X-rays are a great way at getting a detailed look at your oral region, but as technology continues to advance, we are able to utilize machines that go above and beyond what we ever could have dreamed. CBCT imaging allows us to create 3D head scans, giving us an extremely elaborate map that can be used for planning and during procedures. When you visit Snödental, you’ll be greeted with highly advanced technology, meaning you’ll be getting the most efficient treatments.
At Snödental, we use the Promax 3D LE 2D/3D. This machine allows us to capture both 3D head scans and 2D images for maximum coverage. We’ll be able to see the exact placement of everything in your mouth in a 3D space, such as your gums, bones, teeth, and nerves.
When we’re ready for your CBCT scan, you’ll stand in the middle of a device that will rotate around your head. You’ll still be in a completely open environment, so you won’t have to worry about the anxiety of being in a tight space. Once the rotation is finished, you can step out and we’ll be able to review your 3D head scan!
Since the machine will also take extra-oral bitewings, new patient exams will be much faster and less invasive. Plus, most patients won’t have to deal with getting dental film stuck in their mouth! Here are some other benefits of our CBCT scans.
