Galileos Cone Beam Scanner

Rating: 5 Gallos Cone Beam Scanner Austin - 5 Star Reviews


I want to start this review explaining how I feel about going to the dentist. This is as enjoyable to me as I imagine swimming in a tank with sharks would be. I suffered mouth trauma as a child and would say that I have extreme anxiety about having people involved in my mouth.

That said, if there is such a thing as elegance in dentistry, Dr. Griffin Cole is it. He is simply the best of the best.

He specializes in toxic free dentistry, his offices are immaculate and his staff top rate. He has the warmest bed side manner of any Dr. I have ever worked with and even calls me in the evenings to be sure I am okay.

Dr. Cole compassionately nurtures you through the procedures while providing what I have been told is some of the best dentistry in the country. If we ever move, I will come to Austin for the sole purpose of having Dr. Cole be my dentist. He exceeds every expectation I have ever had for a dentist and has made going to the dentist one of my daughter's favorite days of the year. A child who LOVES going to the dentist. Who knew that was even possible?
We invested in the Galileos 3D Cone Beam Scanner because X-rays don't show the depth of hard structures in the mouth. We can detect the smallest details more safely.
“X-rays lie.” Although many dentists would disagree with this statement, Dr. Cole believes this to be true when relying only on a traditional 2-dimensional x-ray to diagnose common dental problems. This is the chief reason why our office invested in the Galileos 3D Cone Beam Scanner. Standard x-rays only record the height and width of hard structures, but not the depth. Using the Galileos cone beam scanner, we are able to capture intricate details in a shorter amount of time, exposing our patients to far less radiation than is emitted by conventional two-dimensional x-ray imaging.

3D imaging utilizing cone beam technology is more akin to CAT scan imaging. The capabilities of cone beam imaging are far superior to conventional x-rays, giving us the opportunity to better serve our patients’ needs through precise diagnostics and planning. The high quality of imaging that is possible with the Galileos comes from the measurement of volume. To gain the best data, we can set the Galileos machine to provide us with panoramic, transversal slice, and cephalometric views.

The precise views captured with cone beam CAT scan imaging provide us with the ideal view of all areas of teeth as well as the roots, bone, joints, sinuses, and airway. The clarity of imaging allows us to see imperfections and defects, as well as the various structural details of bone tissue in the jaw.

The panoramic and dissected views we obtain from this state-of-the-art imaging equipment provide the level of clarity that leads to optimal treatment of infected root canals, and aids in the planning process for dental implant surgery. In our dental office, the Galileos is used to facilitate computer-guided implant treatment, leading to precise placement and an expedited procedure, as there is no guesswork involved in the most desirable position of implant posts. Dr. Cole surgically places implants in select cases, always incorporating this technology for computer-guidance.

We provide the best possible care for our patients by utilizing proven technologies. To learn more about our services, contact our office at (512) 472-3565.

    I couldn't be happier with my experiences so far. I have never been comfortable in a dentist office and have been embarrassed about how poorly I've taken care of my teeth. I have felt like a family friend with everyone in the office since I first showed up at their door. Their bedside manner is a 10! I love the fact that they are holistic and do everything they can to ensure I get the best and safest treatments possible. I will likely continue to go to them even if I relocate out of the state. Thank you, Dr. Cole, and staff for helping me- I can not fully express my gratitude.
