CBCT Scan in Godstone
A CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) scan is a specialised type of x-ray imaging that provides highly detailed, three-dimensional images of the mouth, teeth, and surrounding tissues.
This advanced technology allows dental professionals to diagnose better and plan treatments for various dental and oral health conditions.
During a CBCT scan in Godstone, you will be asked to bite down on a small plastic holder while the scanner rotates around your head.
The scan is quick and painless, typically taking less than 10 minutes to complete.
Some of the benefits of CBCT scans include the following:
Enhanced accuracy: CBCT scans provide much more detailed images than traditional x-rays, allowing for more accurate diagnoses and treatment planning.
Greater efficiency: Because CBCT scans produce detailed, 3D images, they can often replace the need for multiple x-rays, saving time and resources.
CBCT technology is used in the planning process for dental implant surgery to help ensure the procedure is safe and accurate.
