Green CT is an advanced digital imaging system the incorporates multiple types of imaging technology, including panoramic, cephalometric, CBCT and MODEL scanning. This technology provides high-quality images to provide the most accurate information possible about your teeth and supporting oral structures.

This X-ray device is a type of extraoral imaging, meaning that nothing is inserted into your mouth during the imaging process. Instead, the images are captured using a panoramic X-ray device adapted with a film holder mounted on a mechanical arm. This arm rotates around your head to capture images of your entire oral structure, including the nasal and sinus passageways to give our dentists a comprehensive view of your jaw, mouth and head. Our dentists can then use these images to:

  • Determine the need for orthodontics and evaluate treatment progress
  • Diagnose impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth
  • Analyze the development of gum disease
  • Evaluate the jaw joint to diagnose and treat TMJ disorders
  • Evaluate bad bites
  • Detect oral cancer
  • Plan dental implant placement procedures
  • Diagnose tooth decay and other problems
  • Evaluate dental and facial trauma, such as fractures and other injuries to your teeth and jawbone
  • Diagnose abscesses, cysts and tumors
