Description

Cone Beam CT (CBCT) is an excellent tool in endodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. This course defines CBCT, compares the types of devices available, and discusses which ones are best in endodontics. It lists the advantages and disadvantages of CBCT. It shows how much radiation a patient receives compared to other medical and dental X-rays. The types of endodontic cases where a CBCT is indicated are listed. Several cases are presented where CBCT more clearly revealed the cause of the problem than conventional two-dimensional X-rays. CBCT sometimes prevents subjecting patients to exploratory surgery or endodontic access on hopeless teeth. Like the operating microscope, clinicians who utilize CBCT would not want to practice without it.
