Digital X-rays


A dental x-ray is an essential diagnostic tool for any oral surgeon. In the past, x-rays required film slides, complete with a long and tedious development process. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their numerous advantages over traditional methods.

Intraoral x-rays are the most common type of dental radiograph. To conduct a digital intraoral x-ray, a small electronic sensor is placed in the mouth. The sensor allows us to capture images of your teeth, roots, and supportive bone without the use of film slides. The position of the electronic sensor is dictated by the type of intraoral x-ray you need.

Digital x-rays omit up to 90% less radiation than a film x-ray. They also allow us to magnify or manipulate the image to gain a more comprehensive overview of your oral structures. Without the film development process, we can retake an x-ray instantly and share them electronically, all without affecting the environment.

CT Scan and 3D Imaging


Hospitals and imaging centers have relied on CT scans or CAT scans, for decades. CT scans are X-rays, which, with the help of computers, are able to generate cross-sectional and 3-D views of body structures. A 3D CT scan provides the best images to better diagnose and treat your condition.

Our oral surgeons have been using 3D imaging techniques for several years to provide them with a detailed view of the mouth and skull. CT scans can be safely completed in our office, in just a few minutes. Using digital imaging technology, far less radiation is needed than even routine dental x-rays.

How are CT scans used?


CT scans allow our doctors to better assess specific areas of the mouth, jaws and facial skeleton.
Some of the ways in which CT scans are applied in Oral Surgery include:
•  Assess the suitability of the jawbone where the implant will be placed.
•  Determine the location of nerves so that surgery can be performed safely.
•  Precisely decide on the appropriate size and type of implants.
•  View exact orientation and position of each tooth.
•  Perform "virtual surgery" on the computer, so that the procedure is planned in advance, from start to finish.
•  View impacted teeth.
•  Diagnose jaw cysts and tumors, and other diseases.

How are CT scans performed?


CT scans are quickly and safely performed in our office in just a few minutes. The scan itself takes less than 30 seconds. During the scan, you will be seated in the scanner, which will move around your head. Our patients report the CT scanner is comfortable because it provides an open environment, meaning that claustrophobic feelings are eliminated. The CT scan is an incredible tool that is minimizing the cost of dental treatment, reducing treatment time and enhancing the end results of dental surgery. If you have questions or concerns about CT scans or 3D imaging, please contact our office.

Intraoral Scanner


An intraoral scanner is a high-tech device that captures digital impressions of the teeth and mouth. The days of using gooey, runny impression materials are over. With our intraoral scanner, we can capture 3-D images of the teeth and mouth without uncomfortable impressions trays that often cause gagging. This method is also much more accurate than traditional impressions and the data can be sent to the dental lab or shared with your dentist electronically.
