Did you know as part of our suite of services we also provide specialist dental imaging and treatment services?
What is an Xray OPG?
An OPG (Orthopantomogram) is a scan that gives a panoramic view of your jaw and teeth. The scan can provide information on wisdom teeth, bone loss, orthodontic assessment, jaw trauma, dental pain, surgical planning or be used as part of a general dental check-up. The OPG unit is specifically designed to rotate around the patient’s head during the scan and will take approximately 20 seconds.
Curian Medical have access to a number of imaging facilities across the country and have fixed fees in place for Xray OPG.
What is a cone beam CT scan?
Dental Cone Beam CT scans (CBCT Scans) provide high resolution, 3D volumetric images, used in Dental Implant Planning, Orthodontics and Maxillofacial surgery, allowing for more accurate analysis of bone structure and dental/tooth orientation.
The accuracy of a CBCT scan is comparable to medical CT scans but uses a much lower radiation dose but with the added advantage of greater accuracy of bone structures and dental/tooth orientation. The patient sits in a chair, as opposed to lying in a tunnel, and the time for a dental CBCT scan is just twenty seconds.
Whereas typical dental X-rays focus on a small area to produce flat, 2D image, CBCT scan images enable a more complete and accurate 3D images – allowing you to more effectively plan patient surgical and dental treatments.
Cone Beam CT scans can be used in multiple situations and offers benefits to you and your patients across the following areas:
- Dental Implants
- Impacted teeth
- Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) analysis
Curian Medical have access to a number of clinics across the country providing CBCT imaging.
