At Tahoe Oral Surgery and Implant Center, we are dedicated to utilizing the most modern and advanced technologies to keep you comfortable and safe during your procedure. One of the most advanced machines in our office is our Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanner. Dental CBCT is an advanced, specialized piece of x-ray equipment that allows us to produce a three dimensional image of your teeth, jawbone, nerve pathways and soft tissues. The resulting image allows us to carefully and accurately evaluate your condition to see full diagnostic information and develop a careful and precise plan based on your specific needs.
Cone Beam CT is similar to a conventional CT, but different in a few important way. CBCT has the distinct advantage of significantly lower radiation exposure compared to conventional CT. In addition, the machine is much smaller, allowing us to perform the imaging scan right here in our office.
When you come in for a CBCT scan, wear loose, comfortable clothing and leave jewelry and other metal items at home. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns.
