Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) digitally replicates the anatomy of the face, jaws, teeth and surrounding structures in three dimensions.
CBCT scans are typically higher resolution than traditional medical CT's, but are taken in a fraction of the time. Since the scan takes only seconds, your radiation exposure will be much reduced when compared to a traditional CT scan. The exposure is also less than traditional, non-digital dental radiographs.
A typical scan takes 8.9 seconds and in some cases, e.g. children, a diagnostic scan can be obtained in 4.8 seconds.
Our in office CBCT scanner is more convenient and cost effective than a referral to a hospital or dedicated radiology clinic.
