3D X-rays
The newest addition to our x-rays is the ability to do 3D imaging.  We use our Panographic machine to do this, with a special cone beam and flat semiconductor panel.  PanoWhile most patient will never experience this, it does give us the ability to better visualize the bone and surrounding tissues when working with more complicated cases.   

During the scan, each image is made using a short X-ray pulse instead of continuous radiation. The total scanning time is 18 seconds for one volume, but the actual exposure time is only 3 seconds at shortest. This technique reduces patient radiation dose and forms a stroboscopic X-ray effect which, together with the shortened rotation scan (only 200 degrees), contributes to outstanding image quality.

Dear Dr. Dilger:


It all started with my initial phone call to Dr. Dilger's office. I felt so comfortable from the start and after I came in for my first visit it's been all about what I want and what Dr. Dilger and his staff recommends for me. All around, it's been the best dental experience I've ever had.

Going to the dentist used to be a nightmare experience for me. That's all changed when I came to Dr. Dilger. Dr. Dilger's office staff are so warm and welcoming. Visiting them is like going home. Dr. Dilger's calm and caring manner erased all my dental anxiety and for the first time in my life I found myself relaxed in a dental chair. Dr. Dilger and his staff really took the time to get to know me and my concerns. They talked with me about my fears and helped me address my anxiety. Now I visit the dentist and I'm not afraid. I can not express the difference Dr. Dilger has made in my dental life! Thanks so much Dr. D.

I love my new smile.  It was so easy too.  Nearly pain free.  I am considering my lower teeth at a later date.
