Placing dental implants with precision is now much easier thanks to the 3D Cone Beam. Since Scottsdale dentist, Dr. Rod Gore, wants to know precisely where to place your dental implant, he will use this innovative technology to get a 3D image of your entire skull. The 3D Cone Beam will allow him to determine the correct angle, rotation, depth, width, and height of both the implant and the color-matched restoration. This will allow the implant to fit so well within your mouth that it will be indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth. Until the arrival of Sirona’s Galileos Cone Beam technology, dental scans were conducted in 2 dimensions.

My teeth whitening experience was very pleasant perfromed by a new dental assistant at the office she has only been working there for 1 month and you could not tell. She is very well trained and made me feel at ease during the entire experience. I was very impressed by the entire staff, and the office is beautiful clean and comfortable.

"Dr. Gore has the best Scottsdale dental office and staff. One of my crowns installed years ago came off on Easter weekend. Even though it was a Monday and the day after Easter and they were fully booked he got me in to recement my crown. Thank you Dr. Gore!"- D.D. / Google / Apr 10, 2017
"I just moved to AZ two weeks ago and I had a fall while walking my dogs managing to scrape my face and break a front tooth. I was referred to Dr. Gore's office and was seen by Dr. Sebree. When I first met her I was skeptical as she looked 18 years old and new to the business. Boy, was I wrong! She was professional, detailed and meticulous with rebuilding my tooth and making sure it looked just like the others. She is went back and forth looking at it at every angle before she was satisfied with her work. I highly recommend Dr. Sebree and am thrilled with her work!"- K.H. / Google / Apr 03, 2017
What to Expect
Using this digital diagnostic equipment, we can review a complete 3D image of your skeletal anatomy, including your skull, neck, jawbone, and teeth. You will feel no pain or discomfort as we use the cone beam since it rotates around your head to capture detailed images. All you have to do is relax. Depending on the area of the images, you will either lie down or sit up in a chair. It takes around 20 – 40 seconds for the cone beam to make a complete 360-degree rotation.
Within 15 minutes, we’ll know whether implants are ideal for you and exactly where and how to place them—long before we ever begin the procedure. Once we have collected the necessary images, we can place the implants. Once the implants are in place, they will work to: maintain your dental health, stabilize your bite, preserve your facial contours, and maximize the function of your mouth.
What are the Benefits?
Utilizing this technology, our team can see your head and neck anatomy with unprecedented image quality; measure and evaluate your precise bone density; and structure, move, manipulate, and magnify any aspect of the 3D imagery. The 3D Cone Beam also allows us to determine whether implants are ideal for you, decide exactly where and how we will place your implant(s), and eliminate any concern about exposure to radiation.
Dental implants are brilliant restorations that can restore your ability to eat, speak, and be yourself again. Since your implants must be secured in precisely the right location to optimize their effectiveness, the Sirona Galileos Cone Beam diagnostic tool allows us to do just that. With the technology, we can make sure they end up precisely where they need to be.
Plan Your Procedure
Dental implants are a huge step in restoring your mouth and their placement shouldn’t be left to chance. That’s why it’s important to not only find an experienced dentist, but one who is educated in and uses the latest technology for proper placement. You will find that with Dr. Gore and his team as they use the 3D Cone Beam to accurately and beautifully place dental implants.
