Dental Imaging

Dr. French now offers Gendex 3D imaging, which many dentists consider to be the best dental X-ray machine available. This impressive piece of equipment makes it easier and faster to do 3d dental imaging, is less intrusive on our patients, and immediately provides a disc so you can see the results. Here’s some information on the features and benefits of the machine.

Gendex 3D Dental Imaging

Dental X-Ray Machine

The Gendex 3D dental X-ray machine captures images for a wide range of procedures, including

  • Implants
  • Extractions
  • Orthdontics
  • Root treatment
  • General preventative care

It delivers fast, high-quality images that help Dr. French and his staff make even faster diagnoses so that the best course treatment can be determined even more quickly. It generates both 3D images and two-dimensional panoramic projections.

Why 3D Imaging is Important to You

Three-dimensional dental scans allow clinicians to see a patient’s mouth from several different angles. They help them get a better view of how bones are structured as well as where roots are located, increasing the likelihood that your dental treatment will be successful. Because of how clearly the details show up, you’ll be even more confident in your dentist’s decisions. Also, you’ll find your visit much more comfortable – and interesting as well.

This dental imaging equipment uses cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), the newest technology in dental imaging. What this means to you is that you can now sit upright as images are taken of your mouth, the images are much more affordable, and your exposure to radiation is much lower. The images can be used for evaluation before a root canal procedure, to localize nerves for implants and molar extractions, and much, much more. It takes all of the guesswork out of dental services.

This investment in equipment is another example of how committed Dr. Ted French is to not only his patients’ comfort, but their continued care as well. If you would like to set an appointment and see this exciting tool in action, contact us online or give us a call at (817) 461-2843.
