Creekside Dental Clinic is proud to offer this state-of-the-art diagnostic service, which is the latest in dental diagnostic imaging. We are using the Sirona 3D XG Galileos Cone Beam CT.
Cone Beam CT technology allows precise 1:1 measurements that other forms of dental x-rays do not allow. This is extremely important for treatment planning for some wisdom tooth extractions and dental implant cases to allow your dentist to measure exact locations of important anatomy such as nerves and blood vessels and for the best possible placement of the dental implants. It allows your dentist to determine if any special considerations need to be taken into account before surgery is even started.
Cone Beam CT technology proves to be a valuable tool in root canal treatment in difficult cases because it reveals much more information about internal tooth anatomy that cannot be ascertained by traditional dental x-rays.
Cone Beam CT technology is extremely valuable in helping diagnose pathology or disease that is not always evident on traditional dental x-rays. It is not needed in every case if pathology is easily evident but your dentist will request one if feels it will help with a diagnosis.
The Galileos software that drives the Sirona 3D XG allows us to burn a copy of your imaging to DVD if you need to be referred to a specialist for treatment that we cannot provide. This will save you from extra costs and another x-ray.
