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.
Elite Smiles of Pflugerville Reviews
I stumbled upon Dr. Tuckers dental office and it was one of the best accidents. Dr. Tucker is very personable, takes time to talk to his patients and the staff are very nice. Elite uses state of the art equipment and the office staff are welcoming. Can’t go wrong with Elite Smiles.
My first visit was excellent. I had a great experience during my visit and this team has the best attention to detail. Not just administratively but directly with my oral care. No regrets changing my DDS. My experience was so great I am making my wife change her DDS to Elite. Her appointment is scheduled for next week. Happy & Clean Smile Patient
I came with a missing front tooth that couldn’t be repaired with placing a new crown. I had a really negative experience with another area dental office and subsequently went without a front tooth for nearly 6 months. Dr Jordan, after listening to my whole sad story, assured me that he could do the extraction of the remaining broken root and do an implant! He felt so bad that I had been without a remedy for so long, he offered to fit me into his schedule and do the procedure immediately! He also modified a retainer I had fashioned with a fake tooth so that it looked more natural and fit better. It looks great while I wait for the bone graft to heal and I will have a new crown placed! The staff is amazing. He has a great team that works together! They made my experience one the best I’ve ever had in a dental office! I highly recommend Dr Tucker and his entire staff from Lisa at the reception desk to Dawn an incredibly kind and highly capable dental assistant!
If anyone wants a great Dentist in Pflugerville I recommend Dr. Jordan Tucker. He is really nice and his dental hygienist did a great job cleaning my teeth. She was very thorough and explained everything. A lot of cleaning and barriers are in place if worried about Covid-19. Im immunosuppressed and was very happy at the quality and the amount preventive measures they had in place.

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
