What is a Dental Cone Beam CT Scan (CBCT)
A dental cone beam CT scanner uses x-rays and a computer to produce cross-sectional and 3D images of the upper and lower jaw including all teeth.
It provides undistorted and accurate views that cannot be acquired by 2D X-rays. It is non-invasive, safe and quick with precise results.
The greatest advantages of a CBCT over a medical CT is that the level of effective radiation dose the patient receives is significantly less by up to 98%*.
Patient positioning for these examinations involves sitting in a chair as opposed to lying on a bed and moving through a tunnel. Scan times are reduced considerably minimizing patient movement.
