Today, patients have high expectations of their dental treatment, and justly so. Complete and accurate diagnosis is required to meet these expectations and solve aesthetic challenges and issues concerning the safety of treatment. This is why adequate information is the key to designing a successful treatment plan.
X-ray images have always been the chief source of information for diagnosis and treatment planning in the dental surgery. Until recently, most of this information was derived from two-dimensional radiographs.
Dental (digital) volume tomography (DVT) is a state-of-the-art imaging modality representing the next generation of computed tomography (CT). It employs X-rays to image the body in cross-sectional slices and with the help of a computer compiles the images into a three-dimensional representation. Unlike computed tomography, DVT creates a three-dimensional image containing all data of interest in one run. Thus, the data can subsequently be processed as required using extremely sophisticated software.
DVT allows for:
With its 3D-capabilities, DVT opens up entirely new dimensions in dental diagnostics. For the patient, this imaging technique provides the best possible basis for optimal treatment results.
