Today on Holistic Dentistry, we continue our conversation with Dr. Joseph Canul about why dental CT-Scans should become the new standard of care. 


Every dental office has an X-Ray machine, but an X-ray only gives you a view of the dense tissue in the mouth, which is why so many patients needlessly suffer from misdiagnosis or even have undiagnosed infections, fractures, and problems in TMJ. With a dental CT-Scan, we can view the bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels simultaneously, which allows us to properly evaluate every aspect of the patient's mouth, jaw, and TMJ.  


Dr. Canul recalls how one dental CT-Scan saved his patient's life from a deeply rooted infection that an X-ray did not detect. This situation happens often, yet dental offices rarely utilize this life-saving technology. We discuss the many applications for dental CT-Scans that elevate patient care and prevent life-threatening conditions from occurring. You do not need to settle for a low standard of care. Join us as we discuss why CT-Scans are an essential component to the future of dentistry.
