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.
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.
A dental CBCT can take approximately up to 10 minutes.
