Dental imaging is a process of creation of a high quality images for the diagnosis of dental problems. Dental imaging technologies help dentists to diagnose dental diseases by providing actual and visual images of the dental problems such as hidden dental structure, cavities, bone loss, and oral malignant melanoma. Radiography is a valuable imaging modality and diagnostic tool that helps in clinical examination of dental problems. Radiographs are developed with image sensor technologies such as Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), panoramic, cephalometric, and intra-oral dental imaging.
Dental cone beam computed tomography is a special type of X-ray machine, which is used instead of regular dental or facial X-rays. Technological advancements in dental imaging technologies and growing elderly population are some of the major factors driving the growth of the dental imaging market. Some of the major digital dental imaging techniques include intra-oral radiography, panoramic radiography, cephalometric radiography, tomography, intra-oral photography, extra-oral photography, and surgical microscopy.
