Our office employs many types of new technology. These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.
Our VA Tech Cone Beam technology with a sensor by Toshiba provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago. Our scanner is able to isolate and scan only the areas of interest.
We use Straumann Co-diagnostics software to analyze the area of interest.

Digital x-ray’s reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays while providing superior diagnostic capability. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen improves the patient’s ability to understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film as the images display directly on the computer screen. It’s also a very green technology. There is no longer a need for film, developer and other chemical waste. It’s better for you and it’s better for the environment!
