CBCT 3D Scan
Get the whole picture
Used for root canals, implants, and for general diagnostics, dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or panoramic x-rays are not sufficient. Dr. Girard and the Oaklands Dental team may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
How does the procedure work?
During a cone beam CT scan, the arm or gantry rotates around the head in a complete 360-degree rotation while capturing multiple images from different angles that are reconstructed to create a single 3-D image.
The scan generates between 150 to 200 high resolution two-dimensional (2-D) images, which are then digitally combined to form a 3-D image that can provide the Oaklands Dental team with valuable information about your oral and craniofacial health.
This procedure requires little to no special preparation. Please let us know if there’s a possibility you might be pregnant.
