This technology provides enhanced images while reducing a patient’s exposure to radiation as compared to conventional radiography.
Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography
3D imaging enables us to obtain a more complete view of an area of interest and adds the extra dimension that uncovers a wealth of information, such as root angulations, locations of supernumerary teeth, root resorption, and impactions.
An airway obstruction can negatively impact the facial grown and cognitive development of a child. It can also affect normal breathing, sleep quality, and the general health of a child or an adult. We use the i-CAT FLX 3D CBCT to take a very low radiation CT scan and evaluate the airway of every new patient. If there is a constricted airway, we can help to develop the airway with orthodontic treatment and collaboration with our medical colleagues.
Our paperless record keeping system allows for enhanced security of patient records and not to mention it’s good for the aina!
