Galileos 3D Imaging at Champions Dentistry
X-rays are vital to dentistry. In reality, X-rays are a crucial process for any medical field. Without them, medical professionals would be blind to underlying problems and severely limited in their ability to treat patients. In fact, X-rays aid with just about every part of dentistry and are an important component of every procedure. As this technology bears such an important role in our field, we believe it is time to take it up a notch in terms of X-ray technology. Why bother with outdated traditional X-rays when today’s world has so much more to offer? That’s why at Champions Dentistry we use Galileos 3D imaging.
This innovative technology is a safer, clearer and more advanced version of traditional x-rays. Its reduced amount of radiation is sure to put any anxious patient at ease. It is even a more ideal x-ray for pregnant women. Here are some reasons that our Galileos 3D imaging provides safer x-rays during pregnancy.
Galileos 3D Imaging: Safer X-Rays During Pregnancy
1. Reduced Radiation
The biggest danger of undergoing an x-ray during pregnancy is that you can potentially expose the fetus to radiation. However, with our 3D imaging, the amount of radiation used can be lowered. In fact, the dose of radiation can be reduced by 50 percent with this machine. We always suggest telling your dentist if you are pregnant and need an x-ray. However, dental x-rays for pregnant women are generally safe, especially with our 3D imaging that dramatically reduces the amount of radiation used.
2. Reduced Time
Our Galileos 3D imaging works by scanning the entire tooth and jaw area. During this time, multiple pictures are taken and reassembled to provide a three dimensional view of your oral structures. And the best part? The entire process takes only 14 seconds. The image is immediately projected onto a screen for you and your dentists’ viewing. This means less time exposed to radiation, less waiting for results and shorter appointment times.
3. Higher Quality Diagnosis
With our 3D imaging system, the images are clearer and provide a multi-dimensional view of your teeth and jaw. This allows the dentist to see all angles of your mouth for a higher quality diagnosis. Because pregnancy takes a toll on your oral health, a fast and trustworthy diagnosis can protect you and your baby’s health.
At Champions Dentistry we are proud to offer the latest advancement in digital x-rays. Our Galileos 3D imaging is beneficial for all of our patients, especially for women needing x-rays during pregnancy.
