What is cone beam imaging?

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray machine that is used to produce 3D images of your mouth that are much more accurate and precise than traditional x-rays. These high-resolution images can be used by Dr. Herrera to identify a wide range of conditions such as infections, tumors, and cysts. It is also a highly effective tool in developing individualized treatment plans. A Cone Beam CT scan is quick and comfortable for patients, with much less exposure to radiation than an x-ray. This non-invasive, convenient technology is considered the gold standard of 3D imaging, and we are proud to offer this option for patients at the Center for Oral and Facial Surgery.

What is cone beam imaging used for?

A cone beam CT machine allows Dr. Herrera to get a thorough, precise 3D image of your mouth in just one scan. This technology ensures that your diagnosis and treatment are accurate, and that your treatment process runs smoothly. Cone beam 3D images are used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient, because these images can differentiate between different types of tissue and provide a more thorough view of the bone.

What should I do to prepare for my scan?

There’s not much you’ll need to do to prepare for your scan. The process takes just a few moments, but there are a few things you should know before your appointment. Make sure that you wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes to your exam. Metal objects such as jewelry, eyeglasses, and hairpins may affect the CT scan and should be left at home or removed before your exam. We may also ask you to remove hearing aids and removable dental work before the scan.
