Advanced Diagnostic Technology
As part of our diagnostic technology, one of the most technologically advanced digital X-ray systems available is the ORTHOPHOS XG 3D device. This machine takes incredible 360 degree images of teeth, head, sinuses and bones. ORTHOPHOS XG 3D provides dental X-rays that help our team see new areas of the mouth better than ever before.
Our patients are enjoying the benefits from having their periodontal issues caught earlier rather than later. By catching small issues before they become big problems, we are able to provide the best care possible. The ORTHOPHOS XG 3D system provides a three-dimensional panoramic view of the patient’s mouth. With this system, we are able to see the patient’s entire upper and lower jawbone, temporomandibular joints, nasal sinuses and the mandibular nerve
The new standard of care for placing implants is having a 3D Cone Beam image.
One of the most beneficial aspects of this technology is its capability to view the upper and lower jaw bones more clearly. The images provided through this machine provide a vastly improved view of temporomandibular joint, making it easier to diagnose TMJ/TMD. The system also helps our doctor locate the following conditions:
- fractures or trauma in the jawbone
- gum disease
- impacted wisdom teeth
- dental restorations
Thanks to ORTHOPHOS XG 3D we are now capable of viewing specific structural problems, infections and any asymmetry in the area. There are several additional benefits to using ORTHOPHOS XG 3D. This innovative X-ray technology emits up to 80% less radiation than a full set of traditional dental X-rays. This system also saves time, money and is a great way for us to “Go Green.”
“Everyone was very professional, yet very laid back, making an unpleasant procedure much easier to have done. The follow-up call from the doctor showed that he cares about his patients.” Stephanie C.
