Cone Beam CT Scan

Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. 

Our 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The Planmeca Promax 3D Mid scanner allows us to choose the resolution, radiation setting and the scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern, whether it may be a cracked tooth requiring a high resolution or facial fractures amenable to the ultra low dose setting.

This system brings the 3D diagnostic technology to Southwestern Oral & Maxillofacial Surgical Centres, providing full maxillofacial visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and helps us to better explain the particulars of your case, as well as address any questions you may have. Dr. Sadek, Dr. Paulo and Dr. Paterson can use this technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
