Cone Beam

British Hungarian Medical Service is proud to introduce the Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System for dental and maxillofacial imaging.

Our practice in London has its own Sirona Orthophos 2D &  3D x-ray and CT unit for the comfort  and convenience of patients, a significant investment both in costs and technology!

Why Dental CT Scan Is Really Essential in certain dental cases?

The dental CT image offers you a third dimension. It's easy to understand and allows you to see clear anatomy that has previously not been available with traditional scansor X-rays.

This further enhances our client's experience as he is safe in the knowledge that he is getting the best available technology.

Why panoramic X-ray image is not enough?

Cone beam images provide undistorted and accurate views of the jaws.

Another key difference is that CT images provide different views (cross-sectional, axial, coronal, sagittal, etc.)

This allows CT images to seperate out the various structures in complecated cases.

This cutting-edge technology produces better results, reduces costs and provides more accurate information for expanding general dentistry, oral surgery and implantology.

We are very proud to announce our recent purchase of the very best in digital technology, a cone beam CT scanner (Sirona Galileos®).  Since January 2015, London-Dental-Implants provide a dental imaging service for our patients on site at our practice in Battersea, saving both time and money. Since CT imaging outperforms all other existing scanning methods it is considered the best standard of care in implant dentistry.

The CT scan technology extends diagnostic X-ray imaging potential in the fields of implantology, endodontics, periodontics and oral/maxillofacial surgery.

Why needed?

CT scan is needed to assess and plan your dental implant treatment safely and accurately. It is also essential to identify structures e.g. nerves, root tips and sinuses. With the cone beam CT image, we can present you with a 3D, visual image of your situation and it enables us to precise placement of implants prior to surgery. Cone beam CT scans ensure predictable, long-lasting results.

What are the benefits?

With cone beam CT imaging you can experience:

  • Lowest radiation possible
  • Quick (14 seconds), easy and comfortable scan of the mouth, face and jaw
  • Immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment planning in one visit
  • More security and less time during surgery
  • Easy sharing with patient or referring doctors

Is it safe?

Cone beam technology emits very small amounts of radiation for the CT scan, so we can say that CT scan is very safe! In fact, the imaging requires less radiation than a traditional X-ray and the cone beam technology emits 80 to 100 times less radiation than a traditional medical Ct scan of the same area.

We want you to receive the best dental care possible, that’s why we invested in the latest technology in dental diagnostics, the Galileos® 3D Dental Cone beam.
