iCat Scanner

One of the tools we use to diagnose orthodontic issues is iCAT Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging. This new and exciting technology enables our doctors to obtain high definition, 3-D CT scans of our patients’ maxilla and mandible. With one scan, lasting under five seconds, the doctor will be able to obtain all the necessary x-rays required for orthodontic treatment. This helps us to visualize root positions, impacted teeth, airways, and a variety of anomalies. We believe that 3D imaging is far superior to traditional digital 2D x-ray for the diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems. Many dentists and dental specialists also use our i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System to provide quick, comfortable, and effective dental imaging for the most precise dental health diagnosis possible. i-CAT® technology provides 3D data for:

  • Dental implants
  • SureSmile imaging
  • Wisdom teeth extractions
  • Impactions
  • Trauma
  • TMJ treatment
  • Airway assessments and sleep apnea
  • Full facial and jaw 3D images
  • Patients can take advantage of a more complete dental treatment with i-CAT® imaging. Special features for patients include:
  • One, 20-second scan that provides enough data for a complete diagnosis
  • A safer diagnosis with less radiation than standard digital x-rays
  • Increased comfort patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
  • A more cost-effective imaging system
  • Doctors can easily share the data with patients, so patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment
