CBCT Scans (3D)

Dental CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) is a high resolution three-dimensional (3D) scan, which focuses x-rays in a shape of a cone, in the required area, to produce 3D medical images of supreme quality at minimal radiation exposure.

Dental CBCT scans enable to evaluate the position of teeth, bone structure, jaw joints and the airway, and are commonly used by dentists for planning of dental implant placement, impacted teeth removal and root canal treatment, as well as for orthodontic and endodontic evaluation.

At DentQ, we provides 3D scans in multiple digital formats, including: raw Dicom files, PACS (for online viewing), iRys and i-CAT (for viewing and editing with PCs), Romexis (for viewing and editing via Mac/OS), and SimPlant and iDent (for planning implant placement). We also provide 3D scans for dental drill guides, including NobelGuide and MGuide (for MIS implants), as well as CT scans of radiographic templates (for computer-guided surgeries).

Our CBCT scans are provided with combined AI and human processing (including marking of root canal, arches and more) in various output methods: PhotoPaper prints and digital files on CD and Disk-on-Key are handed manually or sent via land mail, while PDF and other digital files are also conveniently supplied via e-mail or cloud access. Digital files are often provided with related software tools for viewing, editing and planning.

OPG Images (2D)

OPG (Orthopantomography, also known as panoramic radiography or a pantogram) is an X-ray scan that portrays a panoramic or wide view of the lower face in single two-dimensional image. It can display all the teeth on both jaws on one film, including those that have not surfaced or erupted yet, such as wisdom teeth. It also offers a view of the jawbone and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects the jaw to the rest of the skull.

OPG scans enables to view all patient’s teeth and to determine their number, position, and growth, including those that have not yet erupted. An OPG X-ray might be done to plan orthodontic treatment, to detect the presence or asses the development of wisdom teeth, to examine the jawbone, or for a general overview of the patient’s dental health.

Our OPG scans can be provided as is, or with combined AI and human processing report, and are delivered in various output methods: PhotoPaper with real size prints and digital files on CD and Disk-on-Key are handed manually or sent via land mail, while digital images are also supplied via e-mail or cloud access.

CEPH Images (2D)

CEPH (Cephalometric) analysis is an x-ray scan that results two-dimensional images, similar to OPG, but it also includes a view of the skull and neck. CEPH scans enable to inspect dental and skeletal relationships of a human skull. It is used by dentists, orthodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons for diagnosis of TMJ problems, tooth misalignment (overbite and underbite), tooth and jaw fractures, as well as for planning orthodontic work and for precise teeth and root measurements.

CEPH analysis results are provided to dentists in similar ways to those in which we provide OPG scans (see above), and include two types of scans – Lateral CEPH and P-A CEPH:

Lateral CEPH

Lateral cephalometric scan show a side view of the face, and is often used by orthodontists for planning teeth straightening treatments in children.

P-A CEPH

P-A (Posteroanterior) cephalometric scans show a front view of the face, and is often used by orthodontists for planning tooth misalignment treatments in adults.

CEPH Tracing

DentQ also provides digital CEPH tracing that automatically compare CEPH scans of a specific patient over time, and thus show dental and facial growth changes, and enable to define the required orthodontic treatments and to evaluate treatments results. It also enables to automatically benchmark patients facial and dental patterns against the norms. Digital CEPH Tracing saves orthodontists very tedious manual work, while providing them with more accurate and detailed information about their patients.

Radiology Reports

DentQ’s radiology team includes qualified veteran dental radiologists that carefully inspect patients’ scans and medical records and provide basic and detailed radiology reports to dentists and doctors in various countries. In some of these countries countries, like Italy, radiology reports are mandatory, and are therefore provided with any dental and maxillofacial scans, including CT (3D), OPG (2D) and CEPH scans. In other countries, like the UK, radiology report are optional, but are still requested by about 33% of all dentists, that want to make sure no serious maladies were skipped, or ask for in-depth pathology analysis. All in all, DentQ provides thousands of radiology reports every month, and is by far the biggest and most experienced provider of dental radiology reports in the world.

Basic Radiology Reports

Brief reports signed by certified radiologists, that rule out pathologies and findings that affect patient treatment plan, and provide legal immunity to the dentist.

Full Radiology Reports

Detailed reports signed by certified radiologists that include in-depth oral and maxillofacial pathology analysis, and provide full cover to dentists and their patients.

Intra Oral Scans (3D)

Intra Oral scans are performed by a unique dedicated scanner that is inserted to the mouth and captures a direct optical impression or the teeth and interior of the mouth. The scanner projects a light source onto the area to be scanned. The images are captured by imaging sensors and are processed by scanning software, which then produces a 3D surface model

Intra Oral scans enable to create highly accurate digital impressions of dental arches, including teeth and implants and gum tissues, in a fast and comfortable way. These digital impressions are used as guides to properly size, fit and color crowns and bridges; veneers, inlays and onlays; temporary crowns and virtual diagnostic wax-ups; as well as removable partial dentures. Digital impressions also help in better planning of orthodontic treatments.
