Galileos Comfort Plus Cone Beam Scanner
Our cone beam scanner gives us the ability to create a fully 3D image of your teeth, jaws, and surrounding oral structures in as little as 14 seconds. This reveals much more detail about your dental anatomy compared to a typical X-ray, which makes it ideal for planning more complicated procedures such as dental implant placement. With it, we can find the perfect locations within the jawbone to position a patient’s new teeth, all the while avoiding sensitive nerves and blood vessels to make the treatment and recovery process as successful and comfortable as possible. This device also allows us to evaluate the quality of a patient’s airway, enabling us to get to the root of any snoring/sleeping issues. It can help us determine the appropriate treatment so the patient (as well as everyone around them) can get great sleep night after night!
With our intraoral cameras, you’ll finally be able to see your smile from your dentist’s point of view. This small, camera-tipped wand can be effortlessly maneuvered in your mouth and capture high-resolution images of your teeth and gums that can be instantly displayed on a large chairside monitor. These images will make it much easier for your dentist to catch dental issues, plus it’ll help you have a much better understanding of your dental health, which is essential when it comes to making truly informed treatment decisions.
Our office now has an even better way to catch dental problems that might be hidden below the surface of your teeth. With our digital x-ray system, we completely do away with slow, and cumbersome traditional x-ray films and diagnose our patients even faster and with more accuracy.
Compared to traditional, film-based x-rays, digital x-rays are an improvement in every way possible. They create images much faster, they don’t require toxic darkroom chemicals to be developed, and better yet, the machine itself emits up to far LESS radiation than a traditional one.
Plus, because the images are completely digital, they can be easily shared with a patient on a chairside monitor. They can even be color-coded to make them easier to understand. Also, they can be stored indefinitely and sent instantly, which is ideal when it comes to making insurance claims.
Radiation-Free Cavity Detection System
With the Cari-Vu and DIAGNOdent cavity detection systems, we can stop cavities even quicker than before. These tools use a beam of light to scan the enamel that can detect even the slightest signs of enamel thinning—much smaller than can be seen with the human eye. With this information, your dentist will be able to implement conservative treatments to prevent a decayed tooth from ever developing a cavity, saving you from having to get more involved restorative work in the future.
