OMNICAM 3D Dental Camera

Dr Schwan is as excited as a newborn baby to announce the arrival of the Omnicam 3D Dental Camera which is the very latest upgrade.


The Omnicam can take a full color 3D image of the entire mouth that makes possible precise and predictable results for all our natural tooth colored restorations that can be done in one visit.      

The Omnicam also correlates its images with those taken by our new Galileos Comfort Plus Cone Beam Scanner.  This enables us to place implants and the associated restorations with results unmatched by any other existing system.

The Galileos Comfort Plus provides a map for the surgeon to carefully place the implant in the proper location with the best bone support while avoiding delicate structures such as the mandibular nerve and other anatomic anomalies.

The next time you visit our office, you may hear a new tune being played by the Omnicam 3D Dental Camera as it gathers up data for another photo impression of someone’s mouth.


Dr Schwan Welcomes Galileos Comfort Plus Cone Beam CT

Dr Schwan is excited to welcome the arrival of the Sirona Galileos Comfort Plus Cone Beam CT.  

Galileos Plus


Images taken with a Cone Beam CT are rapidly becoming the Standard of Care.  With a single 14 Second Scan, the Galileos can deliver very informative 3D images that include Panoramic, Saggital, Axial and Coronal views of varying anatomic thickness for Superior Diagnosis and Treatment Planning.

Diagnostic Images

For our family of patients, just to name a few benefits. Cone Beam Imaging can provide a new higher level of predictability in the planning and placement of implants.  The precise location of infections and their treatment.  Evaluation of the TMJ.   Airway assessment for effective treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.  Furthermore, the Cone Beam Images blend seamlessly with our Cerec 3D CAD CAM system for precise fabrication of implants, crowns and bridgework.

Since the Galileos Comfort Plus is Sirona’s Flagship, it will be constantly upgraded as new technology and software permit.  The latest addition is the Plus which represents the taking of a superimposed photo that is synchronized flawlessly with the 3D images.

Best of all, the Typical Patient Radiation Exposure  for Cone Beam CT ( 12 to 120 microsieverts)  is very low when compared to Conventional CT Scanning  ( 2100 microsieverts).
