Low-dose scanning gives dentists is a reliable way to reduce the amount of x-ray exposure their patients receive while greatly improving the quality of the imagery.

By limiting the exposure area to just the jaw and face (maxillofacial area), dentists who have access to new scanning technology can see everything they need to see while offering a safer environment for patients.

This is especially important for parents who are interested in the safest possible dental care for their children.

low-dose-scanningHorton Family Dental now offers on-site cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) that provide the latest and best low-dose scanning technology currently available for dental clinics.  Our CBCT systems rotate around your face, scanning with a quiet, safe cone-shaped beam.


With the digital information this system provides, our dentists can reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of your  teeth, mouth, jaw, and neck.  This excellent image quality helps our dentists provide you with confident diagnostics and very precise dental care.
