What is The i-CAT™ Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System?
CT Scan and computer-generated model of the patient’s mouth are used to identify the precise surgical position and depth for the implants allowing for greater patient comfort and shorter treatment time than traditional implant procedures. Natural-looking replacement teeth are then attached to the implants and the patient has fully functional.
The i-CAT™ Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System offers superior 3-D imaging for improved diagnosis and treatment planning. i-CAT™ is Dentistry’s low radiation alternative to traditional CT imaging. This machine produces 3-D images that allow us to accurately diagnose and treatment plan for dental implants
Who is it for?
This state-of-the-art technology is one of the greatest contributions to the field of dentistry. The 3-D data is used for Implant Planning, Third Molar Extractions, Impactions, TM Joints, Supernumeraries, Airway Assessments, Panoramics, and Cephalometrics.
Ears, Nose and Throat specialists are also utilizing the i-CAT as an excellent diagnostic tool. The i-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System should be used whenever pathology is suspected, for the planning of dental implants, prior to and during orthodontic treatment, and whenever dental extractions need to be performed near vital head and neck structures. The i-CAT scans are commonly used by Dental and Medical specialists because of their excellent resolution and low radiation exposure.
The benefits are extraordinary. Dental professionals are able to improve diagnosis, accuracy, and treatment results. Their patients are able to see a visual diagnosis, understand their treatment options and receive superior treatment as a result of the anatomically-true information provided by the i-CAT Scan.
During the scan, patients are seated in an open environment, the scan takes only 20 seconds, and patients receive significantly less radiation than a traditional medical CT scan. Dental and medical professionals easily share the 3-D data using i-CAT Vision viewing software.
Patients benefit from the integration of i-CAT into their treatment because our ability to execute complex multidisciplinary treatment hinges on our ability to plan. There is no single better tool available to obtain diagnostic information than the i-CAT and we are pleased to offer nothing less to our patients.
