3D Chin and Tooth Tomography

In cases where position of wisdom teeth and their relation with anatomic regions (distance to nerve-vein packet on lower chin and to sinus spaces on lower chin) needs to be evaluated as three dimensional and when structure of chin bones need to be evaluated with 3D tomography in making the implants it will be taken. It also helps while treatment plan is made for cysts and other patologies relating with chin and all the borders of cysts can be specified in detail.
