Image is Everything- 3D That Is!
- Posted on: Jul 25 2013
As you know, we have always strived to keep up with the latest advances in technology and dentistry. The doctors and team are constantly attending, as well as, teaching continuing education courses. We are excited to announce that we now have the ability to take Dental CT Scans right here in our office! As technology now permits, we own a state of the art 3D Imaging Machine to assist in implant dentistry, difficult root canal diagnoses, cancer screening, root fractures, difficult pain diagnoses and much more. This new 3D Cone Beam Machine has a very tiny beam of energy focused on just the right areas of concern, so it’s far less radiation than a medical grade CT Scan. It’s about the equivalent of one or two dental x-rays or a day of background sunshine! In the past if we wanted to place a dental implant, we would send you to a Radiology Center for the Scan. Now we take the Scan in just seconds right here in the office, make the diagnosis and it allows for immediate implant placement . This technology has revolutionized Dentistry and our ability to treat and diagnose with pinpoint accuracy! This new equipment also takes the traditional Panoramic (2D) x-rays that we have been always able to take, but now it is also digital. The panoramic xray allows us to see the entire mouth in one xray and it is used to make evaluations for Oral Surgery (wisdom teeth), Orthodontics and TMJ disorders.
