Dental Services – Cone Beam CT 

Cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a very low radiation dose, 3-dimensional scan using specialised equipment, which is mainly used to assess the jaw and teeth. It offers 3D evaluation of dental anatomy and pathology: for example, impacted teeth, pre-implant assessment, orthodontic assessment, and assessment for jaw and face surgery.
