    So I’m still getting my feet wet with CBCT but it can be a very helpful piece of technology.  Recent case, saw something odd on a BWX:

     

    Looks odd, supernumerary tooth?  Take a PA, a little more info:

    Yep, extra tooth, but where?  Took a small field (5×5) scan of the lower arch only at ULD on my promax, now we know!

     

     

    Surgery isn’t my thing so burned the scan to a DVD for my OMFS, huge help for him to know where this tooth is and very minimal radiation to find out.  For these kinds of cases 3D is a huge help.

    Mike welcome to the world of CBCT. I’ve had my Planmeca for over four years now. It’s a real eye opener. I place my own implants, do apical surgery and endo and it has been an indispensable tool. You’ll be amazed at the apical radiolucencies you’ll see that aren’t so noticeable on PA’s.
