Preview Surgery with Computer Imaging and Photo Morphing
If you’re considering facial cosmetic surgery, it is a big decision. Most likely, you recognize there is room for improvement but not exactly sure what you need. You may be spending time in front of your mirror trying to simulate surgical results by pulling, and turning side to side trying to see your profile etc. On the other hand you may be sure of what you want but cannot be realistically achieved. Computer imaging can help you make the best decision by allowing you to view the potential results of a cosmetic procedure using your own photos, before a procedure is performed.
Computer imaging is a logical first step if you’re considering cosmetic surgery. It can help you determine if a procedure is right for you. During your private consultation, Dr. Merheb will take your photos and transfer them to a computer. Based on your concerns and goals he will alter the photos to demonstrate potential changes. Please keep in mind that this technology cannot show you the exact changes and should not be used as a guarantee of surgical results. However, It is a great communication tool between you and your doctor. You can see the changes of one or combined procedures.
- Delivers the highest resolution images in the industry.
- Reduced exposure to radiation.
- Ergonomically designed for patient comfort and safety.

Cone Beam Technology (CT Scan)
The KODAK 9500 Cone Beam 3D System gives our practice the ability to take powerful 3D images, while using less radiation than a traditional medical CT system. The unit captures high-quality images and allows our practice to accurately diagnose and perform a wider range of treatments in the office.
Three-dimensional technology allows Dr. Merheb to better visualize his patients’ dentition and surrounding structures. Viewing an unprecedented level of anatomical detail helps Dr. Merheb diagnose more accurately and treat with confidence. The capabilities of 3D imaging offer a wide range of diagnostic, treatment planning, and treatment options, including implant placement, surgical planning, extractions, examination of oral pathologies, and third molar evaluations. This breakthrough technology provides unprecedented visualization of the teeth and jaw.
