About 3D Imaging
Because your health is our priority, we are one of the few General Dentistry offices in Atlanta who offer 3D Imaging on site! 3D Imaging is the latest technology in dentistry for accurate diagnoses and treatment planning of complex dental issues.
While traditional 2D x-rays are still the best standard of care for diagnosing cavities and other issues directly related to your teeth, 3D images help us diagnose any pain issues that are not evident on 2D x-rays. Since they are taken outside the mouth, they also give us a more comfortable way to make diagnoses on patients who struggle with traditional x-rays, such as gag reflexes or tori.
Because the use of state-of-the-art technology is of the utmost importance in our practice, we utilize 3D imaging and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to take a 360 degree scan, or X-ray, of a patient's head. The 3D imaging technology then projects the compiled images onto our computer screen so that we have an extremely detailed overview of our patient's current oral healthcare status before moving forward. From this stage, our skilled dental physicians, Dr. Cherof and Dr. Sayeg, can make decisions and suggestions to determine the next step in a patient's oral healthcare plan. If you have any questions about 3D imaging, feel free to contact our front office staff, we are happy to help!

"Came in there with UNREAL pain. when I mean Unreal I mean I couldn't open my mouth without screaming nerve pain. They took care of me like you couldn't believe. I was in severe pain and immediately a swarm of people to take care of me. From giving me a squish ball to squeeze on to putting an ice pack on my sweating forehead from the pain. AND OK YOU CAN WATCH TV WHILE THEY WORK ON YOU? EXCUSE ME? THAT IS INNOVATION AT ITS PURIST FORM. 100/10, I am forever in their debt."- T.K. / Google / Mar 06, 2018
"Very welcoming first visit to this dental practice. From the scheduling and estimation of out of pocket expenses with Rebecca, to the intake and photos with Deysha, to the sit down and chat with Dr. Sayeg, this practice is very patient focused. They offer you coffee upon arrival, give you a paraffin hand treatment during the waiting period, and set up Netflix for you during your cleaning. Dr. Sayeg is thorough yet takes a conservative approach to general wellness dentistry, and I appreciated his honesty on what was necessary and unnecessary. I will definitely return and have already scheduled an appointment for my 3 and 5 year old over Spring Break with Dr. Cherof. As a Sandy Springs local, I'm thrilled to have found this little gem of a dental practice and hope it becomes a long lasting place for my family."- A.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2018
Digital x-rays incorporate the latest technology to give the most accurate image while using less radiation than typical x-rays. They are aslo ecco-friendly in that there are no chemicals needed to process them and no plastic base copies to later be disposed. They appear instantly on a computer screen and can be easily transmitted to you or a refering doctor.
Skip Making Molds
With 3D imaging and our use of Cerec technologies, most patients can skip the mold making all together, and see for themselves how their treatment will progress right there on the monitor. We can also utilize these images to create more accurate dental implants, crowns, onlays/inlays, and more. It streamlines the process a little more, making the treatments better planned and performed with fewer issues.

Not all dental offices offer the same treatments or the same technology for their patients. You can take advantage of our 3D imaging, CEREC-crafted restorations, and more, to create a more accurate and efficient dental treatment. We would be happy to set up a consultation between you and Dr. Sayeg or Dr. Cherof. During this consultation, patients can expect to have their teeth examined, discuss their options, and learn more about our unique machines. Come see for yourself why patients love our technology.
