CBCT Scanning Facilities at Pure
Pure welcome referrals from dental practitioners for our CBCT scanning facilities here in Truro. We operate an Orthophos XG 3D Scanner, conveniently located at ground floor level and accessible to all patients including disabled and elderly users.
Pure Are Able To Provide You With The Following Digital Images

Temporomandibular joint exposures

We can provide an image volume of 8 cm x 8 cm or 5cm x 5cm, even though 3D X-rays are increasingly becoming established, in many cases 2D imaging still has a rightful place and we welcome referrals for an OPG to be taken.
The Orthophos XG 3D combines a tubehead (0.5 mm focal spot) with a CsI sensor (0.027 mm pixel size) to generate the sharpness and clarity needed for your clinical tasks. The innovative ASTRA software algorithm significantly improves the quality of 2D panoramic images by minimizing black margins around metal fillings and getting rid of excessive contrast that could lead to misdiagnosis of caries.
