Dental X-Ray

3D Digital Dental X-Ray System

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.

Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ certified
Advanced X-Ray Technology

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.

3D Dental X-ray
Better Diagnose and Treatment
three-dimensional detail

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.

Only Takes Few Moments
A Very Comfortable Experience

Taking a dental X-ray in Buford, GA 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.

3D Dental X-Ray Machine by Planmeca

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.

  • 90% less radiation
  • Quicker dental appointments, since the dentist does not have to wait for the film to develop.  Digital Image appears instantly on the screen.
  • More accurate diagnosis. It allows the dentist to manipulate the images and they can really see more of the tooth structure and the contrast between different areas of the tooth than they could in traditional film-based radiography.  They can magnify the image, they can colorize it, and use different measuring tools for more accurate diagnosis.
  • Can be e-mail to a specialist or insurance company.  For instance, if your dentist sees something that looks like an abnormality, he/she can e-mail the digital image to a specialist to get a second and third opinion quickly.
  • Decay between the teeth
  • Bone loss
  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Fractures in bones or teeth
  • Tumors (Cancerous & non-cancerous)
  • Poor tooth and root positions
  • Problems below the gum line or inside a tooth
  • And More
