CT Scanning at Woodborough House
Using our CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scanner, we’re able to create incredible 3D images of your teeth, gums, and jaw. We’re the first UK dental practice to pioneer the innovative Pax-Reve 3D scanner.
Unlike X-ray, CBCT scanning distinguishes between different types of tissue, enabling us to see the structures in and around your mouth in much greater detail.
CBCT scanners use a safe low dose of radiation to create high-resolution 3D images that will inform many of the treatments and procedures we offer. These incredibly accurate visualisations also allow us to diagnose oral health problems and detect structural abnormalities.
The advanced imaging processing system and autofocusing technology allow us to see structures within the mouth in far greater detail than can be achieved using any other equipment.
Throughout your treatment with us, we can use these images to measure the effectiveness of the steps we’ve already taken and plan future stages.
The Pax-Reve3D scanner is fitted with an integrated voice and camera system. This allows us to communicate with you at all times. The scanner can be easily moved, allowing us to adapt to the best position. It can also be used with wheelchairs.
Introducing the iTero Intraoral Scanner
Here at Woodborough House, we’re proud to be among the first UK dentists to innovate practices through the use of the impression-free iTero intraoral scanner. We believe that, through the use of the latest technology, we can provide you with unparalleled care.
iTero utilises revolutionary technology to create dental impressions. Instead of using dental trays and putty, iTero takes digital images of the patient’s mouth. These impressions can be used to create a wide range of different dental devices, such as crowns, bridges, aligners, and dentures.
Using iTero ensures impressions are extremely accurate, eliminating the need for re-appointment. As dentists, we often need to take impressions of a patient’s teeth, and the success of the treatment we’re providing will depend on the accuracy of that initial impression.
Not only is the traditional method of using dental putty for taking impressions less accurate, it can also cause discomfort for the patient. The iTero intraoral scanner eliminates discomfort, reduces the time spent in the dentist’s chair, removes the need for mess, and improves accuracy.
Developed by Cadent, iTero technology uses a digital scanner to produce a perfect digital replica of your mouth. Using these images and measurements, our expert dental technicians can then accurately manufacture dental devices which will fit your mouth perfectly, improving the outcome of your treatment.
iTero not only makes the life of our dental team and technicians easier, but it also greatly improves your experience.
