We have a state-of-the-art Planmeca ProMax® 3D CT Scan. We use it primarily for dental implant placement, but we also utilize it in some root canal therapy procedures, as well as bone cyst and tumor diagnosis. This CT scan gives us a more precise view of the area that requires treatment. We also use this machine to take our panoramic outer-head X-rays.
There are many advantages to using digital X-rays. We are able to view them immediately which saves time for the patient as well as the staff. We can enhance the images for better viewing for the doctor and the patient. It eliminates the need for chemicals and a dark room used to develop film X-rays, as well as reducing radiation exposure for the patient. It is also more convenient in cases where we need to refer patients to an oral surgeon.
