3D Digital Dentistry in Newnan, GA

Dr. Galbo has recently integrated Galileos® cone beam technology with 3D diagnostics and high-resolution imaging into his clinical practice. This radiography system allows Dr. Galbo to analyze three-dimensional views of oral structures in the treatment planning process.

3D VS. 2D

Traditional dental X-rays are two-dimensional views of teeth and jaw structures. 3D imaging offers the ability to rotate tooth and jawbone structures for 360-degree viewing from every angle, providing additional information for the treatment planning process.

CEREC® 3D Dentistry with Galileos®

We are all super-excited, as this takes CEREC® dentistry into an entirely new arena! Galileos® 3D imaging communicates with the CEREC® CAD-CAM design software, providing Dr. Galbo with important details while he is creating CEREC® crowns, bridges or dental implant restorations. Dr. Galbo is one of two dentists today in Georgia that has the Galileos® Comfort system available in their facility for full imaging of the head, neck, and jaws.

Dental Implants

Cone beam imaging offers Dr. Galbo the ability to plan and simulate placement of dental implants, “virtually”. Through colored visualization of the nerve canal and the depiction of the bones in all dimensions, he can adapt the implant in an ideal manner to fit the patient’s anatomy. In some cases, Dr. Galbo uses these 3D tools to design a surgical guide for use during the implant procedure for added efficiency during treatment.

CEREC® Implant Crowns

After the dental implant has healed, Dr. Galbo can then utilize 3D planning data even further for the design of the implant crown restoration with CEREC®. This remarkable system offers us the ability to provide our patients with a crown in a single visit. One-visit technology means no messy dental impressions or temporary restorations! You leave our office with the finished result – a beautiful implant crown restoration that is custom-fitted and looks and feels like a natural part of your smile.

Orthodontics & TMJ Therapy

3D imaging provides Dr. Galbo with several views of the patient’s facial skeletal structure and the jaw joints (TMJ). This information is necessary for planning orthodontic treatment and management of jaw joint disorders. Previously, this was accomplished by acquiring multiple dental and medical X-rays.

Sleep Apnea

Dr. Galbo has provided Dental Sleep Apnea treatment in conjunction with medical sleep studies for many years. The level of detail that 3D imaging provides in relation to oral structures also reveals important information about the airway space and helps “tell the story” about a patient’s snoring and possible airway blockages to aid in early screening of sleep apnea disorders.
