We are proud to be the first dental practices in SA to own the new Orthophos XG 3D digital x-ray unit fromSirona. It utilizes the latest 3D imaging technology and thereby has a relatively low radiation dose compared with your traditional CT scans, but has just the same image detail allowing for enhanced diagnosis, improved planning and increased predictability.
Utilizing the digital images, we are able to create a 3D facial mask showing the teeth, jaws and other facial structures. This will assist us in creating a accurate treatment plan for cosmetic,implant and oral surgery cases. Due to the ability of the Orthophos XG to communicate with the Cerec CAD CAM unit it allows for simultaneous prosthetic and surgical implant planning.
