Should I have any concerns about getting a CBCT scan?

dentist using cone beam Safety is your dentist’s primary concern in any procedure you undergo while in their care.  While the X-ray exposure during the CBCT scan is higher than traditional X-ray examinations, your dentist will only advise and carry out this scan if it is deemed appropriate for your specific dental needs.  A “medical” CT scan would have considerably higher exposure to X-rays making the CBCT scan a safer alternative.   

Speak With Your Casuarina Dentist

It is advised that you discuss any concerns about a procedure or your condition with your Darwin dentist.  They will be your best resource for explaining your situation and their safety protocols.  If you have been referred to a different medical facility you should feel free to ask any questions about what is being done and why before you go into your appointment.
