Planmeca ProMax® 3D

Planmeca ProMax® 3D is a product family consisting of exceptional all-in-one units. With three different types of three-dimensional imaging – as well as panoramic, extraoral bitewing and cephalometric imaging – these intelligent products are designed to meet any diagnostic requirement in maxillofacial imaging. The Planmeca ProMax® 3D family brings together a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) image, 3D face photo and 3D model scan into one 3D image – using the same advanced software. This 3D combination creates a virtual patient in 3D.

Digital X-rays

Our staff knows that a picture is worth a thousand words – especially in dentistry!

Frequently Asked Dental Technology Questions

 

What is the difference between dental intraoral X-rays and extraoral images?

 

Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of dental X-ray. This type of X-ray is where the X-ray film is placed inside of your mouth. 

Intraoral X-rays allow us to see details of your upper and lower teeth and helps detect decay between your teeth as well as changes in the thickness of bone that may be caused by gum disease.

Extraoral images are more commonly used to detect dental problems in your skull and jaw bone.

Extraoral images help us see the entire mouth area, including all teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. These images are very helpful with regards to teeth realignment as well as detect tumors.

How often should you get dental X-rays?

The frequency of dental X-rays can vary depending on your medical and dental history as well as your current oral health condition. Our team is careful to recommend X-rays only as needed. For some patients this can be as often as every 6 months, and for others there may be a greater gap between X-rays depending on your oral examination. 

What exactly is a cavity?

Everyone may know that cavities are bad, but do they know exactly what a cavity is? 

A cavity is actually a small hole in the tooth that develops as a result of tooth decay. When your tooth experiences decay, that decay is actually eating away at the tooth and results in a void space that disrupts the structure of the tooth. 

It’s also extremely important to get cavities repaired.  If they are left un-repaired they continue to grow larger over time and cause increased pain and decay of your tooth.
