We recommend you allocate 15-20 minutes for general examinations and 20-30 minutes for Cone Beam CT examination. The scans themselves only last between 10 and 15 seconds. If you are short for time, recommend to call to make a booking or call ahead even if you want to come on a walk in basis just to check how the appointments are going
A Cone Beam CT (CBC) scan provides high resolution imagery in 3D. In other words, it helps provide more information to the dentist to better help them in deciding the best treatment plan for your circumstance. Most dentists will only refer if they think they need more information before they can properly decide how to proceed with your dental treatment.
While we accept walk-ins for general examinations such as OPG and Lateral cephs, you are more than welcome to call and secure an appointment with us if you are running on a tight schedule. The waiting time for these examinations are generally within 10-15 minutes to be seen. And the actual examination will take you just 5 minutes.
