Precision Dentistry

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Paswaters and staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.

Digital Imaging

Dr. Paswaters chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Paswaters utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.

Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Digital X-Rays:

Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.

3D Imaging

PLANMECA PROMAX 3D – ALL-IN-ONE UNIT

Planmeca ProMax 3D unitPlanmeca ProMax 3D unit is designed to obtain complete information on patient anatomy in the minutest detail.

This intelligent, multipurpose X-ray unit provides digital panoramic, cephalometric, and 3D imaging as well as 3D photo.

Full Range Diagnostics

Planmeca ProMax® 3D units offer a unique Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging protocol, enabling CBCT imaging with an even lower effective patient dose than standard 2D panoramic imaging. This pioneering imaging protocol is based on intelligent 3D algorithms developed by Planmeca and offers a vast amount of detailed anatomical information at a very low patient dose.  

The scanner provides volumes sizes for every clinical application with the possibility to adjust according to specific treatment needs. Planmeca ProMax 3D X-ray unit complies with a multitude of diagnostic requirements: those of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. The images can be taken anywhere within the maxillofacial region.
