Every professional has a “toy” that is the pride and joy of the office. At New Albany Implants, our pride and joy is named Galileos! Galileos is our 3D CAT Scan. We realize that you might not think a CAT Scan is terribly exciting, but wait until you hear everything that our Galileos is able to do for you when you come into our office! You’re going to love this machine!
In most offices, CAT Scans are unavailable. You usually have to travel to the hospital in order to receive a CAT scan, and I think we all know what you can expect from that venture: long wait times, traffic frustration, and extra costs. Galileos helps you avoid all of those things because it is in-house. If we want images of your mouth, we simply walk you to a different room and take the images!
This is no ordinary CAT Scan, either. You don’t have to lie down or worry about being sent into one of those tubes for images. Galileos is open. All you have to do is sit in a chair and watch Galileos circle your head. You will never be contained or closed off. Not only that, but Galileos has less radiation than it’s counterparts in hospitals, which keeps you safe.
Our Favorite Part
Our favorite part of having Galileos in our office is the convenience. When you come in for a consultation, we can go ahead and take scans. Within the hour, you can be sitting in a conference with Dr. Ron discussing all of your possible options for restorations. We can then use those scans to create a plan of action before your procedure. The most we know about your mouth ahead of time, the better. Galileos will also pick up signs of oral health problems like sleep apnea, abscessed teeth, and broken teeth.
If you’re ready to meet Galileos, give us a call soon! We look forward to seeing you and showing you how one machine can make all the difference in the dental world.
