Cone Beam, CT Scan and 3-D Imaging

 

 
Until recently, traditional dental x-rays were only able to provide limited information about the state of your mouth. Dentists relied on experience and knowledge to diagnose and develop treatment plans for each patient. However, advances in technology have allowed dental professionals to get the information they need to place more successful implants.

The i-Cat 3-D Digital Imaging Scanner (or Cone Beam) produces a high-resolution 3-D image of the mouth. The images are then reconstructed on the computer screen and used in conjunction with software that allows us to view the jawbone from multiple angles and ensures proper and precise placement of dental implants.

CT Scans and Cone Beam Imaging systems generate 3D, high definition x-rays within seconds. The panoramic images are remarkably clear, which helps with diagnosing and treating dental ailments. These scans allow us to quickly assess your dental needs and get you back out enjoying your life in less time than you might expect from traditional imaging equipment.

The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, which is why we utilize a cone beam imaging system in our office. Some additional benefits of cone beam imaging include:

  • Visualize anatomy that can not be diagnosed externally or from traditional x-rays
  • Create better, more effective treatment plans
  • Assess benefits and risk of treatment options
  • Analyze the position and orientation of critical structures, such as nerves, prior to the procedure
  • Faster scan time (10-40 seconds vs. several minutes)
The Cone Beam is used in many dental procedures. It can be used to determine a treatment plan for dental implants, helping determine size and placement of the implant. It can also be used to diagnose and treat periodontal disease. Some additional benefits include:

  • Implant planning
  • Earlier detection of oral infections and tumors
  • TMJ analysis
  • Airway studies (ie: sleep apnea)
  • Impacted teeth
  • Periodontal disease
It is important to us that our patients receive the most advanced care possible. We utilize cone beam technology because it gives us a clear view of facial nerves and bone structure, which allows us to plan a customized procedure to protect your nerve endings. Such advanced technology allows us to minimize pain and speed healing!
