Do you deserve the latest technology? This 3D imaging scanner is designed for dentistry. The precise imaging permits me to diagnose from accurate, undistorted, one-to-one images. This results in greater diagnostic accuracy and greater diagnostic confidence. However, it means even more than that. 3D offers the ability to enhance treatment planning, and obtain more consistent patient outcomes. Beyond the clinical aspects, Galileos is also a wonderful patient education tool. For the first time patients can see their anatomy in accurate real-life perspectives that allows them to understand their own oral health.
This improved comprehension leads to a greater bond between patient and doctor. Patient positioning is quick, just relax, and 14 seconds later the scan is complete. Imaging software does the rest. Yes, any view we need, on demand, from the same single scan. The system also includes treatment planning software, integrated implant planning, and the ability to order surgical guides. This means that there will be no surprises when we proceed with your treatment. At Dean Cosmetic Dentistry Center we chose the Galileos 3D product because of the very low radiation exposure compared to other brands of dental 3D and up to 100 times less than traditional CT scans taken at hospitals. The 3D scan with Galileos is less than half the radiation from a traditional dental film full mouth series.
- Most accurate treatment planning
- Low radiation dose
- Fast and easy
- Done here during normal appointment time
- Comprehensive dental evaluation finds 25% more abnormalities than traditional 2D
- Lower cost than medical CT
- Easy to understand
Our office is committed to providing our patients with the absolute best standard of care. Our office is equipped with the Galileos 3D CT Scanner, which we use to obtain 3D radiographic images of your jaws and facial structures. The Galileos 3D CT Scanner was developed in Germany as a spin off from Siemens Technology. This scanner allows us to get accurate images with the lowest does of radiation and one of the quickest scan times of any similar scanner available today. By combining this low-dose technology, our office can quickly and accurately review anatomic structures in 3-D perspective. This makes our procedures more accurate and predictable.
This scan takes about 15 seconds to take and about 4 minutes to process or render in the office. Also, we do not have to send our patients out for scans to radiology labs, thereby making it more convenient and cost-effective.
The radiation from the Galileos Machine scan is 29 microseverts or 2.9 millirem. Therefore this is less radiation than a standard full mouth set of dental x-rays. This radiation exposure is a fraction of the radiation from a medical CT scanner.
Some facts about radiation exposure:
- Daily background radiation- 8 microseverts or about 1000 microseverts/year
- Full mouth dental periapical films- 150 microseverts
- Panorex- 10-15 microseverts
- Digital panorex 4.7-14.9 microseverts
- iCAT 10 second scan-34 microseverts; 20 second scan- 68 microseverts
- Medical CT scan- 1200-3300 microseverts
- A round trip flight from NY to LA is 40 microseverts (flight crews and pilots get 2000-4000 microseverts/year)
Cone Beam 3D technology allows the merging of dental implant and restoration planning that is state of the art. This allows accurate tooth replacement and restoration by allowing virtual implant placement on your 3D images. So this information is used to make a surgical guide. Now allowing precision placement of implant with minimally invasive surgical techniques. So this allows the patient to recover quicker and makes dental implant placement more successful while minimizing complications. The study obtained from the Galileos 3D CT Scanner also allows Dr. Dean the best possible information for diagnosis.
