Can a Philosopher Keep Your Smile Healthy? | Tyngsboro Dentist

Galileo was a philosopher that helped shape the world we know today. Can he help you get a healthy smile? Not exactly. But thanks to the ever-changing advancements in dental technology, there is a piece of dental equipment that will give your dental appointments a revolutionary improvement. Not only can it give your dentist better visuals of your smile, but it will flag any issues that are beginning to develop in the future. That equipment is the Galileo 3D CT scanner.

You may be thinking, why do we need 3D scans of my mouth? Interesting enough, these scans will give your dental professional a live feed of your dental anatomy from various angles. The various perspectives allow for a better view of the structure of the bones, making it easier to locate root fractures and canals. Even more importantly, 3D scans provide dentists the ability to gain more accurate measurement of their patient’s dental structure. These scans can be used in both diagnosis and treatment planning to increase its possibility of success and allows dental practitioners to be more confident in preparing for various dental procedures, such as extractions, root canals, implants and so on.

The use of 3D dental scans also creates a more engaging environment where dental practitioners and professionals can assess their patient’s dental health, while at the same time the patient can also ask questions about what they see on the screen. This allows for constant communication between patient and doctor, allowing for a more comfortable dental visit for the patient, which may help put them at ease, especially those who suffer from dental anxiety.
