While X-rays have been a very useful tool in the world of dentistry, there’s always room for improvement. With cone beam computed tomography, we can create 3D scans of your oral region. At My Smile Dentistry, we’re always looking to bring in advanced technology to make your visit more efficient, with improved final results.
CBCT scans essentially give us an incredibly detailed map of your mouth. We can see your teeth, nerves, and jawbone – all in a 3D space. This makes planning procedures such as dental implant placement a lot easier as we’ll know exactly what to expect before beginning.
Getting a CBCT scan is fast and straightforward. All you have to do is stand underneath the machine, which will rotate around your head. The process takes only seconds, and it’s very open. Patients who can get anxiety from tight, enclosed spaces have no need to worry.
After the scan is completed, we can show you exactly how we’ll be completing your treatment.
