Cone-Beam Computed Tomography
Cone beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) 3D imaging uses an advanced, 3-dimensional x-ray scanner to capture accurate and reliable images of your mouth, jaw and facial structure. Weiser & Grant Dentistry has invested in the latest technology to ensure that your diagnosis and treatment are the most accurate they can be, with precision and excellent care.
Benefits of CBCT
- Better Image Quality
Cone beam imaging can capture images of your bone, soft tissue, and teeth all at once, unlike traditional x-rays. These images are of a higher quality than even the highest-quality multi-slice CT scanners.
- Lower Doses of Radiation
Cone beam imaging is an alternative to traditional CT scans. While CT scans are safe and effective, they expose patients to a relatively high dose of radiation. In contrast, cone beam imaging uses a focused x-ray that only scans the head.
- Faster Scan Times
CT Scans can easily take 15-30 minutes. CBCT scans usually take 10-70 seconds, depending on the particulars of the scan. This means that you spend less time both in the scanner and in the waiting room.
- Can Be Customized To Scan Different Parts of the Face
CBCT imaging can be used for comprehensive scans as well as individual parts of the facial anatomy.
