3D X-Ray Imaging in Beverly Hills
At the Beverly Hills dental implant office of Dr. Stuart Shlosberg, we use state-of-the-art dental equipment and technology to ensure your visits are as precise, smooth and gentle as possible. We use the latest GALILEOS 3D X-Ray imaging device by Sirona. This X-Ray allows Dr. Shlosberg and his team to see and assess problems that would often go un-diagnosed with standard 2D technology. Using this machine, Dr. Shlosberg can plan dental implants in 3 dimensions.
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 patient's 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.
No more having to stand in a dark room waiting for your X-Ray film to develop. Secure Smiles uses a digital x-ray which allows our X-Ray to be sent to a computer where it can be immediately viewed. Digital X-Rays have become far superior to traditional methods.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
- Less radiation
- No wait time on images
- Shorter appointmentsImages can be electronically sent (i.e. for second opinions)
- Images can be enhanced making it easier to identify the problem area
Digital Dental Photography
An incredible tool for communicating with patients and labs is digital photography. Before your procedure Dr. Shlosberg and the Secure Smiles team will take before photos using digital dental photography. When treatment is complete we will then take after photos for you to see the progress that has been made.
We have our own in-house dental lab where Dr. Shlosberg does his prosthetic design and preparation work, and where he fabricates dental restorations. He uses high-magnification surgical loupes to craft his restorations with meticulous detail.
