Maxillofacial Radiology

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)

Our 3D scans are taken with a Vatech Pax-Reve cone beam CT Scanner. Our machine has a free field of view (FOV) that allows scanning volumes as small as 5cmx5cm and as large as 15cmx15cm with every FOV size in between. Research has shown that small FOVs are generally associated with smaller radiation doses than large FOVs. This is the reason why we use the smallest FOV compatible with the examination needed. The 5cmx5cm FOV is useful for a single tooth implant site assessment. With a Voxel size of 80μm, the resolution of the 5cmx5cm FOV is excellent. A radiographic report signed by a licensed oral radiologist is provided with all CBCT examinations requested by our referring dentists.

Panoramic Radiograph

Our digital panoramic radiographs are taken with a Vatech Pax-Reve. The images can be printed on photo paper or placed on a CD. A radiographic report signed by a licensed oral radiologist is provided with all panoramic examinations requested by our referring dentists.

Interpretation of Radiographs

We offer a radiographic consultation service. Intraoral radiographs, panoramic radiographs, and CBCTs can be sent for radiographic interpretation. A radiographic report signed by a licensed oral radiologist is provided with all radiographic consultations from our referring dentists.
