At Open Dental we have invested in the very best in diagnostic technology for the benefits of our patients. One of the diagnostic items that we find invaluable is a CBCT 3D High Definition Scanner. We are happy to invite and accept referrals from other dental practices who can also benefit from improved patient care by using this technology.
A CBCT scanner gives a three dimensional image to allow a view that is just not possible with an ordinary X-ray. 3D images allow us to receive greater diagnostic criteria and therefore a more definitive outcome when deciding on treatment alternatives.
3D scans are usually used in the planning process of placement of dental implants but they also have many other uses particularly in endodontics. A 3D image of the root structure of a tooth can help when deciding why a tooth is not responding to the usual endodontic protocol.
Please download and complete the CBCT Referral Form and submit it to our team at [email protected]. If you require an urgent scan please phone in the first instance so we can arrange a quick appointment for your patient.
