What is the Cone Beam Scanner?

The CT Cone Beam scanner is a type of x-ray machine that allows Dr. Shelton to see more than just your jawbone and teeth. The quick and painless scan provides three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone using one piece of imaging equipment.

The scans integrate with elite technology, which allows them to be viewed on large screens with zooming capabilities to see even the smallest details of your oral structures. Dr. Shelton uses the information to detect conditions while they are in their earliest stages of development while also evaluating your oral structures for certain treatments, like the placement of dental implant posts.

How It Works

A CT scan is a quick and painless process that does not require any special preparation; however, you will need to remove any metal objects, like jewelry and eyeglasses. You sit in a chair or lie on a moveable table to allow the square-shaped machine to capture images using a rotating head.

The machine performs a 360-degree rotation to capture multiple images at once. The entire scan is completed in less than one minute. The images are sent to a monitor where Dr. Shelton can view them to assess your oral health and structures.
