“It basically eliminates any sort of guess work you might have had with traditional x-rays,” states Dr. John Clay, Clay and Associates DDS, PLC.

Always providing cutting-edge dental care for their patients, Clay and Associates DDS, PLC recently installed a new KaVo OP 3D Pro Cone Beam Imagery.
In 1999 Bill Gates wrote a prophetic book titled “Business @ The Speed of Thought: Using A Digital Nervous System,” where he stated in the very first chapter: “I have a simple but strong belief. The most meaningful way to differentiate your company from your competition, the best way to put distance between you and the crowd, is to do an outstanding job with information. How you gather, manage and use information will determine whether you win or lose.”
Maintaining that same thought and mindset is Clay and Associates DDS, PLC. The newly installed KaVo OP 3D Pro Cone Beam Imagery equipment provides them with progressive dental care for their patients.
It’s fast, simple and completely painless – patients have a single 10-second scan. From that scan, the specialist can quickly see computer-generated views of the bones of the face, the teeth, and other details from any angle, in 3D and in color!
The 3D diagnostic imagery technology uses radiation in a manner similar to conventional radiographic imaging, with the difference being that cone beam images are converted into a three-dimensional view that can then be manipulated by sophisticated computer software for a wide variety of applications, including implant, orthodontic, orthognathic TMJ, and diagnostic purposes.
From this information, Dr. John Clay, Dr. Shaun O’Neill, and Dr. Tyler Wallingford are able to precisely determine locations for implant treatment planning along with other important dental procedures and applications. The standard of care today in implant dentistry is to recommend 3-D imagery for implants for nearly every patient.
“It basically eliminates any sort of guesswork you might have had with traditional x-rays,” states Dr. John Clay, Clay and Associates DDS, PLC.
