Innovative Imaging for Precise Dental Diagnostics

At CRE8 Smile Studio, we’re committed to providing our patients with the latest in dental technology. Our 3D CBCT imaging system offers unparalleled views of your dental anatomy, aiding in precise diagnosis and treatment planning.

What Is 3D CBCT Imaging?

3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is an advanced x-ray equipment that, unlike traditional dental x-rays, provides a 3D image of your teeth, oral and facial structure, nerve paths, and bone. This comprehensive view allows for more accurate assessments and treatments.

Advantages of 3D CBCT Imaging

  • Detailed Visualization: Offers a three-dimensional view that is more comprehensive than traditional 2D x-rays.
  • Accurate Diagnostics: Enhances the diagnosis of a wide range of dental issues.
  • Treatment Planning: Crucial for planning complex procedures such as dental implants, extractions, root canals, and orthodontics.
  • Safety: Emits less radiation compared to traditional medical CT scans and captures high-quality images quickly.

The 3D CBCT Process

  1. Consultation: Your visit will begin with a consultation to discuss the need for a CBCT scan.
  2. Scanning: You’ll be positioned, and the CBCT scanner will rotate around your head to capture images from different angles. The process is quick and painless.
  3. Analysis: Our dentists will analyze the 3D images, noting key details that inform your treatment plan.
  4. Review: We’ll review the findings with you and discuss the next steps in your dental care.

Common Uses for 3D CBCT Imaging

  • Implantology: Precise placement of dental implants.
  • Orthodontics: Detailed assessment of teeth positioning and jawbone structure.
  • Endodontics: Improved visualization for root canal therapy.
  • Oral Surgery: Planning for complex extractions and jaw surgery.
  • TMJ Analysis: Evaluation of the temporomandibular joint and related structures.

Is 3D CBCT Imaging Safe?

Safety is our top priority at CRE8 Smile Studio. Our 3D CBCT system is designed to minimize radiation exposure while maximizing image quality. The level of radiation is extremely low, especially when compared to conventional medical CT scanners.

Schedule Your 3D CBCT Scan

Embrace the future of dental imaging with 3D CBCT at CRE8 Smile Studio. Whether you’re in need of advanced diagnostics or planning for a specific dental procedure, our team is here to provide you with the highest standard of care.

CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. It is a specialized type of X-ray equipment that produces 3D images of your teeth, bone, soft tissues, and nerve pathways in a single scan.

Unlike traditional dental X-rays that provide a two-dimensional image, 3D CBCT imaging offers a three-dimensional view. This allows for more precise diagnosis and treatment planning, as it reveals more detail and a comprehensive view of dental structures.

The benefits of 3D CBCT include highly detailed images for accurate diagnoses, better treatment planning, and a safer option with lower radiation exposure compared to traditional medical CT scans.

Yes, CBCT imaging is safe. The amount of radiation exposure from a CBCT scan is typically less than that from a conventional CT scan. At CRE8 Smile Studio, we use the latest technology to ensure the lowest possible radiation exposure to our patients.

A CBCT scan is generally quick, typically completed in under a minute. The entire process, including preparation, may take only a few minutes.

No special preparation is required for a CBCT scan. You may be asked to remove any metal objects, such as jewelry, that could interfere with the imaging.

CBCT imaging can detect a variety of dental issues, including but not limited to, problems with jaw alignment, bone abnormalities, cysts, tumors, fractures, and more. It is particularly useful for planning dental implant surgeries and other complex dental procedures.

As with any medical imaging involving radiation, it’s generally recommended to avoid CBCT scans during pregnancy unless absolutely necessary. Inform your dentist if you are pregnant or suspect you may be pregnant.
