3D Imaging with Galileos

To provide you with the best dental care available, we have recently invested in the latest technology in dental diagnostics, the Galileos® 3D Dental Cone Beam by Sirona. Galileos® 3D imaging provides pin point accuracy so we can offer the most EFFICIENT, SAFEST and ACCURATE dentistry available anywhere today.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT) allows 3-D visualization of the oral and maxillofacial complex from any plane. Galileos technology broadens the diagnostic X-ray imaging capabilities in the fields of:

  • Implantology
  • Endodontics
  • Periodontics
  • Oral/maxillofacial surgery
  • Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

Special visualization software tools enable us to locate anatomical structures typically hidden by traditional x-rays can be viewed in 3-dimensions, allowing pinpoint placement of implants. Locating nerve channels, accurately measuring bone width and 3D views of sinuses makes your surgery more precise, faster and more successful. We can also coordinate treatment with colleagues and explain conditions and treatments to you with greater clarity and accuracy than ever before.

This is the same technology used by advanced medical centers.

A single, low-dose, 14 second 3D scan creates a large volume of x-ray information with perfect image quality. All of this is accomplished with much less radiation exposure produced by medical CT scans, equivalent to only 4 dental bitewing films!

Structure of both hard and soft tissues associated with sleep apnea, sinus and airway related issues as well as TMJ/TMD and jaw joint arthritic conditions can be more completely seen and delineated. For pin point location of impacted teeth near major nerves, visualization of oral pathology, facial trauma and understanding of developmental deformities, 3D imaging has no match in the 2D world.

3D Imaging with Galileos3D Scan and Implant Planning

And most exciting, Sirona’s Galileos 3D imaging, is the Cone only Cone Beam system that seamlessly integrates with CEREC CAD/CAM technology, our other virtual treatment planning system, allowing for Guided Implant Placement which is the efficient planning, placement and restoration of dental implants. These procedures can be performed with levels of accuracy not attainable with older technologies. And viewing hidden, obscured areas allows for better all-around diagnosis and dental treatment.

Galileos 3D advantages include

  • Lowest radiation possible
  • Quick, easy and comfortable scan of the mouth, face and jaw
  • Immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment planning in one visit
  • More security and less time during surgery
  • Easy sharing of images with referring doctors
  • Placement of implants is safer, more accurate and more predictable than ever before
  • Fewer appointments
  • Surgery is virtually performed on the images before the procedure even starts
  • Prepare for extractions, place implants and prepare root canal therapy with accuracy
  • Allows visualization of areas hidden by traditional x-rays
  • Easier to uncover obscure, chronic sources of pain
  • The same technology used for pinpoint accuracy in locating tumors by advanced medical centers
  • Open, stand-up unit, no enclosed spaces
