Digital X-Rays (CBCT)

Unlike traditional x-rays, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone. This gives much more information than a conventional dental x-ray, allowing us to provide a more precise treatment plan.

Digital x-rays have many advantages over conventional (film) x-rays:

  • Digital x-rays produce up to 80% less radiation
  • Digital x-ray images are sent directly to a computer and can be viewed immediately.
  • Digital x-rays offer better visualization with the ability to enhance and enlarge the image.
  • Digital x-ray images be corrected without having to make another x-ray exposure.
  • We can offer prints or digital copies of x-rays

Digital Intraoral 3D Scanning

We deploy state-of-the-art Planmeca intraoral scanners.

This technology provides three dimensional images of both your teeth and soft tissues within a single scan.

Digital intraoral scans are much more comfortable than conventional dental impressions.
Patients are relieved from the gag reflex often experienced from conventional impressions and also the taste of alginate material.

Furthermore, a digital impression can be taken in a matter of seconds with a greater accuracy.
