Galileos Comfort CT ScannerWhat is the Sirona Galileos?

Simply put, the Sirona Galileos is an in-office cat scan, sometimes referred to as a cone beam cat scan, designed specifically for dental specialists such as Periodontists and Oral/Maxillofacial Surgeons. The scanner provides highly accurate, high definition, 3-D images and information. This gives Dr. Silverstein complete and accurate views of the anatomy of a patient’s mouth face and jaw areas.

With the cone beam cat scan, our doctors can capture and more accurately analyze images of the position and orientation of critical structures like nerves, tooth roots, jawbone, sinuses and other data in three dimensions. This is achieved in 3-D, with much greater resolution and clarity than with traditional x-ray films or scans.

You can imagine the huge diagnostic advantage this technology offers our doctors. By allowing them to see teeth, jaw and nerves in precisely calibrated 3-D measurements, the surgeon can tell if there is sufficient bone present or whether important nerves are a safe distance away. We feel that the acquisition of this technology is a tremendously important benefit for our patients.

This non-invasive, painless and comfortable procedure greatly enhances our ability to accurately predict the success of dental implants, tooth exposures, and other surgical procedures. It can help avoid unnecessary surgery and guide our doctors toward less invasive surgical procedures.

Patients that are concerned about reducing risk and increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome during implant placement, tooth extractions or other procedures should seriously consider the diagnostic advantages of utilizing cone beam imaging technology.

This is all accomplished, right in our office, in a comfortable, open environment in less than 15 seconds. With the Galileos scanner, Dr. Silverstein can diagnose and discuss your situation with a great degree of accuracy and help you make an informed decision on how best to proceed.

Dr. Silverstein is one of only a handful dental specialists nationally that can provide this service for our patients.
