This 3D imaging system revolutionizes how we treat our patients: It helps us to diagnose more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. With precise, crystal-clear 3D images, this innovative new 3D system offers our team powerful insights into your dental regions of interest. This capability is essential for a wide range of diagnostics that, in turn, help us devise more accurate treatment plans and answer any questions you have about your care and treatment options. Reduced Exposure to Radiation Because our new 3D system allows technicians to target a precise area for exposure, you will be exposed to significantly less radiation other dental 3D units that lack this capability. The system combines speed, image quality, and precision placement to dramatically reduce the occasional need for retakes. By using less radiation dose than conventional CT scans, our 3D system better helps us adhere to the ALARA Principle – or, “As Low As Reasonably Achievable” – which we follow to ensure we take every precaution to minimize your exposure to radiation when obtaining the necessary diagnostic images needed for your treatment planning.
With digital x-ray technology, we are able to achieve maximum image clarity with the least radiation exposure available in the industry.
