How CBCT 3D X-rays Improve Diagnosis and Treatment

Our advanced CBCT 3D X-ray technology gives a more complete picture of your oral anatomy than 2D imaging, which often misses critical health issues hidden behind another tooth.

This enhanced technology gives an extra layer of security by making sure we catch any critical information that could make a difference for your oral health.

How It Works

CBCT is just like a hospital CT scan, but with less radiation. It makes a 3D map of your teeth and bones so we can give an accurate diagnosis.

The process is similar to taking 2D X-rays. It takes 10 seconds to capture each image, so you won’t have to hold still for too long. Even better, there’s no need to place film inside your mouth, making your experience more comfortable.

This device uses a low dose of radiation. It is considered safe for everyone, including children. We only take imaging when you truly need it to minimise your exposure. Sometimes, taking one CBCT scan gives us the same information we would need several traditional X-rays to capture, thus reducing your total radiation dosage.

Improving Treatment to Meet Your Needs

If you need a root canal, we’ll use CBCT to locate the number and shape of affected canals. We might need 3D X-rays before extracting wisdom teeth or any other tooth. Identifying hidden or curved roots in advance will give us a better idea of the difficulty and risk involved, so we can recommend surgical extraction if necessary.

Dr Andrew (Dentist) will also use 3D scanning to diagnose the amount and degree of bone loss in patients with periodontal disease.
