CBCT in Mount Gambier

Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a specialised type of X-ray that provides more information than conventional dental or facial X-rays. This computerised scan uses advanced technology to generate 3D images.

Benefits of Dental CBCT Scan

Dental CBCT scan:

  • Provides 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone which is considerably more detailed than conventional two-dimensional dental X-rays.
  • Allows for more accurate and precise diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Is simple and comfortable and can diagnostically image both bone and soft tissue at the same time.
