Dental CT Scanning
The foundation of successful implant dentistry and oral surgery is the use of the best diagnostic tools available, and CT scanning represents the gold standard for dental imaging. In recent years, dental technology has moved forward dramatically. CT scans were once the job of hospitals, with large, loud and cumbersome machines.
Traditional Dental X-rays
The images that a dental x-ray can produce are two-dimensional; these x-rays can show only the height of your bone as well as the location of your teeth.
A dental CT scan image, on the other hand, can produce both two-dimensional and three-dimensional views of your teeth and jaw bone. A CT scan for dental purpose can give your dentist a crystal-clear image of the actual make-up of your jaw bone area, as well as a cross-sectional and three-dimensional image of the jaws.
- Safe way for the clinician to fully diagnose the condition of your teeth and gums.
- A low level of radiation is emitted to take a very detailed 3D x-ray of your mouth while you lie comfortably in the dental chair.
- Highest certainty of success
- Instant results which are uploaded to our advanced software program.
- Digital images which can be easily copied or forwarded at your request.
What to expect during your dental CT scan
Prior to undergoing a dental CT scan, you will be asked to remove all items in and around your neck and head area that may contain metal, such as hair clips, eyeglasses, jewellery, hearing aids, removable bridges and dentures.
The dental CT scan procedure involves you standing facing the CT scanner with your head firmly but comfortably secured, to prevent unnecessary head movements during the dental CT scan. You may also be given a mouthpiece so that the dental CT scan can take clear shots of your jaws apart.
