We are happy to accept referrals from other dentists for scans.
What is a CBCT Scanner?
A CBCT scanner is a high-tech and modern imaging machine, which is capable of producing incredibly detailed internal views of the mouth and jaws. A CBCT scanner uses very low doses of radiation to produce amazing 3D images of the teeth and the surrounding structures. Unlike traditional X-rays, CBCT scanners can distinguish between different types of tissue and this enables the dentist to see structures in and around the mouth in greater detail and from a greater veriety of angles.
What are the benefits of a CBCT scanner?
The Carestream 81003D CBCT scanner has a range of benefits for both our dental professionals and patients. For our dentists, these benefits include:
- The scanner produces incredibly accurate and detailed images, which are extremely beneficial during the detection and diagnosis of oral health problems and structural abnormalities.
- Scanned images can be used to monitor the efficacy of treatment and can also aid in the planning of treatment.
- Dentists can use the detailed images to talk openly to patients about oral health conditions and more easily explain how treatment will work.
- CBCT scanners also improve accuracy and reduce the risk of mistakes, as they provide incredibly detailed images and allow dentists to assess the risk of a procedure or course of treatment.
