Dr. Michael Harris has been placing implants and serving patients with the highest level using the Galileos® 3D Dental Conebeam by Sirona. He is one of a few of doctors in the area with this technology. What is this Wonderful diagnostic tool that gives us complete accurate treatment?
Galileos 3D Imaging In the News
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) allows 3-D visualization of the entire lower half of the human jaw. Galileos technology gives us the advantage of the diagnostic X-ray imaging capabilities in the fields of:
- Oral/maxillofacial surgery
- Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
- Oral Pathology
The scan is a low-dose, 14 second 3D scan obtains a large amount of x-ray information with perfect image quality which can also be saved on a disc. All of this is accomplished with much less radiation exposure produced by medical CT scans, less than a full mouth of conventional X-ray films!
Structure of both hard and soft tissues associated with sinus related issues can be more completely seen and delineated. For pin point location of impacted teeth near major nerves, visualization of oral pathology, facial trauma and understanding of developmental deformities, 3D imaging has no match in the 2D world.
3D Scan Shows Implant Planning
The greatest excitement to the Sirona’s Galileos 3D imaging here at our office is that it is the only Cone Beam system that seamlessly integrates with CEREC CAD/CAM technology allowing for efficient, precision dental implant planning, surgical placement for implant supported single and multiple tooth replacements. We can give you a diagnosis on whether you’d be a good candidate for many procedures at the time the Scan is checked by Dr Harris and Dr Larashi.
Benefits of the Galileos 3D advantages include:
- Exceptional low exposure amount
- A very simple and comfortable straight forward experience for you
- Dr. Harris and Dr Larashi are able to diagnose immediately
- Extreme accuracy for the highest level or dentistry for you
- The image can be burned to a disc to be shared with other doctors
