"Highly recommended! Even with my anxiety at an all time high, Dr. Ryan Carmichael and his assistant were able to reassure me that I would be okay despite him being the 4th dentist for the same tooth! They were correct! Procedure was amazing. We discussed everything, he explained the procedure, and made me feel very comfortable with an otherwise nerve-wracking experience. I am grateful for his care, calmness and vast knowledge. I wish all dental work could be so simple. They gave me an IV and told me I would take a nap. I woke up in no pain. (Have minimal now) They were very kind to me extremely patient and extra understanding! I was worked into the schedule, due to a difficult root canal truning into an emergency tooth extraction."- A.H. / Google / Sep 09, 2022

"My mom had a reconstruction surgery for a Mohs procedure on top her head, Dr. Selkin was extremely nice and proficient. He did a fabulous job. Looks like she will have minimal scarring and the hair will be able to cover the little bit of scarring that she will have. The staff in the office are incredibly nice and our wait time was minimal to be seen each time we have gone to his office."- M.V. / Google / Jun 29, 2022
"Dr. Selkin is downright amazing. I went in to get a wisdom tooth out, and Dr explained everything and answered all my questions. The staff was so kind and understanding about my fears regarding sedation. I was basically without pain by about 24 hours after surgery which I've never heard of with wisdom teeth. So impressed! Super easy process all around and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. I felt extremely well taken care of."- E.H. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
Who Is a Candidate for 3D digital Imaging?
Our oral surgeons utilize 3D imaging to identify and gain a better understanding of a wide variety of dental conditions among patients. For teens, this dental technology lets us monitor changes and developments in dental and facial structures and is utilized during orthodontic treatments to make certain that teeth are shifting and aligning properly. Advanced 3D imaging is also employed when planning for and performing surgical tooth extractions, dental implant placement, and corrective jaw surgery, or to evaluate head, neck, and facial pain or trauma. Digital dental technology further enhances the treatment planning process, providing Dallas, TX patients the best possible option for monitoring and treating oral concerns.
What to Expect With 3D Digital Imaging?
At PURE Oral Surgery, the 3D imaging process is very similar to having x-rays taken except that the imaging machine will rotate 360-degrees around your head. The entire process is generally comfortable and only takes about 30 seconds to generate a full-mouth view. When the process is complete, the images are instantly transmitted to our computer system and easily viewed by our surgeons. Since digital imaging can expose patients to radiation, women that are nursing or pregnant should let a member of our team know beforehand so special precautions can be taken. Your 3D images will be stored in your digital patient chart and utilized by our team to diagnose, plan treatments, and perform treatments for oral conditions.
What to Expect After 3D digital Imaging?
Once your 3D images are taken, they will be displayed on our computer monitor. One of our caring oral surgeons will review your images with you, taking special care to point out any areas of interest or concern. These images may be taken periodically to monitor your condition throughout the course of your care, or to evaluate your treatment or healing progress. By utilizing 3D digital imaging for Dallas, TX patients, our skilled team can also minimize trauma to surrounding tissues during treatments and reduce the risk of complications during surgical procedures.
