At Walker Dentistry we are always striving to bring you better and newer services that improve
the quality of our patient's lives. In the early 20th Century, not long after X-rays were discovered,
medical professionals recognized their value as diagnostic tools: They could clearly reveal structures
hidden inside the body without the need for risky surgery. At the dawn of the 21st century,
a revolutionary new technology has entered - Cone Beam 3D X-ray technology. Cone Beam CT has
some similarities with conventional X-rays, and also with the standard CT scans you would get in a
hospital setting. But it's a quantum leap forward in technology and diagnostic precision. For the dentist,
it offers the ability to visualize intricate structures inside the mouth, such as root canals, nerves and sinuses
(air-filled spaces) in the jaw — in three dimensions — without surgery. For the patient, it can reduce the need
for invasive procedures, shorten treatment time and offer the chance for a better outcome.
We are proud to have been an early adopter of Cone Beam technology in Dentistry.
Our Planmeca PROMAX Cone Beam CT machine has the lowest radiation dose setting in the industry.
