We are one of the few private practices to have the Award-Winning i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Imaging System in our office. The i-CAT produces high definition 3 D diagnostic images for ultimate treatment efficiency. In one low dose scan, we have the option of capturing 3D views of a single arch to a full skull and a broad array of desired fields in the range between. The image will be customized based on the patients unique needs, giving us a clinically driven image and complete exposure control. The resulting 3D scan is thus generated while minimizing the radiation dose to the patient.
Confidently Map Surgical Treatment Plans......Place and restore Dental Implants with Accuracy
With the multituded of software tools available we can accurately map the structures of the jaw, We can precisely determine and visualize tooth position within the alveolar bone, location relative to adjacent teeth and proximity to vital structures, such as the nerve canal, sinus walls, and cortical boarders. This allows us to pre-plan with accuracy the entire course of treatment from surgical placement of the dental implant, all the way to the final restoration.
The advantage of looking at certain pathologic conditions we see every day, in 3 dimentions, can't be overstated. We have already identified cysts, growths, and cracked teeth which simply couldn't be identified with a traditional 2D dental x-ray.
We feel this tool is one of the things that separate us from the average dental practice and illustrates our comittment to providing our patients with all the latest in state of the art equipment and techniques.
