i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System
Our office uses i-CAT cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) 3D imaging for more accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. This allows more accurate views of impacted, supernumerary and abnormal teeth. Better information results in more efficient treatment and less invasive surgical procedures.
3D imaging has facilitated the setup of orthodontic/prosthodontic cases more accurately such as dental implant placement. Furthermore, 3D imaging assists patient communication and understanding as they can more easily visualize such issues as crowding, short roots, impacted and supernumerary teeth.
Patients can take advantage of a more complete orthodontic treatment with i-CAT imaging. Its innovative features include:
- One 4.8-second scan that provides your doctor with enough data for a complete diagnosis
- A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners
- Increased comfort: patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
- Doctors can easily share the data with patients, so patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment
