Our Technology

In addition to giving our dentists enhanced visibility of your dental condition, digital x-rays result in 80 to 90 percent less radiation exposure to you and your family.


Because conventional x-rays only display the images in two dimensions (length and height), we cbct scannerutilize a Cone Beam Computerized Tomography or CBCT scanner. This device provides our dentists with computerized 3-D visualization of the actual bone architecture and density. We’re proud to be the first dental practice in El Paso to have an on-site CBCT scanner. This scanner allows our dentists to more precisely plan and place dental implants, extract wisdom teeth and provide better root canal treatments.
