Treating an ectopic canine?
CBCT’s provide images with minimal distortion that allow you to accurately determine the position of the apex and crown within the maxilla. Inspect the angle of eruption and whether the tooth lies on the buccal or palatal aspect. We also employ limited field of view scans so that only the area of interest is irradiated, minimising radiation exposure to your patients.
Resorption, Mesiodens & Supernumeraries
The scans also demonstrate the presence and extent of root resorption, supernumerary teeth & mesiodens/dens-in-dente that are sometimes easily missed on the OPG or intraoral film.
