3D Imaging For Diagnostics
For precise dental diagnostics, we utilize state-of-the-art 3D imaging software. A 3D image offers us highly detailed information, much more than what an X-ray or Panorex image can provide. We use 3D imaging as part of many of our services, including CT surgical planning and dental implant procedures (such as Teeth-in-a-Day).
DIGITAL X-RAYS & PANOREX IMAGES: SEEING IS BELIEVING
At Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons of Houston, we’re pioneering a new way to look into your mouth. It’s quick, comfortable, and highly accurate.
What is Digital Radiography?
Digital radiography allows us to easily identify internal and external structures and provide you an accurate dental diagnosis. This technology allows us to immediately share our findings with large and precise images on a monitor that you and your surgeon can study together, right from your seat in our surgical suite.
By using this technology, we’ve simplified and our standard of oral care, helping us to make better treatment decisions together. We truly believe in educating our patients so that they understand their condition and our treatment recommendations. Digital radiographs help us do just that.
Digital Radiography Offers Less Radiation, Impressive Results
X-rays have been traditionally used to see what the naked eye can’t. They were developed using hazardous chemicals and required extensive filing systems to store them. Patients were exposed to dangerous radiation and had to view the images on a light board.
We’ve found that Digital X-rays and Panorex images offer a host of advantages over traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs are:
- Environmentally safe
- Better suited for patient education
- Easily transferred
- Copied more accurately
- Safer for patients
