Gendex GXCB-500 HD 3D Dental Imaging

Periodontal Associates is now using the latest in dental imaging technology, the GXCB-500 HD, a Cone Beam 3D dental imaging system. Cone Beam technology is quickly advancing the dental industry's leading approach to treatment planning and diagnosis. With a quick scan around the patient's head, our doctors can now view 3D patient anatomy to accomplish, more precise evaluation for predictable treatment results with shorter appointment times for the patient.

Dentistry's most accurate imaging. Periodontal Associates has chosen this technology to enhance treatment care for patients in the greater Charleston area. Using the GXCB-500 HD scanner's high resolution images, Periodontal Associates, obtains highly accurate and detailed three-dimensional views of all anatomies such as bone, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways and sinuses. This 3D dental imaging is used for implant planning, TMJ and airway analysis, orthodontic and oral surgery planning, and to detect pathologies such as cysts and tumors.

Safety and Convenience for Patients. Periodontal Associates can now take an immediate scan for patients with a lower radiation dosage and without the inconvenience of going to a hospital for a medical CT scan. Once the scan is complete, our doctors can share an immediate visual diagnosis to help patients truly visualize and better understand treatment options. These preoperative scans are easily shared with other doctors helping Drs. Keith, Caputo and Murphy perform less invasive procedures through increased precision, thus reducing risks for patients.

It is our goal to provide the best care for our patients. To meet this goal, we have incorporated many high-tech devices and procedures. Therefore we are delighted to now offer Cone Beam 3D technology to the patients who put their trust in us.
