NORTHRIDGE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Northridge Dental Group is pleased to announce that they are offering a limited time only special on dental CT scans. The regular price for this scan is $450, but Northridge Dental Group is offering it for $150. This represents a $300 savings. Visit, Northridge Dental Group for more information about this offer.

Dental CT scans are similar to x-rays in that they bounce tiny particles of radiation off your bones and teeth. X-rays send radiation in a straight line, creating a two-dimensional image. A CT scan, in contrast, sends the radiation from many different angles, creating a 3D image. This 3D image provides more detail for Dr. Arami, Northridge porcelain veneers dentist, which allows him to develop safe and practical treatment plans. This image can be viewed from any angle, which allows the dentist greater flexibility to make decisions about dental procedures, as well as a better ability to diagnose problems with your teeth or jaw.

The CT scan is often used by Dr. Ariz, Northridge dental implants specialist to determine the bone density in the jaw, which is necessary information to determine if the patient is a good candidate for dental implants or other cosmetic dental procedures. In addition, this more detailed imaging allows Dr. Ariz and Dr. Arami, Northridge Invisalign aligners provider, to spot signs of disease more effectively than an x-ray, which can aid in the early detection and treatment of many oral health problems.

The CT scan procedure is painless and fast. It is over in a matter of minutes. First, you will be asked to remove your metal jewelry to avoid it interfering with the image. The dentist will then shield your body with a lead apron and then take the images.

In addition to the CT scan, Northridge Dental Group also offers cosmetic dental procedures such as placing tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers. The office also provides teeth whitening. The Zoom whitening treatment uses a highly concentrated peroxide gel and a special LED light to remove stains, leaving your teeth up to 5 to 6 shades whiter.
