Cone Beam CT and digital OPT scanning service 

Our Cone Beam CT scanner provides high resolution, volumetric images that are complete, three-dimensional views of critical anatomy, allowing for a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation.

The accuracy of Cone Beam CT is comparable to medical CTs but uses a much lower radiation dose.

Our dental scanning service is really easy to use:

Benefits at a glance:

  • More thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation
  • Accurate diagnosis
  • Accurate treatment planning
  • Easier to explain diagnosis to patients
  • Easier to discuss proposed treatment to patients for more informed, faster decision making
  • Higher uptake of treatment plans

Treatment-specific benefits

CBCT for dental implants

The quality of CBCT scans allows you to plan and place dental implants much more accurately, offering you benefits in diagnosis through to treatment and planning.

Cone beam for orthodontics

Cone beam images are clear and accurate, allowing for improved orthodontic diagnosis and treatment as you can assess tooth relationships much more accurately and plan accordingly.

CBCT for impacted teeth

CBCT gives you a precise 3D view of impacted molars/teeth within the alveolar bone, showing their position with regards to adjacent teeth and proximity to vital structures such as the inferior dental nerve, sinus walls, and other vital structures.

CBCT analysis

Cone Beam CT assists you in both detecting and evaluating possible problems for your patients, thanks to accurate measurements of bone and jaw deformities. This allows you to assess bone lesions and changes of the jaw and detect cysts, tumours and disease. CBCT should not be used as a screening tool but where you have good clinical evidence to suggest that pathology may be present and CBCT can be justified.

Green innovation for low dose radiation

1 Scan, 2 Images

One scan with a PaX-i3D Smart gives you not just a CT image but also an Auto Pano image. This means that patients who require both images do not need to undergo two X-ray scans. Also, CT and Auto Pano images are displayed within the One Viewer feature.

Low dose, high image quality

As the pioneer of the Green CT, Vatech’s Green technology reduces the radiation level of the PaX-i3D Smart without reducing image quality.

Smart innovation for accurate diagnosis

Anatomical FOV 12×9

The innovative FOV of the PaX-i3D Smart provides an arch-shaped volume, which shows a wider view of dentition compared to other devices of the same FOV. Normally, a FOV 10×8.5 image shows tooth #8. However, when the tooth is lying on its side, there is a high possibility that the tooth will be cut out of the image. The ‘arch-shaped volume’ eliminates this possibility and shows the hidden dentition area.

Smart Mar

Practitioners want to diagnose with a CBCT that doesn’t get affected by metal artifacts and while still producing high 3D image quality. SMART MAR provides this powerful capability to its users.

Smart innovation for new three-dimensional era

Real 3D software, Ez3D-i

Ez3D-i supports the whole process of a surgery. Specialised functions for diagnosis and consultation provides convenience for all.


High Quality of VR Smart Clipping One Click Section.


3-Step Implant Simulation Top-down Implant Simulation Implant Collision Detector.


Implant Clipping 3D Bone Density EzCodi.

Auto cross-sectional 3D PAN tab

The 3D PAN Tab of Ez3D-i makes everything quick and smart. With a volume panorama mode, Ez3D-i makes lingual-side diagnosis possible. Also, locating a lesion during an endodontic treatment is effective and accurate from this view, whether it is near the apical or not.

3D and 2D in one viewer

No need to utilise 2 different software programs. Help patients better understand the images.

One-click region of interest navigation

Takes 1 second for cross-sectional images. No need for complicated training courses.

Implant simulation with 3D PAN

Easy multi-implant simulation insertion of implant, based on a restoration. Various modes for exact bone density.
