3D CBCT Scan – Cutting Edge Dental Scans

3D CBCT scan and digital x-rays are an important part of evaluating teeth issues.

3D CBCT Scan Special – $199

At Smiles by Hanna, your comfort is our top priority. We know that cutting-edge technologies help us provide the most customized dental care, while reducing your pain and discomfort. It’s why we opt for Waterlase Laser technology instead of scalpels, and our state-of-the-art 3D CBCT scanner for our more complex dental cases. Here’s how you can expect to benefit from a 3D CBCT scan.

What is a 3D CBCT scan?

A 3D CBCT scanner is a special type of X-ray machine that is used when traditional X-rays aren’t sufficient. 3D CBCT scanning has revolutionized the dental imaging field by creating images that are:

  • Panoramic
  • Precisely-detailed
  • Three-dimensional

This 3D technology uses cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to create the highest-quality images of your mouth. Tomography refers to layered pictures. Computed refers to the fact that these images are compiled to create a striking, comprehensive image of your mouth’s structures.

Unlike X-rays that focus on bones, CBCT scanners can generate a full view of your:

  • Teeth
  • Soft tissues
  • Nerve pathways
  • Facial bone structure

Our PreXion Excelsior 3D CBCT scanner

At Smiles by Hanna, we use the state-of-the-art PreXion Excelsior scanner. It creates a 360-degree view of your mouth, with up to 1,000 distinct images. The scan itself only takes a few seconds.

Unlike traditional X-rays, 3D CBCT dental scans allow us to better visualize tooth decay and structure. With these images, we can better design dental implants, orthodontics equipment, or sleep apnea treatments for you. In less than a minute, the scanner will be compiling your images so we can create precise models for whatever dental procedure you need.

With our $199 special, you can access this cutting-edge technology to plan your future dental treatments. Get started today by making an appointment at our Gilbert, AZ dentist office.

What are 3D CBCT scans used for?

3D CBCT dental scans provide the best care for the following procedures:

  • In orthodontics work, 3D CBCT scans show where and how your teeth can be moved to revitalize your smile
  • For dental implants, these scans help us find the precise location of all affected structures, including nerve canals and sinuses, while also providing a surgical guide for where to best position your implant
  • CBCT dental scans allow us to visualize conditions like TMJ disease and impacted teeth to inform our future treatment choices
  • For sleep apnea patients, a 3D CBCT scan can help us make a diagnosis and provide treatment options depending on your airway’s structure

In less than a minute, we can create a highly-detailed, 360-degree image of your mouth. To learn how 3D CBCT scanning can help with your dental condition, contact Smiles by Hanna, a Gilbert, AZ dental office, today!

What should I expect during the scan?

3D CBCT scanners work fast and require no special preparation on your part. You’ll simply need to remove any metal objects that could interfere with the scan. This includes jewelry, hearing aids, eyeglasses, or hairpins.

The arm of the CBCT scanner will rotate around your head in a complete 360-degree rotation. In less than a minute, it will take hundreds of images of your mouth. You won’t feel any pain during the scan.

However, since it is an X-ray machine, there will be a small amount of radiation exposure. At Smiles by Hanna, we ensure that only patients who need a scan receive it and those who do are appropriately draped and protected. If you’re pregnant, talk to your dentist before undergoing a 3D CBCT scan.
