CBCT is also known as cone beam computed tomography imaging. A CBCT is a safer version of a regular CT scan. One reason it is safer is the reduced amount of time the CBCT takes compared to a regular CT. Due to the shorter time, generally under one minute, there is less radiation exposure for both the patient and the dental technician.
Dentists use the CBCT scan because it is much smaller and faster than a regular CT scan. It is convenient to have in the office and is a great tool to use for all manner of dental x-rays.
Patients do not mind this type of scan since it helps to improve their oral health and is safe.
