Cone beam CT (computed tomography) is a higher tech version of an x-ray. A cone shaped x-ray beam is rotated around your head to produce high-quality three-dimensional images of teeth, bone, soft tissues, and nerves. It captures several images and strings them together to create a single three-dimensional image. These images allow for a more accurate diagnosis of a number of different issues. While similar to a traditional Cone beam CT scan, it is not the same (it is closer to an x-ray), but it was developed to produce similar images.
An intraoral scanner is a piece of equipment that uses optical and laser scanning to take three-dimensional images of your mouth. The iTero intraoral scanner is compact and comes equipped with a wand attached to a portable monitor, which we use to scan the inside of your mouth. This intraoral scanner allows for us to give you the best, most accurate, care possible.
