CBCT Scanner


CBCT Scanner

At Clarence Dental Practice, we work to continuously develop our skills whilst investing in the newest and most innovative dental treatments and technologies, such as an onsite CBCT scanner.

What is a CBCT Scanner?

A CBCT scanner (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) is a state-of-the-art scanning machine that is used to produce precise, high resolution and detailed 3D images of a patient’s mouth including the teeth, jaws, sinuses, soft tissues and bones. Using the lowest possible radiation dose amongst products available internationally, the CBCT dental scanner is used as an advanced diagnostic tool to take a 3D CT scan of the patient’s mouth.

Our patients are able to receive the highest quality and most up to date dental care possible all under one roof, in less than 30 seconds.

What is a CBCT Scan used for:

A CBCT dental scanner has become a crucial tool that can be instrumental when considering complex treatments and surgical procedures. The resulting images can be useful for a wide range of cases, including those that involve:

  • Dental implant planning and placement
  • Diagnosis and detection of infections and tumours
  • Oral surgery
  • Complex endodontic cases
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Periodontal disease

This pioneering technology has transformed the way dentists treat their patients, providing a more effective planning process for intricate or potentially complicated cases and allowing for highly accurate treatment simulations.

Advantages of a CBCT Scan:

For our patients there are many benefits of CBCT scanning;

  • It is minimally invasive (particularly beneficial for anxious patients).
  • Provides the patient with an improved understanding of the treatment plan, as images can be used to explain how a procedure is going to work.
  • Allow the dentist to calculate how deep, wide and dense the ridge of your jawbone is before you commence implant treatment.
  • Aids in showing where structures like your nerve canals and sinuses lie, minimising any risks during the procedure.

There are also significant advantages for our dentists such as;

  • The images produced are incredibly accurate and detailed, which is beneficial during the detection and diagnosis of oral health problems.
  • Scanned images can be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and can aid in the planning of the most suitable treatments.
  • Dentists can use the detailed images to talk openly to patients about oral health conditions and more easily explain how treatment will work.
