Cone Beam CT (CBCT) Scan
The CBCT scan is a newer form of technology that takes our X-ray capabilities to the next level. Since our teeth and jaws are not two-dimensional, traditional forms of X-rays are often not sufficient for displaying certain dental conditions. With our CBCT scan we are able to capture three-dimensional images to better diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions including dental implant planning, root canals, and managing impacted teeth.
We recommend planning on twenty minutes for the set up, the scan, and for viewing your images but the procedure itself only lasts a matter of minutes. We will carefully position you for the scan, once started the CBCT will move in a circular motion around your head but will not touch you. Once the scan is complete we will discuss the images and suggest a treatment plan for your individual dental needs.
