What Are CT Scans?

CT, short for Computer Tomography are a 3D cone beam X-Ray that will accurately show the structure of the jaw and vital areas, such as nerves, sinuses etc. This is invaluable for dental implant dentists as it allows for them to plan for careful implant placement.

Why Would You Need a CT Scan?

In some cases that are having dental implants, it may be advised that you require a CT scan before you can proceed. This is so the dentist can safely and accurately plan the best placement of the implants for optimum results.

Allow a replica virtual placement of an implant into a 3D mock-up of your jaw.
