Sirona Galileos Cone Beam digital x-ray technologyFor many people, getting dental implants can be a life-changing decision. Those who may not have had teeth for some time could regain the ability to enjoy the food they once did while at the same time greatly improving their oral health. With an improved smile that can be indistinguishable from a natural one, it is no wonder why many people are choosing implants as an effective means of restoring their teeth. Palani Center for Dental Implants can make it even easier for you to decide by including modern cutting-edge technology during your examination.

How Digital Technology Benefits Implants

Before we begin any type of surgery, we will use a special type of x-ray to take a closer look at what we are working with. Dental cone beam tomography, or CBCT, can help provide a greater level of accuracy when it comes to the placement of your implants. Through the use of Galileos Cone Beam, we can produce a three-dimensional image of the inside of your mouth. This means not only can we see the teeth and bone of your head, but we can also detect the nerve pathways and soft tissues as well.

Through digital imaging, you will also be able to see what we see, which means you can become more involved in the procedure. We can enhance areas and give you a more detailed outlook on how your mouth could be restored. Many patients find that having the details explained in real-time helps them to feel comfortable asking questions and getting answers, which in turn can ensure successful treatment with excellent results.

What Happens During an X-Ray?

Many people may still have anxiety due to the radiation that can be used in x-rays. In truth, there can much less exposure through the Galileos Cone Beam than many of the other CT scans available, and because it uses a focused beam, it could reduce the amount of scattered radiation. After the examination, it may help you to know that there is no radiation left behind in your body.

A scan is completely painless and creates several different views or angles that may not otherwise be seen through standard methods. You will need to remove metal on your head, such as pins, jewelry, glasses, and hearing aids, so they do not interfere with the scan. The machine has an arm that will rotate a full circle around your head to take hundreds of pictures which will be combined to create the three-dimensional image that will be used for your treatment planning.

Because everything can be made digitally, that means all of your files can be stored and accessed with the click of a button. With faster and more accurate procedures for dental restoration, you are likely to spend less time waiting at the dental office and more time grinning from ear to ear.

Benefits of Galileos Cone Beam Technology

The benefits of Galileos cone beam technology include:
•  Reduced exposure to radiation—Other CT scans may results in overlapping radiation. The Galileos focused x-ray beam reduces scattered radiation, resulting in better image quality.
•  CT scanning is painless, noninvasive, and extremely accurate.
•  A single scan will produce a wide variety of views and angles. This allows us to provide a more detailed evaluation and precise treatment plan.
•  Cone beam scans allow us to image bone and soft tissue at the same time. This is revolutionary.
•  Cone beam scans provide more information than conventional x-rays.
•  No radiation will remain in your body after a CT examination.
•  The data is stored digitally, making it environmentally-friendly, and easy to share with other specialists and dentists.
