Referral Radiography Timing Information

Restorative treatment : If referring a patient for restorative treatment such as an aesthetic makeover, crown and bridge work or fabrication of new dentures, an up to date OPG is required.

Implant treatment: Volumetric scans as well as an OPG are required when referring a patient for implant treatment.

For edentulous patients an up to date CT Scan of the appropriate jaw is required.

For single or multiple tooth replacement an up to date Cone Beam Scan is required, please ensure a radiographic stent is in place where possible. Teeth requiring extraction should be removed and the site/s left to heal for three months prior to having the scan. If considering immediate placement in the anterior segment, a scan with the tooth in situ is acceptable.
