We use Dental 3D CBCT Scanning at Belmore Dental Implant Clinic to ensure your treatment is as safe, efficient and accurate as possible.
Our high tech CBCT scanner is able to produce incredibly detailed images whilst using very low doses of radiation to produce amazing 3D images of the teeth and the surrounding structures. This cutting edge technology allow us to distinguish between different types of tissue and see structures in and around the mouth in greater detail than a traditional X-ray would normally allow.
There are many reasons why CBCT scanning is so important in dentistry not only from a diagnosis point of view but also to assist in treatment planning. The use of CBCT scanning in dentistry continues to increase as dentistry evolves and becomes more dependent on technology.
Scanned images can also be used to monitor the efficacy of treatment and assist our dentists during consultation as we can use the images to talk openly to patients about oral health conditions and more easily explain how treatment will work.
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.

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.
