Should I have any concerns about getting a CBCT scan?

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 in to your appointment.  

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
