When a new technology appears, how does a dentist decide if it is right for them, or when to embrace the advanced technology in their practice? Dentists often incorrectly assume that certain technologies may be beneficial and practical for specialists or certain types of practices, but not for the average general dentist. Although CBCT is often viewed as on of these situations, this is definitely not the case.
It may be easy to understand the benefits of viewing the 3-D images created by CBCT systems for oral surgeons, TMJ specialists, endodontists and those placing dental implants, but does CBCT have a place in a general dentists office? The answer is an absoulte YES.
