3D Digital Radiographic Imaging

3D digital radiographic imaging provides detailed and comprehensive images for accurate dental diagnoses, treatment planning, and monitoring, enhancing precision and efficiency.

State-Of-The-Art Technology

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a type of CT scan, but much safer. It provides information we cannot get from conventional 2D dental X-rays, helping visualise the tooth and bone structure in three dimensions. It is a quick procedure and helps provide our patients with more predictable outcomes, through more accurate, precise diagnoses, treatment planning and implant placement. We have CBCT scanners at our Newport and Cardiff main practices. Cox and Hitchcock Dental Group has invested in the next generation of cone beam CT scanners for the Llanthewy Road practice. This state-of-the-art technology will make the diagnosis and planning of your treatment easier and more convenient.

The unrivalled image quality produced by the groundbreaking Morita Veraview X800 provides outstanding detail with minimal artefacts. The next-generation design incorporates the most advanced technologies in CBCT and panoramic imaging to take diagnostic clarity to a whole new level. Related features include 11 exposure fields and automatic “Dose Reduction Function.”  These features help to achieve the lowest radiation dose possible while maintaining exceptional image quality.
A key feature of the scanner is the ability to adjust the X-ray beam from an inclined angle for panoramic imaging to a horizontal beam for CBCT imaging, minimising artefacts and distortion.

Frequently Asked Dental Questions

We recommend that you always consult with one of our consultants before starting any treatment.

What is a CBCT Scan?

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your dentist may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan

Why do I need a CBCT?

CBCT scans are crucial to vusualise and plan complex dental treatment. This is particularly helpful when placing dental implants and complect root canal treatments, as the Cone Beam/CT scan images provide exellent detail of tooth and jaw anatomy.

What does a CBCT scan involve?

A CBCT scan is a simple procedure. The patient is carefully positioned (this takes a couple of minutes), asked to keep absolutely still, and the machine then rotates 360-degrees around the head while capturing a radiographic image. The computer software then uses this information to reconstruct a 3-D image. The scan time varies depending on the image required, but generally takes around 10 seconds to complete.

Does a CBCT scan show infection?

A CBCT scan will show an area of infection better than 2-D dental radiographs because it can also detect if an infection has spread and how far, something traditional X-rays are typically poor at doing.

Is a CBCT scan needed for root canal treatment?

We only recommend a small field CBCT scan for the most complex of root canal treatments, and where traditional 2-D radiographs fail to give us the all the information we need.
