Cone Beam

A cone beam is a type of 3D dental imaging which provides high resolution images with low radiation exposure.

Image Modality Dental Cone


  • There is no preparation required for a Cone Beam scan.

    You will be asked to remove any jewellery or metal items from your head and neck area including hair accessories, dentures and plates.

  • You will be asked to sit inside the scanner while the Cone Beam machine moves around your head collecting the necessary images.

    These images allow your specialist to view your teeth and facial bones, quickly and easily at any angle, which allows for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to be developed.

  • This scan will take approximately 10-15 seconds, during which you must remain totally still.

  • Due to the dose of radiation emitted, you will not be able to have this scan if you are pregnant.
