Dental CT Scan and Digital Radiography

Our Digital X-ray setup at Carson & Carson, DDS

Digital X-Rays


A Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan is a specialized X-ray technique that is capable of creating high-resolution, cross sectional images of the body in 3D. CT Scans produce images that appear as slices and can be used in a wide variety of medical and industrial applications. There is always a risk involved with exposure to the radiation associated with X-ray technology, but a majority of medical professionals are in consensus that the advantages of obtaining these images far outweighs the potential harm of exposure to relatively insignificant amounts of radiation.

Looking for a cutting-edge dental practice that uses the latest technology in dentistry? Visit Carson & Carson, DDS, the Oxnard dentists with decades of experience with CT scan and X-ray machines.

Purpose of Dental CT Scans

CT Scans provide incredibly detailed 3D, high resolution pictures that can provide unique and potentially life-saving information about virtually every part of the body including the:

  • brain

  • heart
  • lungs
  • liver
  • pancreas
  • intestines
  • kidneys
  • bladder
  • adrenal glands
  • spinal cord
  • bones
  • blood vessels
  • limbs

A huge advantage of getting a CT over a normal X-ray is that a CT Scan can capture both soft tissues and bones in a single scan giving medical professionals more information to work with in a shorter time. For this reason, CT Scans are particularly useful in: diagnosing muscle & bone problems, guiding surgical procedures, pinpointing internal injuries or problems like infections, blood clots or tumors, and the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer.


Benefits of Dental CT Scans

  • CTs are a highly accurate & pain free scanning experience.
  • There is no lingering radiation after a CT has been performed.
  • A single scan provides many analyzable angles and images.
  • Allows more accurate planning for impacted teeth and the placement of dental implants.
  • Professional & experienced evaluation of nasal cavity, nerve canals, jaw, and sinuses.
  • Provides imaging for diagnosing: temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), jaw tumors and dental infections, tooth orientation problems, and locating the source of oral pain.

The Process & Things to expect of CT Scans

A dental CT Scan is  a quick and easy procedure – our CTs only take 10-15 seconds and have low radiation levels due to high sensitivity sensors. The scan is completely painless, but you may hear some clicking or whirling noises coming from the scanner during an exam. There may be periods of time where we ask you to hold your breath as well. Most importantly, it is critical for you to lie as still as possible during a CT Scan to ensure a high accuracy of measurements taken.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.

A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.

This dental office is beyond professional. A landmark of our city, to say the least. Dr. Carson has been serving our community for quite some time, with true care and concern for his patients. If you want a true dental experience, then I would highly advise you to make an appointment with them 🙂

Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.

Both doctors, father and son (Dr. Leroy and Dr. Derek), are the best of the best. I have been to different dentists due to change on my insurance coverage, but i keep coming back to Carson and Carson (even if it means paying out of pocket) because they take care of the issues others can not or are not willing to. Furthermore, the staff is truly amazing, friendly, knowledgeable, professional. I am in good hands, my family's hands.
