A dental cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) system is a technology that uses a cone-shaped x-ray beam to capture 3-D images of your teeth, mouth, jaw, and neck. Dr. Tostado uses an innovative Dentsply Sirona cone beam machine to view, diagnose, and treat patients accurately.
How Does a CBCT Scan Work?
A dental cone-beam CT scan works by rotating a cone-shaped x-ray beam around your head while standing. The scan is quick and comfortable.
What Are the Benefits of a Sirona CBCT Scan?
The benefits of the Sirona CBCT scan include the following:
- High-quality 3-D images
- Fast, comfortable scans
- Controlled radiation exposure
The Sirona CBCT machine takes 1,400 images in one circulation around your head to analyze your oral anatomy. The high-resolution images allow Dr. Tostado to diagnose dental health concerns and identify the optimal treatment accurately.
Fast and Comfortable
The CBCT machine moves around your head and takes panoramic images in less than 15 seconds while you stand comfortably in the scan room.
Controlled Radiation Dosage
Dentsply Sirona is committed to providing sharp, focused imaging while minimizing radiation exposure. The Sirona CBCT scan has a sensor and a low dose mode to keep radiation exposure as low as possible while achieving high-quality imaging.
Dr. Tostado uses other Sirona technology in his office, including the Primescan Connect intraoral scanner for precise digital impressions and planning orthodontic treatment with clear aligners. And he produces same-day crowns using a Sirona CEREC Primemill.
