Cone beam CT scan is a special type of x-ray equipment that is used when regular dental xrays are not sufficient.
This technology uses 3D images of your teeth, bones, soft tissue and nerves to help your dental professional decide the best treatment options for you.
Many patients requiring surgery, implants, root canals and orthodontics may require a dental cone beam CT.
Since the equipment is so unique your dental provider may refer you to our practice to have this completed.
When you come to the office, we will need you to remove all jewellery and any facial piercings as they interfere with the quality of the image.
After the scan is completed a copy of your images and a report will be sent to your dental provider so that they can go over the results and any treatment required with you.
Not all insurance companies cover dental cone beam CT. We can provide you with an estimate for you to submit to your insurance company.
