Questions and Answers
Is the radiation from a 3D Dental head scan dangerous?
No. According to the NHS, the head scan gives only 6 to 30 days of average background radiation and poses no risk to the general health of the patients.
Is there anything I need to do before a 3D scan?
The only thing that you need to do is remove all of your jewellery, hair accessories, and clothing with metal attachments (metal distorts the image produced by the scan).
How long does it take to get the results?
The 3D dental head scan procedure only takes 20 minutes during which it is essential that you stay absolutely still. Once this is complete, we will transfer the images digitally to your dentist who will interpret them for you and discuss the results.
