What’s the Difference Between an X-Ray and a CBCT Scan?
Watch this video to earn more about the distinction between traditional X-ray imaging and modern cone beam CT scan technology.
A common question we get is, what is the difference between a regular X ray and a CBCT or cone beam, or 3D scan, as some people call it? Here we have a traditional Panarex that’s been around for, well, basically my entire life. Old technology, it still works, but it’s not exactly 3D, is it? This is a case here with multiple implants, as you can see. Now, with a 3D scan, this is what we have here now.
You can see all of these implants are in three dimensions. You can scan up, down, sideways, and we know exactly where these are going in your mouth. So if you’re interested in implant dentistry using the latest technology, please give us a call and ask for a complimentary exam and 3D scan.
