Are CBCT Scans Safe?

Cone beam computed tomography, or CBCT is one of the most impactful innovations in the last decade of dentistry. It’s a certified effective oral health analysis technique and considered by most to be a medical standard for its efficacy. 

Radiation doses from dental CBCT exams are typically lower than other CT exams. Dental CBCT exams, meanwhile, usually deliver more radiation than a conventional dental x-ray. That said, the FDA has specific x-ray imaging guidelines for parents and health care providers to reduce radiation exposure to children. And, provided it is used under standard radiation conditions, will not pose a significant risk to adult patients or medical staff.
