What Are CT Scans?

At Advanced Smiles, we use the latest technology to capture detailed oral images in order to provide a quick diagnosis and more accurate treatment options for Frisco, TX patients. 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a type of dental imaging that provides a 360-degree view to reveal any damage to the teeth, mouth, gum tissues, nerve pathways, and bone structures. CBCT scans are quick and comfortable, and while radiation is used, it is much less than that of traditional CT scans. The 3D images that are taken can even be used to make more detailed dental crowns, onlays, inlays, and implants. Schedule your dental exam with Dr. Ernest De Paoli by contacting our office today.

What to Expect from A CT Scan

It's common for our team at Advanced Smiles to recommend a CBCT scan prior to placing dental implants, but this advanced technology can also detect a number of other oral issues, including temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), bone loss, gum infections, issues with tooth roots, and more. To perform the scan, you'll simply relax in the exam chair, and your dental provider will ask you to remain still. During a 20 – 40 second process, the machine will rotate around your head to capture several full-mouth images from various angles. Once the images are ready, Dr. De Paoli will be able to design your customized treatment plan for your implants or another oral procedure. The detailed images also provide our team with information regarding any potential complications ahead of time, allowing for a smoother treatment experience overall.

My first cleaning appointment with Christie was painless. She is a very knowledgeable and skilled dental hygienist. Her attention to detail was on point. She was friendly and made me feel comfortable. I had been using a water pick to floss. She gave me a demonstration on how to properly floss my teeth with dental floss which has made a big difference. I highly recommended her for your teeth cleaning needs. Alison is exceptionally knowledgeable about the industry. Since I don’t have dental insuranceshe introduced me to a discount dental that Advanced Smiles offers. She was patient explaining the plan and I signed up.
