CBCT SCAN

Having a CBCT scan is very similar to having an X-ray. You will be asked to remove glasses, dentures, hearing aids, earrings, tongue and nose studs, necklaces, hair clips and any other metal accessories that may affect the scan. Your head will be carefully positioned and lined up with the machine.

A single CBCT scan can show potential dental issues such as tooth decay, bone loss, abnormal growths, facial fractures, periodontal infections, irregularities of the temporomandibular joint, and problems with the tooth roots or dental pulp and also helps us to see the bone density making it perfect for our patients who are interested in implants

OPG SCAN

Unlike other kinds of dental x-ray, which capture just one tooth or a section of the mouth, panoramic x-rays show the whole mouth in one single image. It can display all the teeth on both jaws on one film, including those that have not surfaced or erupted yet, such as wisdom teeth. It also offers a view of the jawbone and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects the jaw to the rest of the skull. This type of x ray is more suitable for our patients who struggle to have the more common intra-oral x rays more common in surgery.

ITERO SCAN

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.

iTero scans are a very non-invasive form of imaging technology that does not use radiation. A wand is moved over the teeth, and the scanner works quickly to collect images, capturing all the necessary data in a matter of minutes.

This type of scan is perfect for invisalign, whitening and veneers, the scan means that the patient doesn’t need to have the messy impression material you would normally have in the surgery.
