Using the latest technology we can give a highly detailed diagnosis of what is going on in your mouth. With our state of the art on-site radiography, we can give you accurate images of critical anatomy, bone structure and tooth orientation.
This dental imaging is invaluable to dentists as it will give you a greater understanding of what is going on. We use Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) which is superior to flat two dimensional X-rays. This is because it gives us 3D cross-dimensional images to better represent your case.
CBCT is very useful in many different types of dentistry, especially implants, managing impacted teeth and root canal treatments. Cross-dimensional 3D dental imaging will allow us, or your dentist, to plan your treatment with the utmost accuracy.
Whether you have been referred to us, or are our patient, you can rest assured that the diagnosis will be better than standard flat radiography. Contact us to discuss the options and check out the FAQs page for more information.
Having a CBCT is simple. We’ll explain everything to you and keep it simple. You’ll be asked to place your head into a chin rest whilst the scan is taking place and the machine will rotate around your head. It will only last less than 10 seconds but it is important you remain still. The specialist equipment will keep radiation to a minimum and any risks are greatly outweighed by the benefits.
