Have you ever seen a film at an IMAX movie theatre? The experience is breathtaking. With IMAX, you’re not just watching a film – you become part of it. And, once you’ve experienced the difference, you’ll never want to see a movie the “old way” again. At Parkview Dental we’ve invested in a 3-D imaging machine that makes regular X-rays seem like child’s play, and takes you into the enhanced realm of modern dentistry. We’re talking about the new Sirona Galileos – it’s like IMAX for your mouth!
Unlike traditional X-rays, the revolutionary Galileos imaging machine rotates 360°, snapping away nearly 800 digital images that capture not only your teeth and all root canals, but your jaw and skull as well – and best yet, it’s all in full color.
Its a view that cannot be duplicated by even the best digital 2D X-ray machine in existence. The Galileos also has the ability to superimpose an image of your face atop any scan, allowing your dental team to forecast how orthodontic and maxillofacial procedures will affect the shape of your face. This degree of exacting detail is simply not possible with traditional X-rays, and we’re proud to offer it in our office.
Galileos is often used prior to:
- Jaw Reconstructive Surgery
- Dental Implant Surgery
- Root Canals
- And, Extractions
It can also be used to diagnose:
- Nose and Sinus Issues
- Sleep Apnea
- TMJ Issues
- Suspect Pathology
- And, Undiagnosed Pain
If you are planning any of the above procedures, we might recommend the use of the Galileos to get the most complete view possible of your mouth. Not every dentist can provide this level of thorough dental care, and we are pleased to offer this improved technology to you at Parkview Dental.
