Getting the full picture with Mobile Dental CBCT Scans
Traditional dental X-rays capture two-dimensional (2-D or flat) views of hard tissues (such as bone and teeth, for example). However, Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans capture three-dimensional images that are more clear, with unlimited perspectives. Mobile Dental CBCT Scans produce 3D, high-resolution imaging and has become a necessity and reality in dentistry. These details allow your doctor to make an accurate diagnostic and choice of treatment.

Patient Information. Our Scanning Protocol
Mobile 3D Imaging will travel any where in southern California. For instance, your dentist’s office, home or place of business. It’s our convenience and customer first focus that simplifies what is otherwise a prolonged, time consuming, and open ended process. Imagine the convenience of having a Mobile Dental CBCT Scan performed in our state of the art mobile platform in your driveway!
From start to finish the whole appointment should take 15-30 minutes.
The scan will be complete in 18-28 seconds. We use automatic dose exposure. This technology automatically adjusts the radiation dosage according to the patient's age and size. As a result, radiation exposure for this type of scan is minimal. It is equivalent to being outdoor for 6 days or 1/10 of a chest CT scan.
The scan is only of your head and neck allowing you to stay fully clothed.
You will have to remove all metal from your head and neck including metal dentures, glasses and all jewelry.
Mobile Dental CBCT Scans are NOT invasive.
You are positioned in a seating or standing position and the scan goes around your head for 10 to 20 seconds. It is not a tunnel machine if you are worried about claustrophobia.
You should NOT be scanned if you are pregnant.
Payment for scans are due at time of service. Patient is responsible for payment unless otherwise indicated by your doctor. We accept all major credit/debit cards. There is a cancellation fee unless notified 24 hours in advance. Mobile 3D Imaging is a fee for service imaging company and has not contracted with any insurance company. The company does not have a billing department allowing us to save on costs and keep our scan pricing low.
The images will be sent to your doctor to be evaluated. If you wish to retain a copy for yourself, please request it at time of scan.
