Technology

Introducing our new 3D imaging unit designed by a Star Trek fan! Our doctors and clinical staff spent the day training on our new low dose radiation X-ray machine.

What is it?
A CBCT scan, or cone beam computed tomography scan, is a type of X-ray that uses a digital computer and a rotating machine that produces a cone-shaped X-ray. This way, the medical professional can see clear, 3-D images of tissues, blood vessels, organs and bones. This is far beyond the abilities of a simple X-ray.The iTero Scan is a specially-adapted, hygienic scanner called a "wand" that takes thousands of pictures of your teeth with medical-grade low-radiation lasers. As we scan your teeth, a 3D model of the inside of your mouth will emerge on the iTero screen. We can use this technology instead of gooey, messy impressions and we can let you know in less than 10 minutes how your smile can be transformed with Invisalign! We can also use the scan when making crowns - without the messy impressions and a faster return to patient (less time in a "temporary"!) Radiation exposure is less than you would get from walking outside in the sun.

What will our dentists use this for?

  1. yearly patient x-rays (all ages)
  2. diagnosing TMJ, jaw bone issues, root canals, airway problems
  3. patients who have trouble using traditional bite wing sensors for X-rays due to bone growth or gagging issues can now have those issues relieved!
