If someone told you that you needed a CAT scan, what would your first thought be? Our guess is that it wouldn’t be very positive, because most people really don’t like that process! It’s no wonder, either! Having a traditional CAT scan isn’t comfortable, but we don’t necessarily stick with traditional here at New Albany Implants! We like to find the latest and greatest ways to do dental dentistry and bring those things back to New Albany, Indiana! We did exactly that when we invested in our Galileos 3D CAT Scan!
If you’ve ever had a traditional CAT scan, you know just how uncomfortable it can be. You might be asked to lie on your back or stomach, depending on what is being scanned. You have to lie very still inside of a machine that is whirring around you. On top of all of that, you probably had the scan done at a hospital where you had to be walked or wheeled down hallway after hallway to a little room. Sometimes they even send an escort with you to help you find you way back to the main lobby! It can be a very stressful experience.
We decided we didn’t want our patients to be in that much discomfort over images that we could take in our office. We invested in Galileos and never looked back! When we need images, you simply walk into the next room and sit comfortably in a chair. Galileos will move around your head, never enclosing it, taking images all the way. You will receive less radiation and get higher quality images within minutes! This allows us to immediately get to work creating options for you and your smile!
Don’t drive yourself to stress trying to get a CAT scan for dental work. Let us take care of that for you during your first appointment! We guarantee that you’ll be pleased with the scans, and we’ll have a much more accurate way to diagnose any issues you might be having. Contact us today to set up your appointment to meet Galileos! We look forward to seeing you soon!
