The lat­est CT Scan­ner technology

We use the lat­est CT scan­ner tech­nol­o­gy to help plan your treat­ment. A CBCT (cone beam com­put­erised tomog­ra­phy) scan­ner pro­vides supe­ri­or 3D med­ical imag­ing. We use this tech­nol­o­gy along­side nor­mal X‑rays to improve our treat­ment planning.

How does a CT Scan­ner improve care?

Before CT scanners were readily available in dental practices, we had to rely on simple X-rays to plan your care .  CT scans are capable of capturing a 3D image of the teeth , the bone and all vital surrounding structures like nerves and blood vessels in one image. 

With better imaging available, dentists can better assess and plan for dental implants. It also ensures they are fully informed about potential complications before work begins, which allows for careful planning to minimize the risks.

Prepar­ing for your CT Scan

If you have a CT scan in the hospital, this can sometimes be a bit daunting for some patients and may involve lying down . A dental CT scan is different as it focuses on the head and neck region so you will remain standing. Your dentist will ask you to remove anything that might obstruct the image, including piercings, necklaces, hair grips or hearing aids. The entire process takes just a few seconds and is non-invasive.

When is a den­tal CT scan required?

A dental CT scan is often the first step in planning dental implant treatment. It allows your dentist to assess the health and density of your jaw bone to determine if this is sufficient to support implants. It also gives your dentist an accurate view of the surrounding vital structures, including your sinuses, nerves and location of the blood vessels. This can help to inform the treatment plan.

Here’s what to expect

Curi­ous about the treat­ment jour­ney and what is includ­ed? Here’s what you can expect when you choose The Implants and Cos­met­ic Smiles Clin­ic as your treat­ment provider.

We will tell you during your consultation if you require a CT scan. This is a common step at the start of a dental implant treatment to plan things carefully and give you an accurate assessment.

We will give you instructions on how to prepare for your CT scan. The scan takes just a few seconds and is non-invasive. The scan is completed standing up and it is very comfortable.

Once we have digital images of your mouth and jaw, we can share the results of our findings with you. We will then use your CT scans to help formulate a treatment plan suitable to your needs.

Fre­quent­ly asked questions

We’ve answered the most com­mon patient ques­tions below. If you still have ques­tions about your den­tal treat­ment, get in touch to book a free consultation. 

The scan takes just a few minutes to complete. You will need to sit still for the scan, but you will be seated rather than lying down.

A CT scan costs more than a conventional X-ray, but it is included in your  free consultation and treatment plan. The cost for a CT scan starts at around £150.

It isn't dangerous to wear metals during a CT scan, but it can obstruct the image and conceal important parts of the scan. This is why we ask you to remove your jewellery and metal accessories before we begin.

The level of radiation you will be exposed to is not a dangerous amount so the procedure is very safe. A dental CT scan will expose you to lower levels of radiation than a full body CT scan as it is very localized to the area we are dealing with. If you are pregnant, you should mention this to your dentist before we begin.

  • I have visited this clinic a few times now and I wouldn't go anywhere else. It is an exceptional clinic. From the minute you walk in the atmosphere is calm and serene and any anxiety you have is quickly dissipated by the lovely staff there. Mr Azhar Bakhshi feels more like a friend sorting a problem for you than a dentist - his manner is professional and warm and you can tell he is devoted to delivering the best results. I am beyond happy with what he has done for me .

  • I was made aware of this clinic by way of recommendation in the first instance. I required the services of this clinic and decided to make contact. From my initial query getting in touch with the clinic’s receptionist Kirsty, I was met with a friendly and informative staff team. This followed through the various processes with my doctor, Dr. Aryan Gharakhani and his team Roxana and Samiya who listened to me and explained very clearly what my options were and outlined my treatment plan. They allowed me time to process and inquire further to satisfy myself that I am confident with my plan. To be confident in this process is to impart your trust to your clinician and I am happy to say that Dr Gharakhani did a fantastic job and I am delighted with the results. If the need arose in the future, I would confidently use the services of this clinic and would highly recommend them to others if you or someone you know are looking to regain your beautiful smile. From my experience, you won’t find a more proficient and amiable team.
