CBCT Scanning

What is CBCT Scanning?

A dental CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scan is a specialised imaging technique used in dentistry to create detailed three-dimensional images of the teeth, jaws, and facial structures. It is quick, non-invasive, and provides a comprehensive view of the anatomy. CBCT scans are essential for precise treatment planning in procedures like dental implants, orthodontics, and assessing dental conditions.

CBCT Scanning FAQ'S

Dental CT scans are used to assess and plan for a range of dental procedures, including dental implants, root canals, orthodontic treatment, and evaluating jawbone health.

Dental CT scans are generally safe, as they use lower radiation doses than traditional medical CT scans. The benefits of precise imaging often outweigh the minimal risks.

While the radiation exposure is minimal, it’s important to limit unnecessary exposure. Dentists typically recommend dental CT scans when the benefits are clear and significant.

Dental CT scan preparations are usually straightforward, and they may include removing any metal objects and sometimes refraining from eating or drinking before the scan.

During the procedure, you will be positioned in a dental chair or scanner, and the machine will rotate around your head to capture detailed images.

Dental CT scans are not painful. You will need to remain still during the procedure, which can take a few minutes.

Dental CT scans are recommended based on the specific dental issue, and not everyone requires one. Your dentist will determine if a dental CT scan is necessary in your case.
