All x-rays taken in our office utilize digital technology, which minimizes radiation to our patients and greatly speeds up processing time. We also now offer 3D imaging technology via a high resolution cone-beam CT scanner (CBCT). This technology provides unprecedented detail and computerized virtual analysis for diagnosis and treatment planning of implants, bone grafts, complex impacted teeth, jaw malformations, pathologic lesions, trauma, and other cases.

Our surgeons utilize computer-assisted planning for complex implant, jaw repositioning, facial reconstruction, and trauma cases.
