Focused on Your Smile!

We are committed to providing our patients with the most advanced diagnostic tools available, which is why we are excited to offer services utilizing state-of-the-art CT scanner technology. This powerful imaging equipment allows us to capture detailed 3D images of your teeth, jawbone and soft tissues, enabling precise planning and effective treatment for a variety of dental concerns.

Understanding CT Scanning in Dentistry

A CT (Computed Tomography) scanner is a specialized type of X-ray machine that produces comprehensive, three-dimensional images of your oral structures. Unlike traditional X-rays, CT scans offer a much higher level of detail and clarity, providing invaluable information for diagnosis and treatment planning. This technology is particularly useful for implant placement, evaluating jawbone health, diagnosing pathology and more complex dental procedures.

What to Expect During Your Visit

When you visit our dentists in Gambrills, Maryland, for a procedure requiring a CT scan:

  • We will explain the scanning process and answer any questions you may have.
  • You will be positioned comfortably as the CT scanner rotates around your head, capturing multiple images from different angles.
  • The process is quick, painless and non-invasive, typically taking only a few minutes to complete.
  • Afterward, we will review the images with you, discussing the findings and how they impact your treatment options.
