All your dental work doneunder one roof with Tandara Dental

Whether you need braces, an extraction, or are just having a regular check up, being able to get all of your dental work and scans done in one place is far less stressful and far more efficient. Getting your dental x-rays and 3D scans with Tandara Dental means we can provide a quicker and more precise service to you.

What is the CBCT scanner used for?

Cone beam CT scanning, also known as 3D imaging, offers a complete picture of your teeth, jaw and face. Unlike traditional x-rays which only offer a 2D image, a cone beam CT scan provides our dentist with more detailed and accurate information about your teeth, roots, gums, nerves and more, and how they all work together.

This allows us to provide a more accurate and detailed diagnosis, as well as being able to provide treatment plans for a large range of dental issues, including root canals, oral surgery, orthodontics, TMJ disorders and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

A cone beam CT is used for finding issues in your bone structure or dental soft tissue.

What is cone beam CT imaging? A dental CBCT scanner, or a dental cone beam computed technology scanner is a form of dental CT scan. It’s a special type of x-ray scanner that can take both 2D images as well as 3D models of your face. They are used to scan:

  • Teeth
  • Soft tissues
  • Nerve pathways
  • Bone

The difference between a CT scan for dental and a CBCT machine is the CBCT machine can take 150-200 images in a minute to compile a 3D image, while the CT scan will take 10-30 minutes.

Yes, a CBCT machine is perfectly safe. It actually produces less radiation than most CT machines, but does produce more than a standard x-ray.

Once in the machine, a CBCT scan will take less than a minute to get a comprehensive 3D image.

If you’re coming in for a CBCT scan you won’t need to do anything. Once here, you’ll be asked to remove any jewelry or hearing aids, and we will position you in the machine – you’ll be out again in no time.
