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 3D images of a patient’s mouth including the teeth, jaws, soft tissue and bones – all with high levels of detail.
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. The resulting images are comparable to medical CT scans.
