At Stratford Dental (Carol Stream IL dentist), all x-rays are digital and much faster than traditional dental x-rays.
What exactly is the Galileos Cone Beam CT Scan? It is one of the most innovative diagnostic tools in the dental industry. It produces images that are three-dimensional, allowing us to detect dental conditions. This includes infections and several other conditions that are not visible on dental routine x-rays. Early detection allows for better treatment, avoiding unnecessary procedures and complications. Dr. Brian Evans goes the extra mile and sends these scans to a radiologist to be read for further diagnosis of possible life threatening medical conditions such as carotid arteries. This detection can be life saving in certain instances.
The Galileos 3D images of the bone can be correlated with CEREC images of the teeth. This allows more foreseeable treatment planning for implant placement. This can lead to a simpler implant placement procedure, faster recovery, and a better restoration!

Benefits of the Galileos® 3D Dental Imaging
For any successful dental treatment (general, reconstructive or cosmetic), we need a comprehensive view of the teeth, bone and gums. The unique technology of the Galileos® Cone Beam CT enables us to lower the risk of treatments along with more accurately planning for surgical care. Along with the use of the CEREC technology in our office, the implant placement is directed by the best placement of the restoration. The tooth restoration is designed with the CEREC. The design is then imported into the Galileos® 3D software. With the information gathered, we use it to then plan exact placement of the implants. These scans also allow us the capability to build surgical guides, reducing surgery time and improving accuracy.
This technology of 3D imaging with the new Cone Beam goes beyond conventional diagnostics and treatment capabilities. In just 15 seconds, the Galileos® 3D Dental Conebeam calculates over 300 exposures within the image set!
