CONE BEAM CT 3D IMAGING

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (C.B.C.T.) is a radiographic imaging method that allows accurate, three dimensional (3-D) imaging of hard and soft tissue structure. Dr. Oyangen uses this advanced x-ray machine in situations where regular dental x-rays are not sufficient enough. The C.B.C.T. scan aids Dr. Oyangen in the preparation and placement of dental implants, accurately locating the nerve canal for a root canal and for detecting fractures in a tooth  that are not seen by a standard x-rays.  It is a great tool for treatment planning since the patient and Dr. Oyangen can see this 3 dimensional image together.

ITERO® DIGITAL IMAGING SCANNER

The iTero® takes exceptional digital images of the patient’s mouth thus, reducing the need for messy impressions and molds of your teeth.  These accurate images can be sent to produce the best fitting Invisalign® aligners or dental restorations.

The iTero® scanner is easy to use and also improves the patient’s comfort.  It eliminates gagging that is associated with taking impressions. This scanner shortens appointments by 22% and often reduces return appointments. The iTero® provides real-time images that can help our dentist educate our patients.

DIAGNODENT CAVITY DETECTION LASER

We use the Diagnodent, to scan the teeth for decay.  It uses a harmless light of specific wavelength to accurately locate cavities that cannot be seen.  Early detection of cavities means earlier treatment and improved oral health.
