What is CBCT Scan?
Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a variation of the computed tomography (CT) technology. This computerized scan is used in dentistry to evaluate your airway, jaw bone, jaw structure and joints in great detail.
CBCT Scan can help to diagnose many diseases, such as sleep apnea, TMJ, bone cancer, fractures, tooth root infections, gum problems and other issues affecting your jaw, gums and breathing. Its in-depth view of your oral structure helps dentists in planning the right course of treatment according to your condition.
Other than detecting diseases or abnormalities, CBCT Scan aids in dental treatment preparations, especially in evaluating the position of your teeth, bone structure, jaw joints and the airway for implants placement, orthodontic treatments, wisdom tooth removal and other complex dental care.
How It Works
To start the CBCT Scanning procedure, you will be seated in the CBCT machine and your head position will be adjusted for the scanning. A motorized arm will rotate around your head to capture multiple images from different angles, which will then be reconstructed to produce a single 3D image. In a single scan, hundreds of images can be generated for a thorough view.
During the scan, it is important to keep still. A full-mouth scan can take 20 to 40 seconds, while for a specific area, the scanning will take less than 10 seconds.

Q5: Is it more accurate than the conventional X-ray?
A5: Yes. CBCT Scan provides more information than the conventional X-ray since CBCT can scan both bones and soft tissues, unlike the conventional dental X-rays.
