What is CBCT Imaging Used For?

Cone beam computed tomography, known as CBCT imaging, is used for getting a detailed, 3D view of your teeth, gums, jaw, and nerves. It can assist with numerous treatments, including:

  • Accurately placing implants
  • Planning for wisdom teeth removal
  • Root canal diagnosis
  • TMD diagnosis

How Does a CBCT Scan Work?

During a CBCT scan, you are positioned in the middle of the path of a motorized arm. The arm rotates around you, capturing images that are used to create a 3D image. The process lasts only 14 seconds and limits exposure to radiation!

What are the Benefits of CBCT Imaging?

  • You can view both 2D and 3D data at the same time.
  • It allows for a faster diagnosis.
  • One, 14-second scan will give us everything we need.
  • Patient jaw movement can be tracked in 3D with SICAT.
  • FaceScanner allows us to superimpose a 3D image of your face, allowing you to better understand the scan.
