What is a CBCT scan?
It’s basically a three-dimensional radiograph. CBCT stands for “Cone Beam Computed Tomography”.It is quite similar to the “CAT scan” technology used in the medical domain.
The difference is that a cone-shaped beam is used to image a small area exclusively with significantly less radiation.
There is lesser distortion as compared to 2D images. Accurate measurements of the bone density, bone height and width are possible. It’s a quick and painless procedure which helps in accurate assessment of your facial skeleton and helps in planning of reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry procedures.
When do you need one?
You may be asked to get a CBCT scan done in the following cases-
- Dental implants – for the precise planning and placement of dental implants.
- For Assessment of Relative Bone Quality
- Root canal treatment – for clear-cut viewing of root canals.
- Temporomandibular Joint– for diagnosis of TMJ related problems
- Impacted teeth– for checking the position of the impacted tooth in relation to the neighboring structures like mandibular nerve and maxillary sinus.
- Orthodontic treatment– for evaluation of the facial structures and teeth.
What is the advantage of 3D CBCT Scan over 2D radiographs?
- Benefits of CBCT scan include high definition images with exceptional details.
- Multidimensional assessment is possible as multiple images are generated in various planes.
- Helpful in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
- Beneficial for Guided Surgeries.
What are the advantages of CBCT scans over CT scans?
- 90% less radiation exposure as compared to CT scans.
- Quick procedure of 30 seconds to a minute as compared to one hour procedure in CT scans.
- No discomfort like claustrophobia or loud noise
5. Transparent Financial planning for treatment
As you may have noticed that once we create your treatment plan, we inform you about the cost of the treatment planned.
Sometimes procedures require multiple appointments. So we accept payments in installments to make it easy for you to pay for the procedures. Financing is also offered to help make paying for dental care more manageable by spreading out the cost over a period of time and can involve the use of a credit card.
We also offer Dental Health Plan whereby you can receive a discount of 20% on your total invoice if you need to undergo at least 3 different procedures. Financing options can be provided for this purpose as well.
Once the treatment plan is decided and has your approval, the costs do not change so you need not worry about that. (Additional materials required for treatment and/ or procedures previously not included in treatment plan will change the cost).
6. Relaxing ambience in the clinic
We understand that visiting a dentist can make you anxious or stressed possibly due to past experience, the smells, sounds, or the way it looks.
The design and environment in the clinic are made with exactly that in mind so that we help you relax and be comfortable.
Our staff would be happy to answer any of your questions and concerns. We offer a relaxing ambience and work on appointment basis so you will experience little to no waiting time at the clinic, so you won’t have to wait all day for your treatment to be completed.
The waiting room is sufficiently spaced as well so you can maintain social distancing as per guidelines for COVID 19.
