CBCT Scanning Equipment

At Stourcote Dental Practice, we work to continuously develop and progress our skills whilst investing in the newest and most innovative dental treatments and technologies such as the CBCT scanner. With this type of advanced equipment available onsite – our patients are able to receive the highest quality and most up to date dental care possible all under one roof.

What is a CBCT Scanner?

A CBCT scanner (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) is a state-of-the-art scanning machine that is used to produce precise, high-resolution 3D images of a patient’s mouth including the teeth, jaws, soft tissue and bones – all with high levels of detail.

Using the lowest possible radiation dose amongst products available internationally, the CBCT dental scanner is used as an advanced diagnostic tool to take a 3D CT scan of the patient’s mouth. The resulting images are comparable to medical CT scans.

A CBCT dental scanner has become a crucial tool that can be instrumental when considering complex treatments and surgical procedures. The resulting images can be useful for a wide range of cases, including those that involve:

  • Dental implant planning and placement
  • Diagnosis and detection of infections and tumours
  • Oral surgery
  • Complex endodontic cases
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Periodontal disease

This pioneering technology has transformed the way dentists treat patients, providing a more effective planning process for intricate or potentially complicated cases and allowing for highly accurate treatment simulations.

For our patients there are many benefits of CBCT scanning;

  • It is minimally invasive (particularly beneficial for anxious patients)
  • Provides the patient with an improved understanding of the treatment plan as images can be used to explain how a procedure is going to work.
  • The efficacy of treatment is increased and potential risks and mistakes are greatly reduced.

There are also great advantages for our dentists such as;

  • The images produced are incredibly accurate and detailed, which is beneficial during the detection and diagnosis of oral health problems.
  • Scanned images can be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and can aid in the planning of proposed treatments.
  • Dentists can use the detailed images to talk openly to patients about oral health conditions and more easily explain how treatment will work.
  • CBCT scanners also improve accuracy, as they provide incredibly detailed images and allow dentists to assess the risk of a procedure or course of treatment.
We are currently one of the only practices in Stourbridge to have this state-of-the-art facility in house. Thanks to this technology our highly trained clinical team are able to gain high-resolution images of both upper and lower jaws down to single tooth scan details at ultra-fast speeds.

At Stourcote Dental Practice, we find this technology is invaluable when working with complex cases and surgical procedures such as dental implant placement and bone augmentation. The cutting edge 3D imaging is also a useful diagnostic tool for orthodontics, endodontics and periodontal treatments.

Testimonials

Excellent service and COVID safety all in place. On time appointment and friendly team as always.

Sue, Working Feedback

I have suffered some awful mouth sores over the past week and I was pleased with the very prompt appointment today (Monday) that I was provided with, having raised an online request only on Saturday.
On Saturday evening, one of the doctors (Dr Jandu?) phoned me and helped me with a recommended course of action and he followed through by making me the appointment with Matthew Walker today. I was greeted in a friendly, upbeat manner by the dental nurse and I felt very reassured after today’s visit. Mr Walker will phone me in a week, to see how things are progressing.
Overall an excellent level of care and all “very joined up”.

Brilliant service! I wasn’t a patient at this practice when I phoned for my initial appointment, but I had a dental emergency and was not getting the right care at my previous practice. Stourcote Dental fitted me in for an appointment fast, identified what needed to be done, and sorted me out. They were friendly and caring from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was lovely, I’ve never had such great dental care. I’m terrified of going to the dentist so extra special thanks for taking care of me. I’ll be a lot less nervous when I come back!

Jess, Working Feedback

I’ve been a patient and my children have too and i must say that the reception staff especially Ann are wonderful. So helpful, friendly and polite all the time. Their customer service is second to none.
Viz the dentist I’ve been seeing is amazing so kind and caring and a perfectionist. Boys treatment under NHS has been very slow. There was an admin error at the beginning which delayed their treatment but not sure who’s fault that was but Ann has been a great help moving this forward. Obviously due to Covid its not a priority by any means. Thank you for your hard work and adapting so swiftly all the time.

Alison, Working Feedback

I recently joined Stourcote after a traumatic experience with another dentist. From the outset they were really welcoming & listened to my concerns & demonstrated that they wanted to help.
I’ve now seen Manisha a few times & even though I’m a ridiculously nervous patient (I started crying as soon as I sat in the chair today), she was so lovely and understanding. I felt safe, in control & comfortable.
I will never enjoy visiting the dentist but Stourcote have made it manageable for me, so I can’t recommend highly enough.

Jenny, Facebook Review

Mani and Abby looked after me today and did a marvellous job. Very attentive and cheerful looking forward to seeing their faces in six months at my check up. Keep up the good work.
