New cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) takes 3D images of the mouth so precise measurements can be obtained when inserting dental implants to replace missing teeth. This advanced technology has multiple benefits for patients.
- CBCT scans allow a dentist to assess bone quality and exact placement for an implant.
- More precise measurements mean a smaller incision and faster healing.
- A CBCT scan takes seconds and provides full colour images.
Advanced technology means a dental implant can be carried out with minimal risk.
"your healing time will be faster because you’ll only have had a minor incision in your mouth."
