Galileos 3D Cone Beam
At Koplon Implant & Family Dentistry, our Galileos 3D Cone Beam, otherwise known as our 3D x-ray, allows us the flexibility to complete a comprehensive scan of your entire mouth. Two dimensional x-rays only show images of your individual teeth, while 3D x-rays enable a more thorough and complete navigation and diagnosis of many other head and neck conditions not seen with traditional 2D x-ray films.
With our CEREC technology, we can take a digital impression of your mouth, digitally design your restoration, mill your new ceramic crown and place the crown in one sitting, rather than having to send your physical impressions out to a lab to make your crown. Our tooth-colored restorations are metal free, long lasting and extremely durable. With our same-day crowns service, there is no temporary crown involved and you can leave our office the same day with your permanent crown and tooth.
The results from 3D Imaging enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits.
What are the benefits to having a 3D X-Ray?
3D x-rays provide our team a more comprehensive view of your entire mouth which helps us locate issues that aren’t always identifiable in a 2D image. We in turn are able to coordinate treatment planning and dental services to our patients in more depth and can explain treatments with greater clarity and accuracy. Other benefits include:
Lower radiation dose (less than a full mouth series of intraoral film)
A quick comprehensive scan of the complete oral-maxillofacial area (14 seconds)
Immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment planning in one visit
More certainty during surgery
Easy sharing of images and diagnostic information
iTero Intraoral Scanner
We've taken the next step in the progression of delivering crowns and straightening teeth in the quickest, most advanced way possible. Our new iTero video scanner now eliminates the need to take impressions (molds) in most cases. This intraoral scanner literally takes a video scan of your mouth, providing highly accurate virtual impressions. The benefit is that we no longer need to put goopy stuff in our patients' mouths, often causing a gag reflex, to get these impressions. This scanner improves the patient experience while at the same time increasing the quality of the impressions we use for implants and crowns.
