| Sirona Galileos 3-D CT Scanner
At Perio Central, Dr. Steven Aeschliman utilizes 3-D analysis for outstanding patient outcomes. As the first comprehensive 3D digital diagnostic and treatment solution, GALILEOS combines X-ray imaging, visualization, diagnosis, planning and surgical guide implementation into integrated and time-saving processes. The 3-D Sirona Galileos CT Scan is a proven tool which is regarded as the standard for patient care.
GALILEOS provides an exceptionally clear scan that improves the opportunity for early detection of problems. A single 14-second scan is all that is required to provide all of the clinical views necessary for making informed diagnoses and confident treatment plans from start to finish.
Dr. Aeschliman will view a patient's scan while doing surgery, enhancing his ability to increase surgical accuracy, and minimizing the risk of surgical complications such as nerve or blood vessel damage. Learn more at Sirona.com.
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with X-rays before they become problems will save you money in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive, costly procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect:
• Internal tooth decay
• Cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth)
• Tumors, both cancerous and non-cancerous
• Impacted teeth
At Perio Central, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based X-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from traditional film x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen X-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately.
Digital radiography has greatly enhanced the practice of dentistry. It allows the patient and the doctor to see images of the teeth in higher resolution in a large format for easier detection of problems, all while decreasing the radiation exposure to the patient. The process we use further defines the radiograph, resulting in clinically meaningful images that are sharp, detailed and rich in contrast.
Images are available instantly after exposure, eliminating the wait and effort spent developing and mounting X-rays. If an image needs to be retaken, it can be done immediately. Digital format also allows us to send and receive your images electronically for consultation that can be presented to you quickly.
