Indications for Referrals

  • Endodontic High Resolution Scanning
  • Orthodontics
  • Implants
  • Complex Third Molars and Impacted Teeth
  • Dental Trauma
  • Abnormalities

We have the latest technology in CBCT scan software known as MAR (metal artefact reduction). This removes artefacts on the image caused by metal in the mouth such as crowns & implants resulting in improved diagnostic quality of the scan. CBCT scans are required as part of a dental implant consultation to assess patient availability.

Annual UK Background Radiation

2200µSv

CS8100 3D small field 16µSv

The data for this comparison was collated from a number of sources. Average UK background comes from HSE figures on record. All dental comparisons assume current Carestream digital imaging equipment. Small CBCT assumes posterior region where area is more dense and dose is higher. In the anterior region this falls to as low as 5µSv. Flight data from HPS, (Health Physios Society)

Patient Information

The 3D image is acquired simply by standing in an upright position while our Scanner rotates 360 degrees around your head. The procedure is completely non-invasive and can use up to 33 times less radiation than a traditional medical CT Scan.

You will need to remove anything that might interfere with the x-rays, such as dentures, orthodontic braces, earrings, necklaces, hairpins, glasses, hearing aids and facial piercings.

The information the Scanner gathers about your anatomy can aid diagnosis and make your dental treatment safer. It allows your dentist to visualise anatomy that cannot readily be seen with a conventional 2D radiograph. The Scan takes around 20 seconds.

The practice will provide you with information on the fees for your scan requirements.

Fees
