WHAT IS A CBCT?
A CBCT ("cone beam computed tomography system") is a type of X-ray that allows our doctors to evaluate you mouth in a 3D point of view. Our office is equipped with this 3D imaging from Dentsply Sirona©. An advanced and integral piece of technology in our office that can help our dentists detect and diagnose potential oral problems. The scan takes only a matter of seconds using a fraction of the radiation that a standard full set of X-rays creates. For the first time, patients can see their anatomy in accurate, real-life perspectives that allows them to understand their own oral health. This 3D imaging machine is used in a variety of circumstances and can:
- Produce more accurate images
- Assist in dental implant placement
- Help our dentists recognize serious problems earlier
- Allow us to share information with other healthcare professionals, dentists, and insurance agencies, as needed
