Convenient Care Using Advanced Cone Beam CT Scans
Cone beam CT scans (CBCT) are specialized dental technology that provides our Kalispell dentists with detailed 3D images of your teeth and surrounding tissues. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to see your entire bone structure for more detailed and advanced treatment planning.
Additionally, cone beam scans can reduce your recovery time by making high-precision procedures such as dental implant placement more predictable. Explore our guide below to learn more.
It’s Fast & Easy
You won’t need to do anything in the days before your appointment at our Kalispell office to prepare for your cone beam CT scan. Before we perform the scan, we’ll ask you to remove anything that could interfere with the process, such as jewelry, eyeglasses, or hearing aids.
Once you’ve removed any items that might interfere with the scan, you’ll place your chin and forehead on the designated areas. We’ll then adjust the equipment for your comfort while ensuring the images are accurate.
The scanning procedure takes less than 60 seconds to complete. During this time, the cone beam scanner will make a single rotation around your head, capturing images from all angles. Our special computer software then converts this information into detailed 3D images.
