Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
The CBCT or Cone Beam CT is a medical imaging technique which makes a 3D representation of the tooth, bone, ligaments, and sinuses, etc. With this type of x-ray, we can see the head and neck in remarkable detail, from many different planes of view. two-dimensional x-rays have many limitations on accurate diagnosis. The CBCT allows us to see areas of concern that don’t show up on traditional x-rays. The CBCT is useful to assess impacted teeth, dental implant placement, review dental pathology, trauma, assess the TMJ joint, and evaluate the airway to treat obstructive sleep apnea. Our Green Vatech CBCT offers ultra-low dose radiation which minimizes unnecessary radiation exposure to patients.
