Why a 3D X-ray?
The planmeca promax
The particular benefit of this device is that it can capture four different dimensions depending on your need, thus avoiding unnecessary radiation. In fact, we can take about three teeth at a time, or one side of the jaw, or the entire jaw, or both jaws.
In addition, the device can take a panoramic x-ray.
The members of my team are trained to use this device properly. You will not only receive a professional service but also a fast and accurate service.
It is best to have all your dental x-rays in one place, integrated into your file, to avoid unnecessary multiplication. This is more efficient, safer and more economical.
What is the radiation output from this device?
A panoramic x-ray emits 26 μSv; a full mouth, 171 μSv. In comparison, some medical scanners emit up to 2,500 μSv. So we can see that the benefits of this technology far outweigh the risks involved.
The ability that this device gives us to be able to better plan treatments and allows us to avoid the unfortunate consequences of undetected dental disease.
The clinical use of the scanner is acknowledged throughout the world.
