3D Cone Beam Imaging


To support a higher level of patient care, our practice utilizes i-CAT 3D cone beam imaging for diagnosis and treatment.

The 3D computer-generated scans provide an advanced and detailed look at existing teeth, bone, nerves, and tissue with three-dimensional and cross-sectional views, which provide critical diagnostic information that is not available with conventional dental x-rays.

Your initial consultation is much more comprehensive with 3D images, which allows Dr. Davis to do the following:
•  Evaluate the quality, width, shape and density of the bone where the dental implants will be placed
•  Determine the proper treatment approach for you
•  Determine the precise placement of implants, particularly in areas near critical anatomical structures, such as sinuses and nerves
•  Select the correct type and size of the implants

While the i-CAT gives Dr. Davis information similar to that generated by a medical CT scan, the i-CAT has a radiation dose that is about 1/30th that of medical CT scans. The actual i-CAT scan time is only about 20-40 seconds and it takes the computer about one minute to build the images.

Virtual implant placement is also available with i-CAT technology, allowing Dr. Davis to place implants more accurately.
