Better Imaging for Better Results with the CBCT Scan
You want to benefit from high-tech dentistry, but not in an impersonal and clinical-feeling environment. We understand. Here at Elite Smiles of Pflugerville in Pflugerville, TX, we blend the very human elements of compassion and professional skill with the latest dental technology so that our patients can enjoy the best of both worlds. One of the most important and versatile pieces of technology in our office is the CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) Scan machine, which helps take diagnostics and treatment planning to the next level.
About the CBCT Scan
You might be familiar with the CT scan, which has long been used in the medical field to evaluate tissues that a typical x-ray will not capture. However, a standard CT machine emits a fan-shaped x-ray beam and requires the patient to move through the machine, which is certainly not comfortable or convenient. The CBCT features a cone-shaped beam that can scan the target area while the patient remains comfortably seated. Furthermore, a CBCT x-ray results in significantly less radiation exposure than standard CT scanning.
The CBCT scan procedure is fast, efficient, and noninvasive. You simply need to sit still for a few moments while the machine’s computerized arm smoothly circles around your head. It will capture a comprehensive, 3D image that can then be enlarged and digitally enhanced.

Dr. Jordan Tucker and his entire staff are amazing! I have never had a better experience at a dentist office than I did at Elite Smiles. Their compassion and understanding for the patient is indescribable. The dental work they do there is spot on! Dr. Tucker definitely has a patient for life!
Dr. Tucker and his staff are amazing and genuine, they made me feel extremely welcomed and my experience with them is the best dentist experience Ive had without a doubt! The payment options they provide are outstanding and they explained things very thoroughly, being confused or unsure is NOT an option. I felt and still feel very comfortable with them so if anyones looking for a good dentist that cares about their patients youve come to the right place. Thank you Dr. Tucker and all of your staff for being so genuine, I will definitely be leaving here with an elite smile!!
I started seeing Dr. Tucker back in 2018 in Temple when I started considering improving my smile. I had a lot of fillings as a kid that were now cracked teeth needing addressed first. Dr. Tucker did an amazing job fixing everything, and saved me a ton of money. He started his own office about an hour away from where I lived shortly after completing my work. Once I was ready to start the cosmetic work I went to 3 different dentists in my area who were okay, but I didn't feel great about moving forward with them so i decided to make the drive to see Dr. Tucker and he literally changed my life! I am in love with my my new smile and grateful for Dr. Tucker!
This dental office is amazing. It all starts as soon as you walk through the door with a warm welcome. They treat you like a family member or friend and not just a patient. Amber is so kind. Micha my hygienist explained the entire process of the cleaning to me. Made me feel comfortable and relaxed.

How CBCT Technology Is Used in Dentistry
This amazing machine provides Dr. Tucker with a wealth of data about the oral structure, allowing him to “see” below the surface. Unlike a standard flat x-ray, the CBCT provides highly detailed, three-dimensional images. Furthermore, it shows nerves and other soft tissues that are virtually impossible to evaluate with an x-ray.
What Is CBCT Used for?
- Evaluating bone structure and identifying nerve locations for optimal placement of dental implants
- Identifying problems in the jaw joint (TMJ), bone tissue, root canals, and much more
- Improved accuracy of diagnosis and precision of treatment
