Cone Beam CT Imaging

Cone Beam CT

At Bright Dental in St. Albert, Dr. Neves uses Cone Beam CT Imaging to help diagnose and aid in dental processes such as orthodontics, implants, or root canals. Cone Beam CT has some similarities with conventional X-rays, but with lower radiation exposure. It allows Dr. Neves to visualize intricate structures inside the mouth, such as root canals, nerves, and sinuses in the jaw - in three dimensions - without surgery. For the patient, it can reduce the need for invasive procedures, shorten treatment time, and offer a chance for a better outcome.

The Cone Beam CT scanner uses a rotating imaging device that moves around a patient's head, recording between 150 and 600 different X-rays views in under a minute. Then, the computer processes the information and creates a virtual model that can be viewed on the computer screen. CT scanning is painless, noninvasive, and accurate.
