GALILEOS®

3D Cone Beam Austin, TX

The new dimension in 3D diagnostic imaging.

You could say that the GALILEOS® works like an X-ray, but really it is so much more. As the latest in CT Scan technology, it captures both bone and soft tissue in a higher image quality than ever before. In just a short scan that lasts less than 15 seconds, we can now see an entire 3D model of our patient’s teeth and jaw, as well as the jaw joint and other important structures of the craniofacial region. We use this information in the diagnosis and treatment planning for things such as dental implants, periodontal disease, orthodontic treatment, TMJ, sleep apnea, and many others.

Furthermore, since Westlake Family Dental also uses CEREC®, we can use the two devices to more accurately plan the placement of dental implants. First, the CEREC® digitally designs what the final restoration will look like, and then the data is used by the GALILEOS® to determine the optimal placement of the implant. Finally, the GALILEOS® creates precise surgical guides that are used during the procedure, which makes for a more comfortable surgery and reduced healing time.

Our doctors and the entire team at Westlake Family Dental are dedicated to maintaining the highest quality in dental care and are happy to invest in technologies like the GALILEOS® 3D Cone Beam that benefit our patients.
