Welcome to OPDSF Orthodontics, where the future of orthodontic imaging meets today’s advanced care. Our state-of-the-art CBCT Image Technology, in combination with the Invisalign iTero’s 3-D interactive images, provides comprehensive insight for accurate diagnosis and effective treatments.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a cutting-edge 3-D imaging method that offers a comprehensive view of dentofacial structures. It operates using a cone-shaped X-ray beam, rotating 360-degrees around the patient, to capture precise images, which are then reconstructed into detailed 3-D visualizations.
Benefits of CBCT Image Technology
- Low Radiation Exposure: CBCT technology emits up to 150 to 200 times less radiation than traditional CT scans.
- Accurate Diagnosis: From sleep apnea indicators to jaw joint evaluations, CBCT allows for precise and comprehensive assessments.
- Minimized Radiation: At OPDSF, we follow the advanced ALADAIP protocol, ensuring the lowest possible radiation dose for each patient. Plus, our Eco scan can further reduce radiation exposure by up to 40% compared to regular scans.
- Advanced Protective Measures: During exposure, we use lead-free protective garments to further minimize radiation.
