A Cat scan is an X-ray procedure that uses many different X-ray images with the help of computers to take 3D views of internal organs and structures within the body.
Many dentists are now using i-CAT scans to give them more detailed information about the mouth and skull. The dentist sees a clear picture of the bone structure, bone density, tissues and nerves can be viewed clearly.
US Dental Care pleased to be able to offer i-CAT scans to our patients.
i-CAT scans can be completed in just 30 seconds! This dramatically reduces the amount of radiation exposed to the patient in comparison with a regular X-rays. i-CAT scans have greatly reduced the time required to perform dental implant treatment. Your dentist is able to magnify specific areas of the face and jaw meaning diagnosis and treatment is much faster.
Just from an i-CAT scan, your dentist will be able to:
See impacted teeth and position of each tooth
Measure exact size of implant required and the best angle of location
Identify where nerves are located
Diagnose tumours and disease in early stages
You will be pleased to know that when you have an i-CAT scan, you just need to sit
comfortably on a seat and the i-CAT scan is so fast that it means diagnosis and treatment
is quicker and more accurate thus saving you time and money.
