3-D Imaging

We have a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) machine that produces three dimensional (3-D) images of teeth, jaw bone, jaw joints, and nerve pathways in a single scan. It has a quicker motion compared to traditional CT scan with lower radiation. It has a huge diagnostic and therapeutic benefit uncovering more details from different angles and give precise tissue measurements that otherwise cannot be revealed using traditional (2-D) radiographs. This helps in many dental procedures particularly in inserting implants with greater accuracy and with less invasive surgery.

This is a great example of just how big a difference 3-D imaging makes!

What Is A CBCT Scan?

Dental Cone Beam Tomography [Dental CBCT] is a specialized type of x-ray that produces three dimensional (3-D) images of teeth, jaw bone, Jaw joints, and nerve pathways in a single scan. It has a quicker motion compared to traditional CT scan with lower radiation.  It has a huge diagnostic and therapeutic benefit uncovering more details from different angles and give precise tissue measurements that otherwise cannot be revealed using traditional (2-D) radiographs.

What are the benefits of a Dental CBCT scan?

  • Provides 3-D images of teeth, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone which are considerably more detailed than conventional two-dimensional dental x-rays. 

  • Allows for more precise diagnosis and treatment planning.  This is particularly useful in inserting implants with greater accuracy. There is no image distortion, the dimensions can be measure accurately on the 3-D image and any view/direction.

  • Is simple and comfortable to take 

  • What are the common uses of a Dental CBCT scan?

Dental CBCT scans are commonly used to:

  • Evaluate the teeth, bone, jaw joints and the airway.

  • Place implants more predictably. 

    • Risk assessment and planning for the removal of impacted wisdom teeth when they are close to the jaw nerve.

    • Complex root canal diagnosis and treatment
