Dr. Douglas Schulz has made it his mission to bring the most advanced dental technology to his Overland Park practice. He uses the Galileos 3D Dental X-ray system to obtain the most thorough view of your mouth that is possible — in our office, in real time, and without unnecessary radiation.
Bony pathology, sinus problems, root canal problems and gum disease all show up clearly. Braces and dental implants can be planned more accurately. It is like being able to hold a skull in your hands and turn it over and around to see things!
GALILEOS is a 3D diagnostic technology that sets new standards by combining the lowest radiation dosage with superior image quality. With Galileos, Dr. Schulz can see the hidden parts of your mouth in 3D.
Galileos is like having an in-office CT (CAT) scanner, except the X-ray dose to you can be 100 time less, and the cost can be 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of a hospital-based CT. With the resulting X-ray, Dr. Schulz can see every corner of your mouth and jaw, from every angle, enabling him to make a correct and accurate diagnosis, and to come up with a treatment plan that will resolve your dental issues with the least amount of dental treatment.
Dr. Schulz uses several hi-tech digital tools to most comfortably and effectively diagnose your dental problem and ensure an accurate solution.
Digital x-rays emit much less radiation than traditional x-rays. They allow the doctor and patient to examine small details like cavities beginning between teeth so they both can see exactly what work needs to be done. It is much more accurate and helps set the patient at ease.
Intraoral cameras are tiny digital cameras that fit comfortably in your mouth and enable your dentist to show you an enlarged image of your smile on a computer screen. The camera is located in the tip of the intraoral wand and transmits real-time video for you and the doctors to review. This allows you to see live images of your mouth. The video is saved on the computer and a hard copy can then be printed for your record or for procedure verification by your insurance company.
The panoramic x-ray gives a broad overview of the entire mouth. It is also used for evaluating patients:
