Expert diagnosis dentistry available in Carlsbad

Technology and Comfort Amenities to Serve You, Dr. Al A. Fallah For many years, the standard of care in dentistry involved visual examination enhanced by film, or more recently digital, x-rays. Dr. Al A. Fallah is changing that for patients in the Carlsbad area, with innovative technologies for expert diagnosis.

Cone beam CT technology

Conventional x-rays essentially project a three-dimensional image onto a flat, two-dimensional plane. They help the dentist detect problems, but leave him to guess at exactly where in the mass of tooth and bone structure the issue lies.

To solve this dilemma and bring many other benefits to patients, Dr. Fallah has invested in the Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid cone beam CT digital imaging system. It provides incredibly clear, high-resolution images for expert diagnosis.

Uses for cone beam CT imaging

Some patients have a very sensitive gag reflex. Even the introduction of a small sensor necessary for conventional digital x-rays can be unpleasant. With the cone beam CT device, Dr. Fallah obtains images extra-orally – from outside the mouth.

Three-dimensional imaging is also ideal for:
  • Discovery of hidden infections in jawbone or teeth.
  • Precise planning and placement of zirconia dental implants.
  • Accurate mapping of the airway to address obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.
  • Finding causes of TMJ disorders, allowing for more effective treatment.

Patient benefits

This system has the lowest radiation exposure of any comparable technology. The process is quick and painless. Simply relax your head comfortably in the chin rest, while the machine takes panoramic images. The accuracy of those pictures is incredibly precise and detailed. You see them on a monitor, while Dr. Fallah explains his findings and treatment options. The image files are securely stored and easily shared with your other healthcare providers or insurance company, if necessary.
