With the i-CAT® 3D Imaging System, our team at The Dental Studio can perform quick, effective, and comfortable imaging to provide you with a more accurate diagnosis. Cone beam imaging is a revolutionary advancement in healthcare technology, and it has become increasingly popular over the years. By taking hundreds of high-resolution images in a matter of seconds, the i-CAT can create a three-dimensional image of your dental anatomy.
By accessing the 3D image on a computer, our dentist can zoom in and rotate the digital replica of your jaw, face, head, and neck to properly locate, diagnose, and treat any oral issues. With 3D images, our dentist can gain access to more accurate information regarding:
- Jaw and bone deformities
- Density of the jaw bone
- The detection of tumors and cysts
- Proper implant placement
- Impacted teeth
- TMJ disorders
- Sleep apnea and issues with the nasal cavity
- Facial trauma
- Orthognathic surgery
- And much more
The i-CAT imaging system is a great way for our dentist to provide better care while also enhancing the comfort of our patients. Not only does the i-CAT use less radiation than traditional CT scans, but patients only need to sit still while the camera rotates around their head, completing the entire imaging process in under 30 seconds. This means that participating in a 3D scan will not take time away from your scheduled appointment time, and our dentist can provide diagnoses and treatment recommendations during the same visit your scan is taken.
