CBCT Dental Scans at Dutch Barton
At Dutch Barton Dental Practice we have our own Cone Beam CT scanner (CBCT) saving you the stress and hassle of having to go elsewhere for this detailed dental scan.
A CBCT scan is especially useful for dental implant patients as it takes a high-resolution 3D image of your teeth, jawbone, sinuses and nerves. The CBCT Scan allows your dentist to accurately plan treatments and see whether you may require any additional treatment before dental implant treatment, including a sinus lift or bone grafting. 3D scans produce accurate images of your teeth and jaw, allowing for detailed planning for dental implant treatment, for example assessing the depth, width and density of your jaw bone for improved accuracy and outcome. A CBCT Scan also shows your dentist exactly where to position the implants.
This type of scan is completely safe and allows us to build a precise and accurate treatment plan for our patients.
OPG X-Rays available in Wiltshire
We also offer patients Orthopantomogram(OPG) x-rays which give a wide panoramic view of the upper and lower jaw and the entirety of your teeth from root to crown, in one single film. This is an excellent way to see all the structures within the mouth and gives a greater clarity than traditional x-rays.The OPG unit rotates around your head for around 20 seconds and the image is ready shortly after that.
I had a digital scan; no gunge, nothing. Just Simon put a fine pencil in my mouth for the camera. He was looking behind to see what was going on and that took maybe 5 minutes to go around my mouth and that was it.Anne, Crown in one visit patient
