cannot be exposed with panoramic and periapical x-rays. You can take coronal, axial, sagittal (cross section) sections from the captured image and make a more detailed diagnosis.
You can obtain high resolution data for implant planning and surgical guide preparation. You can make pre-treatment plans such as soft tissue detection, bone density measurement, mandibular canal distance measurement.
You can perform post-treatment, post-prosthesis, and post-implant postoperative checks.
