Using 3D X-Rays for Dental Implants
3D X-Rays are far superior to standard 2D X-Ray imaging. As we mentioned above, the GALILEOS 3D X-Ray imaging can be used in the planning and implementation process of dental implants. The technology allows for extreme accuracy and meticulous treatment planning. Dr. Shlosberg is able to virtually plan out the implant process in 3 dimensions on the computer, before ever performing the procedure in the patients mouth! This not only reduces the number of surprises that could be encountered during the surgical process but also eliminates the need for exploratory surgery.
Dr. Shlosberg also uses a computerized anesthetic delivery system, CompuDent, to help with injection precision and painless local anesthesia.
3D X-Rays may not be necessary for all implants and other dental procedures and each patient will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
