Digital 3D X-Rays

Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Smile Designers has on site the GALILEOS® 3D Cone Beam imaging solution from Dentsply Sirona. This technology extends diagnostic X-ray imaging potential for better patient treatment. The visualization tools available in the software assist us with better, more certain diagnosis. They allow our office to coordinate treatment planning with colleagues and to explain treatments visually to our patients with greater clarity and accuracy.

The digital x-ray technology is very comprehensive. Conventional images taken in most dental offices are two-dimensional. At Smile Designers we are seeing things we couldn’t see before.

Digital 3D X-Ray

3D images make X-ray diagnosis, oral surgery, endodontics (root canals) and implant treatment safer, more predictable and faster. The Sirona system provides a three dimensional image of the patient on the computer screen and the surgery is performed virtually for the patient review. This allows for faster, more comfortable surgery.

GALILEOS® not only shows 3D displays in perfect image quality, but also enables more complete navigation and diagnosis than the traditional 2D x-ray films. For our practice, the GALILEOS® 3D Dental Cone Beam solution offers:

  • Low radiation dose (less than a full mouth series of intra-oral film)
  • A quick comprehensive scan of the complete oral-maxillofacial area (14 seconds)
  • Immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment planning in one visit
  • More certainty during surgery
  • Easy sharing of images and diagnostic information with referring doctors

We want our patients to receive the best dental care possible, that’s why we invested in the latest technology in dental diagnostics, the GALILEOS® 3D Dental Cone Beam solution.

Digital Intra-Oral X-Rays

Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.

Dental x-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.
