At Your Desired Smile, we provide Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Technology. CBCT is an innovative, state-of-the-art, medical imaging technique that provides dental professionals with a 3-D view of the patient. CBCT can greatly enhance a dentist’s ability to diagnose, evaluate, treat and care for patients.
During a CBCT scan, the machine rotates around the patient, capturing images using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These images are then used to construct a 3-D image of the patient’s teeth, oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck), and ears, nose, and throat.
CBCT provides a fast, non-invasive way of answering a number of clinical questions, and helps with the diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of certain conditions. The radiation doses from dental CBCT exams are generally lower than other CT exams.
