Digital X-Ray – CT Scanner
Mayberry Dental uses digital X-Ray technology to ensure your health and safety.
We use a process called Digital Radiography, or Digital X-Ray, to take pictures inside your mouth. This method of taking x-rays is done instantly via a computerized x-ray system. Unlike conventional x-rays, you no longer have to bite down and hold still on rigid film plates. Now, we simply position a tiny digital sensor inside your mouth and take the picture.
By using this technology, your exposure to radiation is reduced by 90% compared to conventional x-ray equipment! It also allows us to see in greater detail any areas of periodontal disease, unerupted teeth, abnormal growths and the overall condition of your mouth.
The newest addtion to our digital X-ray family is our 3D Imaging Cone Beam CT Scanner.
Sirona 3D imaging with new Cone Beam technology goes beyond traditional diagnostics and treatment capabilities by calculating a large volume 3D image set, more than 200 exposures, in a single low-dose 3D scan of 15 seconds or less.
Sirona’s GALILEOS 3D imaging technology extends diagnostic X-ray imaging potential exponentially, particularly in the fields of implantology, periodontics, oral/maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics.
The visualization tools available in the software enable us to reduce risk in different treatment modalities, plan surgical interventions, coordinate planning treatment and explain treatments to patients – all with greater clarity and certainty.
Using a direct connection to our computer equipment is all it takes, so we don’t have the previous waiting time for x-rays to develop. With these digital pictures, we can instantly lighten, darken, or view your teeth as a 3-dimensional image on the computer screen. Therefore, Digital X-ray speeds up diagnosis time for your dentist … and gets you on your way faster!
Mayberry Dental has used Digital X-ray machines for over 10 years.
