What is the 3-D iCat Scanner?
3-D iCat Scanner is an advanced form of digital x-ray that helps us visualize all of the details within your head and jaw. As compared to typical dental x-ray, the 3-D iCat Scanner provides better, more accurate imaging. It also exposes you to far less radiation than traditional x-rays. It can produce images from different dimensions in a single exposure, which is unlike traditional x-ray that can only produce a single dimension from a single scan. With 3-D iCat Scanner, you get the x-ray scan done once, and it can then produce some images. The procedure will take about 20 seconds, and be done in a comfortable area with plenty of space around you. After the procedure, we can easily share the data with you, or when necessary, other dental professionals.
Depending on your dental condition and the procedure you need to have performed, we may require this type of technology. This gives us an in-depth view of your oral cavity, the roots of your teeth, the bones of your jaw, your nerves, and your sinuses. We can then visualize any damage or injuries in these parts much more easily than requiring invasive procedures. With this technology, we can precisely perform and tailor surgical treatment plans to the needs of our clients more efficiently. In addition to that, success and recovery rates are also higher when better imaging is used.
