If you’re looking for reliable dental care, our 57 Dental & Implant Centre is happy to help. We are proud to provide our patients with the latest cutting-edge technology, including a CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scan, which can give our dentists a detailed 3D image of your mouth to help diagnose and treat a variety of dental and oral health issues.
CBCT scanning is a form of digital imaging that uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to produce detailed 3D images of the teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures. Unlike traditional 2D X-rays, which provide a flat image of the teeth and jaw, CBCT scanning allows for a complete 360-degree view of the patient’s dental anatomy. This means that we can see detailed images of the teeth, jawbone, nerves, and sinuses, providing valuable information for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
During a CBCT scan, the patient sits or stands still while the scanner rotates around their head, taking hundreds of images from different angles. These images are then combined using advanced software to create a detailed 3D image of the patient’s dental anatomy.
CBCT scanning offers a number of benefits for both patients and dental professionals. Some of these benefits include:
