Here at Lister House Dental Centre, your comfort is our priority. We have equipped our practice with the latest in dental technology designed to give you a positive experience, whilst also supporting your Harlow dentist in providing first-class treatment. Read on to discover how our team of professionals can advance your treatment though the use of our new iTero Intraoral and CBCT scanners.

What is CBCT?

Cone Beam CT scanning (CBCT) is a quick and painless dental imaging technology that creates a 3D view of your mouth! This type of comprehensive 3D scanning is used as a secondary form of X-ray and provides our dental team with more detailed information, allowing for a complete evaluation of your teeth, bone, and soft tissue. CBCT is invaluable for reconstructive and implant specialists as it aids in the diagnosis and treatment planning of more complex dental procedures.

What are the benefits of CBCT?

  • The heightened precision and accuracy mean we can measure every angle of your dentition and jaw bone – this helps your dentist plan implant procedures through virtually mapped placements!
  • A pain-free, quick and comfortable experience – no need to lie-down or use bitewings as the cone beam system automatically rotates around your jaw
  • Allows for quick location of the tooth, which may be close to a nerve or the sinus, assisting your dentist in the assessment for extraction if necessary
  • You’ll be able to see what your dentist sees! We believe the more our patients are informed about their own dentition, the more confident they will be regarding their treatment
