3D Imaging Technology

At Lux Dental, we utilize 3D imaging technology. Most dental radio graphs (X RAY images) portray a 2 dimensional image of a 3D structure. That translates to multiple layers of information being compressed into a single image.

Picture yourself looking at a cheeseburger from the top down. The analogy (hypothetical, and stretching it a little), states that a traditional radio graph would provide information on the top and possibly the bottom bun of the burger, without clearly portraying what’s between the bun (the patty, cheese and hopefully onions). In surgery, it is important to know what is among the bone. Doctors cannot diagnose disease and appropriately treatment plan patients without such outcome critical information.

At Lux we realize the deficiency in most X Ray systems, and we chose to overcome. As a result, we acquired the PreXion3D Eclipse system.

We chose PreXion for its 15+ years of experience in the medical/dental fields. PreXion3D Eclipse has enhanced general versatility and provides superb image quality derived from the original PreXion3D Elite. The PreXion3D Eclipse is a true multi-modality scanner. It has allowed our team and our surgeons to perform in-office surgical implant procedures, as well as use 3D imaging for diagnosis in general dentistry, periodontics, orthodontics, and endodontics, along with planning in oral-maxillofacial surgery.

This small footprint 3D CBCT scanner reconstructs images to industry-standard DICOM format for compatibility with a variety of 3rd party surgical implant planning software packages. Such universality has permitted Lux and its surgeons to communicate with healthcare providers nationally and internationally. The comparative advantage is critical, as a large segment of our patients are derived from an international base.

Technology is a driving factor in improving the quality of care, patient comfort, diagnosis and treatment abilities. We are committed in acquiring the latest in clinically proven systems. Your health is of the utmost concern to us, and we will stand by our commitment in providing you with the highest standards of care.
