DENTAL CONE BEAM CT SCAN in Camden and London

CBCT SCAN in London

A dental cone-beam CT (CBCT Scans) is a machine that provides high-resolution 3D images to get more precise information of bone structure and tooth orientation. The procedure is pain-free and a dental CBCT scan takes around just 20 seconds.

Where typical dental x-rays focus on a small area to produce a flat 2D image, CBCT scans combine dental X-rays and computerized tomography to create a 3D image of the jaws, including the bone shape and structure, soft tissues, and teeth.

Your dentist may request a CT scan for multiple reasons but it is mostly requested for dental implants planning and orthodontics (teeth straightening) to diagnose and plan an optimal treatment for patients.
