KaVo 3D eXam revolutionises dental radiology
This technology allows the most precise treatment planning available in the fields of implantology, surgery, orthodontics and preservative dentistry. Perfectly matching the needs of the dentist and patient.
In-office, three-dimensional imaging – quick, easy, and cost efficient
The KaVo 3D eXam cone beam 3D dental imaging system provides high-definition, in-office, three-dimensional, digital imaging at reduced cost and less radiation to the patient than traditional CT scans. Intuitive software allows for quicker and easier image acquisition. Its tiny footprint and ergonomic design allow placement of the unit even when space comes at a high premium. Based on decades of experience of the market leader and hundreds of i-CAT installations, KaVo 3D eXam allows practices to extend their service offerings and enhance overall delivery of care. Sophisticated technology, which in its third generation, sets the gold standard again.
Most advanced 3D technology delivers highest quality imaging
The KaVo 3D eXam’s design incorporates state of the art digital imaging technology in a unit that makes economic sense, while meeting the high standards of imaging required by today’s most demanding practitioners.
The use of an advanced amorphous silicon flat panel image sensor reduces the overall sizes of the unit while delivering a higher image quality and resolution.
Provides a full range of diagnostic services
KaVo 3D eXam’s volumetric imaging system provides dentists and specialists complete views of all oral and maxillofacial structures, giving the dental professional the most thorough diagnostic information possible for a variety of treatment areas. This allows for more accurate treatment planning and more predictable treatment outcomes.

Expands in-office continuum of care
The technology and design of the KaVo 3D eXam puts advanced, in-office imaging within the realm of an expanding universe of practices – those that want to place themselves at the center of patient care by providing a full continuum of services, from diagnosis to treatment.
Uses in implantology
KaVo 3D eXam’s high resolution, volumetric images provide complete three-dimensional views of critical anatomy for the most thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation to optimise implant treatment and placement, and selection of the most suitable implant type, size, location, and angulation prior to surgery.
This includes the selection of the most suitable implant according to type, size, position and angle of the planned abutment before the actual surgical intervention.
Use in surgery
Accurate, three-dimensional views of impacted molars
Determine tooth position with highest precision to visualise impaction within the alveolar bone, location relative to adjacent teeth, and proximity to vital structures, such as the nerve canal, sinus walls, and cortical borders.
Detect and evaluate problems before they become serious.
Accurately measure bone and jaw deformities, assess bone lesions and changes of the jaw, and get help detecting other pathologies, such as cysts, tumors, and disease.
Three-dimensional views of critical structures for complete TMJ analysis
KaVo 3D eXam provides three-dimensional images of the condyles and surrounding structures for complete analysis and diagnosis of bone morphology, joint space, and function – all critical to TMJ dysfunction treatment and care.
A single high-speed scan captures TJ open jaw views quickly and accurately.
Use in orthodontology
A three-dimensional solution for a three-dimensional problem
Planning orthodontic treatment today requires large quantities of x-ray images, including a panoramic radiograph, cephalometric x-rays and a series of individual tooth images KaVo 3D eXam replaces all of these images with a single volumetric image.
All required perspectives such as panoramic, cephalometric and individual tooth slices can be extracted from the volumetric using simple and convenient image processing software on your PC, in any desired plane and in any desired quantity.
In addition, KaVo 3D eXam provides further diagnostic options
- Panoramic views from lingual direction
- Slices in all three planes with thicknesses down to 0.125 mm
- 3D images of all bone structures
- 3D images of all soft tissue structures
- Precise 3D-diagnosis of impacted teeth
- Relative position of the nerve to the impacted teeth in the mandible
- 3D examination of bone quantity prior orthodontic space closure
- Investigation of the amount of buccal and lingual tooth covering bone for recession prophylaxis
- Determination of dental arch shape subject to 3D bone quantity
- 3D planning of orthodontic surgery
- Strategy for arrangement of orthodontic anchor
- Assessment of sinus
- Evaluation of nasal septum
- Cephalometric 2D and 3D analysis
