In order to provide you with the best possible dental care, it is essential that our dentist is able to accurately evaluate and diagnose your oral health. One of the state-of-the-art tools that we use at our practice is the Orthophos SL 3D imaging program, which is a unique type of panoramic X-ray. While standard X-rays and imaging provide us with a view of few teeth and the supporting bone structure, this particular tool allow us to view the entire upper and lower dental arches, and your entire facial structure in one detailed image.
The Orthophos SL 3D imaging system allows our dentist to more accurately and efficiently perform many tasks, including:
- Asses the need for orthodontist and evaluate the progress of treatment
- Diagnose impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth
- Analyze the development of periodontal disease
- Evaluate the jaw joint and diagnose TMJ disorder
- Detect oral cancer
- Plan dental implant placements
- Diagnose cavities (tooth decay) and other dental problems
- Evaluate the extent of dental and/or facial trauma
- Detect abscesses, cysts, and tumors
Using the Orthophos SL 3D imaging system is both quick and comfortable. The machine simply rotates around your head as your stand in place, providing our dentist with a high-definition, nearly instantaneous 3D replica of your oral structure.
