CBCT Advanced Technology

A CBCT scanner is a Cone Beam Computerized Tomography, also known as a variant of a CT Scan. This shows images in 3-D and allows us to view the bone architecture and density. The CBCT scanner originated in Europe beginning in 1999 for craniofacial imaging. We began using this technology in the U.S. in 2001.


Why Is CBCT Important?

Using A CBCT scanner enhances the process of diagnosis and treatment planning. Being able to view these images allows us to completely delve into your treatment with as much knowledge as possible for optimal success. Below is a list of why a CBCT scanner is important for you and our team here at Picasso Smiles.

With the CBCT scan, even though it is known to produce less radiation than the average CT scan, there is a risk due to a hyper focused area of scanning. The risks are slightly higher for children and teenagers who are exposed. This is rarely a risk for us considering we have the best surgeons you can trust and have professional knowledge of the use of the CBCT scanner. The more important benefits of a CBCT scan include:
