As a dental practice owner, you’re likely confronted with new investment opportunities on a regular basis. Dental technologies, in particular, have the potential to make major improvements in your patient care, such as the type and/or volume of procedures you can provide. Many of these technologies are significant investments for your practice but frequently deliver on their promise of a positive return on investment (ROI).
If you’re considering making an investment in a new technology for your practice, you’ll likely want to research and think about the financial, workflow, training, and any additional factors that will influence your decision.
One of the most popular investments dental practices are considering today is in dental imaging equipment, particularly 3D cone beam dental systems (CBCT). 3D imaging enhances a doctor’s ability to diagnose and treat patients, with greater visibility into the patient’s anatomy in a three-dimensional view.
In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of an in-house CBCT machine and why this technology is such a popular investment among dental professionals.
If you’re getting started with dental 3D imaging for the first time, one of the most common reasons that dental professionals seek CBCT technology is to be able to offer optimized imaging for specialized treatments, such as dental implants, to their patients. Increasing your in-house capabilities allows you to minimize outsourcing, keep your schedule full, service more patients, and improve patient care at the same time.
It’s also important to keep in mind that most dental CBCT systems also have a dedicated 2D panoramic image setting for capturing traditional 2D scans as well. In this instance, upgrading will not limit the capabilities of a practice; it will only expand them. This flexibility also enables dental professionals to adhere to the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, while administering dental X-rays to patients.
What Does a CBCT Machine Cost?
Prices on these systems have become more affordable since the early days of CBCT thanks to increased competition to meet increased demand. Regardless, CBCT systems are still sizable investments that require proper planning and consideration.
If you’re purchasing an in-house CBCT system to expand your service offerings, oftentimes you’ll be able to recoup your investment return quickly. However, you need to be prepared with financing and with your budget.
CBCT machines, regardless of manufacturer, are typically classified into one of three FOV (field of view) categories. As the field of view increases, so does the cost of the machine, and just like buying a new car, other factors like optional features, upgradeability, and warranties will impact the list price.
Today’s market offers CBCT machines at a range of prices. Generally, the range you can expect to pay is between $50,000 and $100,000 for a small to mid-sized CBCT machine. This ultimately varies by brand and included features.
When considering the price you’ll pay for a dental CBCT machine, it’s important to evaluate the total cost of ownership compared to the potential return on investment you’ll see from decreased outsourcing and additional service offerings.
