Technology

Galileos 3D Imaging

When it comes to the best technology, Leedy Dental takes the lead as the dental practice of choice in Abilene. We have many tools that are advanced and features, which put us ahead of our competition. One of these tools is Galileos 3D Imaging.

Galileos 3D Imaging technology is extremely crucial when planning your dental solutions. We can proudly claim we are one of the few dental offices in the area to own a 3D dental scanner, which allows our patients to receive all of their dental needs under one roof.

3D imaging allows us to view your teeth in a whole new dimension, along with the bone and the underlying structures. Typically, 3D imaging is used to:

  • Create plans for dental implant treatments.
  • Evaluate the grafting needs for patients.
  • Evaluate nerve locations near the impacted wisdom tooth.
  • Determine the complex anatomy of a root canal.
  • Locate hidden canals that cannot be found without the advanced 3D imaging.

This is a revolutionary technology, which allows us to diagnose and resolve complicated dental problems that would be impossible with traditional x-rays.

We can provide you with a superior experience simply because we make investments in resources that can benefit every single one of our patients. If you would like to learn more about the 3D imaging technology, you can certainly contact us today and schedule your appointment by calling us at (325) 268-0013 or scheduling a visit online!

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are a necessity when precautionary diagnostic methods that can provide important details cannot be seen during a typical dental exam. We utilize x-rays and their results carefully to identify and accurately diagnose hidden problems to provide the exact treatment required. Without the use of these x-rays, it would be impossible spot problems within the mouth.

What can Dental X-Rays show?

  • Swelling or Abscess.
  • Loss of bone.
  • Malignant and benign tumors.
  • Decay between the teeth.
  • Deformities in development.
  • Poor tooth and root placement.
  • Problems within a tooth and beneath the gum line.

By identifying problems early we are able to save you time and money.

Are Dental X-Rays safe?

Dental x-rays are not just safe but also effective. The exposure to radiation from a set of x-rays is equivalent to the amount of radiation people get during the day from different natural sources.

Dental x-rays are harmless because the intensity of radiation generated is minimal. Essential safety measures are practiced by our dentist to minimize the vulnerability of the patient during the process of undergoing dental x-rays. These preventive measures include:

  • Using lead apron shields to keep the body covered and protected.
  • Utilizing the latest quick x-ray film to cut down the exposure time.

How often should I get x-rays?

The demand for dental x-rays will depend on the health requirement of the patient. The dentist and the hygienist will determine the number of factors needed depending upon the assessment of the medical and dental background, dental tests, signs and symptoms, age, and the possibility of any complications or illnesses.

Soft Tissue Laser

Advanced laser technology has truly revolutionized the dental and healthcare industries. Lasers are a much more conservative treatment option for many procedures because we don’t have to use scalpels and sutures, drills of invasive scraping techniques.

Our soft tissue laser allows us to perform many different types of treatments in a way that is minimally invasive, conservative, and more comfortable for the patient with better results. We use the soft tissue laser to eliminate any tissue abnormalities, to treat gum disease, and to reshape and contour the gums for a more aesthetic smile.
