What is a
Dental Cone beam CT (CBCT)

Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT)systems.

The CBCT systems used by dental professionals, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam.

These data are used to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat.

What happens during my

dental x-ray and CBCT?

You will be asked to stand, biting on a mouth piece. The radiographer will position you in the correct position. The machine will then rotate around your head acquiring the images of your teeth.

How long will it take?

A dental CBCT can take approximately up to 10 minutes.
