CT Scans


3-D x-rays for enhanced accuracy

     

One of the many technological advances which has emerged in dentistry in recent years is precision imagery in the form of three dimensional x-rays, also known as CT scans. At Cranmore we use state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment which helps us to diagnose and treat our patients to the highest standards. We are one of only a few practices in Northern Ireland to have a CBCT scanner.

  • The main advantage of CT scanning machines is that they emit a low dose of radiation while taking a very detailed and precise x-ray of your mouth area. These images are then uploaded in a software programme that David Nelson and the team use to plan treatments for patients who require dental implants, for example. Since the images are of such a high quality, surgery can be planned virtually by pinpointing in 3D where the implants are to be placed, leaving no margin of error when it comes to the actual procedure.

If you are interested in any of our advanced dental treatments, you can rest assured that we have invested in superior equipment and have well trained and experienced staff on hand to restore your smile. For David Nelson, successful implant dentistry starts with using the best diagnostic tools available, and CT scanning represents the gold standard for dental imaging.
