What’s the Difference Between CBCT and Traditional X-Rays?

In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a dedicated Melbourne dentist, explains the distinguishing factors that separate old-fashioned 2-dimensional x-rays from digital 3D cone beam scans.

The difference between a CBCT and a normal X-ray has to do with the dimensions. Regular X-rays, the Panorex, which this actually takes, is two dimensional, so it shows us the height and the width. What we’re looking for when we’re placing our implants or giving other special care for you is an overall view of the bone that you have available. The newest types of units, which this is, has the minimal exposure of radiation to give us the best quality radiograph to give you the best care. So give us a call. We’ll set up an appointment for you to find out what options are best for you, to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
