Cone Beam CT Scanner
In a continuing effort to provide our patients with the most convenient and safe treatment options, Advanced DDS now provides the Green CT Scanner. Our PaX-i3D Green is the latest dental technology that provides high 3D resolution images in multiple views of your mouth and jaw. The 3D imaging allows for a more accurate imaging allowing our team to determine the best treatment options. The greatest benefit to you, perhaps, is that the Green CT Scanner is 60 percent less radiation than any CT Scanner.
For our implant patients, this also means you no longer need to have your CT images done elsewhere. Your treatment planning from start to finish is all done in our office. This includes taking CT images, placing your implants (with sedation, if necessary), and finishing your final restoration.
Your CT images are the first important step to the proper placement of your implants. Our Doctors will assess your bone density using the 3D images in order to determine the exact placement for the implant or if additional work is needed for bone grafting. Historically, dental imaging has been grainy, making it difficult to read. Sometimes, even images done with a more advanced type of x-ray providing panoramic images can be difficult to use. However, the Green CBCT makes taking the image easier and quicker for you.
