Utilizing 3D cone bean technology allows for minimally invasive treatment with exceptional accuracy and precision. Our digital 3D dental x-ray machine uses 75 percent less radiation then traditional X-ray machines.
As part of our commitment to provide you and your family with the best possible oral healthcare, we have invested in a state-of-the-art 3D dental imaging system from Planmeca. This piece of dental technology not only provides a wealth of information, but it does so with the lowest radiation possible, and that’s important to us. In fact, we are a Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ certified practice.
Our 3D imaging system allows us to see your anatomy in three-dimensional detail. It can be enlarged, rotated, and divided in any direction, thus revealing critical information not always seen in 2D images. Having this kind of technology at our fingertips allows us to better diagnose and treat a wide variety of dental related issues with accuracy and predictability.
This advanced technology allows us to provide dental implant treatment here in our office. Dental implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth. They feel and function like your own tooth and support the health of the jaw bone.
Taking an X-ray image with our new Planmeca unit is also a very comfortable experience. You can either stand or sit in the unit while the imaging carousel revolves around your head. It takes only a few moments and for those patients who have a gag reflex, this offers an excellent alternative to sensors inside your mouth.
This system is also intelligent. It has features not found on any other system that really help elevate our patient care. For example, patients who find standing still to be challenging, our system compensates for movement during the scanning phase. This eliminates the need to retake an image.
The radiation level produced by Digital x-rays is lower then the natural radiation we are exposed to in the environment. They are very safe for the patient and the environment. The digital x-ray image is captured electronically, so there is no need to develop the x-ray films; therefore, eliminating the disposal of harmful waste and chemicals into the environment.
