Understanding CBCT Scanning at Fleischmann DDS, Auburn, CA

What is a CBCT Scanner?

A Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) or pano scanner is a cutting-edge piece of dental technology that allows dentists to create 3D images of teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. It’s a type of X-ray equipment that’s used when regular dental or facial X-rays are not sufficient. CBCT is non-invasive, safe, and provides detailed images that are crucial for precise diagnosis and treatment planning.

Benefits of CBCT Scanners

Here are some significant benefits of a CBCT scanner:

Accurate Imaging:
CBCT provides detailed, high-resolution, 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone density, allowing for a more accurate diagnosis.

The CBCT scanner is quick and efficient, usually completing a full scan in less than one minute.

Lower Radiation:
CBCT scans have significantly lower radiation exposure compared to traditional CT scans.

CBCT scanners are useful in a wide range of dental specialties, including oral surgery, endodontics, orthodontics, and implantology.
