What Are Planmeca CBCT X-Rays?
Planmeca CBCT x-rays are cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) used to create three-dimensional images of the teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures. At Bright Young Smiles in Lighthouse Point, FL, we employ the premium imaging of Planmeca x-rays to place dental implants and enable accurate and precise oral surgeries.
Planmeca CBCT x-rays use low-dose radiation, providing a high level of detail. This makes them a valuable tool for Drs. Jared and Catherine Young to make informed decisions about the best procedures for your oral health and allows you, the patient, to see crystal-clear, high-quality images of your mouth and its essential structures.
How Are Planmeca CBCT X-Rays Performed?
CBCT systems, like those manufactured by Planmeca, use a cone-shaped X-ray beam. The scanner size, radiation dose, and time required for scanning are significantly reduced compared to conventional CT scans. Yet, they provide a high-resolution 3D image that can be viewed and manipulated in various ways for a detailed evaluation of the patient's mouth and oral health.
An x-ray with a Planmeca CBCT system at Bright Young Smiles is performed by having the patient sit in a chair or stand while the CBCT machine rotates around their head. The patient must remain still during the procedure, which lasts only a few seconds. The machine uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to capture multiple images from different angles, then create a 3D image.
