Helpful information for patients
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray machine used in situations where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. This type of CT scanner uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning.
If you are scheduled for a scan, you should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your exam. You will remain fully clothed for the scan. Metal objects, including jewelry, eyeglasses, dentures and hairpins, may affect the CT images and should be left at home or removed prior to your exam. You may also be asked to remove hearing aids and removable dental work. You may be asked to remove any piercings, if possible. PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR TECHNICIAN IF YOU MAY BE PREGNANT.
Payment is expected at the time of the scan. MasterCard, Visa, Discover, Cash and Check are acceptable forms of payment. Insurance/flex spending reimbursement forms are available. Scans can be done Monday through Thursday, 8am to 4pm. You or your referring doctor may schedule your appointment.
