Today’s digital technology has revolutionized the way dental offices perform X-Rays. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) provide faster, safer and more accurate than a regular CT device. It is used to give the dentist clear images of your bones and tissue to help assess your health and diagnose any problems that may be present or developing.

The time to conduct a full CBCT scan is about 20 seconds, and the radiation used is up to one hundred times less than a typical CT scanner. During this time, the patient experiences no pain or physical discomfort. The device is versatile. Typically, a CBCT scan is required for dental implants, oral surgery and orthodontics.
