Benefits of CT Cone Beam Scans

by | Nov 9, 2014 | Blog

Here at Smile Glen Ellyn, we have invested in technology that will greatly benefit our patients. We sometimes see patients who think our technological advances are nothing more than fancy toys, but in actuality, those fancy toys can save you big time! One example is our CT Cone Beam Scanner (CBCT), which we use for patients who are in need of more detailed imaging than an x-ray can provide. Most dental offices will send you elsewhere to get those scans, but we provide them in the office. Take a look below for some of the benefits for you!

Saved Time
– Generally CT scan are done in specialty offices or at the hospital. This takes up a lot of your time to drive to a new location, fill out a bunch of paperwork, and then wait for your scans to be taken. Generally you end up waiting for the results, as well. CBCT never even sends you out of the office!

Saved Money – As we mentioned above, requiring a CT scan at another office requires a lot of your time, but also your money. The hospital isn’t going to give you a free CT scan, but when we do scans here in the office, we give you a great price up front. Plus, you won’t be spending money on extra gas or a meal in a restaurant from your unexpected day out.

Immediate Results – Maybe the best benefit of a CBCT is that we get your immediate results within minutes, rather than waiting days for a specialist to send us your images. This means that you get the dental solutions that will benefit your smile quicker.

By keeping a Cone Beam CT Scan in our office, we are benefitting our patients immensely. Quicker work means that your smile won’t be at risk any longer than necessary. Contact us today to set up a consultation or appointment where we can discuss how CBCT images might benefit you. We can’t wait to help you have a happier, healthier smile!
