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.
Most appointments average 15 minutes from start to finish. You will be asked to pay for your Scan on the day.
