XG 3D Cone Beam Imaging Scanner
At Vacek Family Dentistry, Dr. Vacek and our team have a long tradition of incorporating revolutionary new technology to improve the treatment we provide and enhance the experience of our patients in Lincoln and beyond. In keeping with this progressive philosophy, we are extremely excited to introduce the Orthophos XG3D cone beam system from Sirona Dental, which allows us to capture clear, detailed, three-dimensional images that improve our patient education process and make complex dental procedures, like dental implants, more predictable, allowing us to achieve ideal outcomes while making procedures easier for our patients.
How does XG 3D work?
The Orthophos XG 3D system uses a rotating scanner to collect 3D data. It can be used with patients of many different needs, and the entire scan takes only 14 seconds to complete. What’s more, because it relies on digital imaging, the XG 3D system emits much less radiation than a traditional X-ray machine, ensuring the safety of all our patients.
Dr. Vacek will analyze your scan and discuss with you the findings, as the diagnostic capabilities far exceed that of 2D imaging. The images can be viewed and manipulated on a large screen to help you understand your health and possible treatment options, as the images can be enlarge, rotated, and highlighted as necessary. With the help of XG 3D and other technology, you can leave our Lincoln dental office with a clear understanding of your health and potential ways we can help you.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Vacek can actually pre-plan your surgery using our Galaxis software, ensuring ideal placement using a highly precise surgical guide. The XG 3D system allows us to incorporate detailed data from our CEREC technology, so your new tooth can be designed before the implant is even placed! This helps create a predictable guided surgery, whether in our office or with the help of one of our great specialists. Because the planning takes place virtually and well before the surgery, your procedure can be simplified and your recovery minimized greatly.
The XG 3D is one more way that we at Vacek Family Dentistry can make a complex procedure understandable and predictable, and as a result, our patients can look forward to more reliable care, fewer complications, and more confidence in the results.
