Many of the surgical treatments we provide are safer and more effective thanks to improved dental technology.

We place your well-being above all else and spare no expense when it comes to your personalized care. If you are looking for a state-of-the-art oral surgery facility, you have come to the right place!
A dental x-ray is an essential diagnostic tool for any oral surgeon. In the past, x-rays required film slides, complete with a long and tedious development process. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their numerous advantages over traditional methods.
Intraoral x-rays are the most common type of dental radiograph. To conduct a digital intraoral x-ray, a small electronic sensor is placed in the mouth. The sensor allows us to capture images of your teeth, roots, and supportive bone without the use of film slides. The position of the electronic sensor is dictated by the type of intraoral x-ray you need.
Digital x-rays omit up to 90% less radiation than a film x-ray. They also allow us to magnify or manipulate the image to gain a more comprehensive overview of your oral structures. Without the film development process, we can retake an x-ray instantly and share them electronically, all without affecting the environment.

3D Cone Beam CT Scan
When a digital x-ray fails to provide enough information, our doctors may order a cone beam CT scan. A CBCT scan is another form of digital radiography that gives us an even more detailed look at your oral and maxillofacial structures. With CBCT scans, we get a 3D representation of your teeth, bone and gums.
CBCT scans allow us to better determine the root cause of a symptom or problem. They also allow us to develop more precise surgical plans for dental implants, tooth extractions, bone grafting, and many other restorative procedures. In other words, CBCT and 3D imaging have revolutionized the way we perform oral surgery.

At North Hills Implant & Oral Surgery, our cutting-edge technology allows us to provide a supreme level of care for our patients. For instance, we now offer digital impressions thanks to a revolutionary device known as an intraoral scanner. Digital impressions have some advantages over traditional ones. Traditional impressions involve a material that is often messy, inconvenient, and uncomfortable.
