CT Scans


i-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Dental CT ScannerAll our clinics have Cone Beam 3D Dental CT Scanners. This equipment produces 350 megabytes of 3D images for the precise placement of implants using Guided Surgery technology.

CT scans are essential for the accurate placement of dental implants. CT scans measure the depth, width and density of the jaw bone, and more importantly the depth of bone in the proximity of nerve canals and sinus cavities in a 3D view to an accuracy of 0.1 mm.

The placement of implants without the use of a CT scanner is taking an unacceptable risk with a patient's well-being. The time saving allows us to offer such competitive prices and the patient saves time due to fewer visits.

The latest technology allows the patient to leave the chair with dental implants the same day. Replacing teeth with implant treatment has traditionally been associated with long periods of recuperation and high costs, but with our state-of-the-art equipment the time and the cost can be dramatically reduced.

Advanced Implantology Using the Latest Technology

All our clinics have the latest technology, including 3D CT scanners for the precision implant placement. The placing of implants cannot be done with optimum accuracy without the advantage of the 3-D images produced by a CT scanner, which can measure bone depth, width and density; as well as accurately define the location of anatomical structures such as nerve canals and sinuses. Relying on a 2-D pan-oral (OPG) image alone, is taking, what we consider to be an unnecessary risk.

3D CT scans are taken for pre-operative planning, so a precise diagnosis can be made, eliminating any guesswork. 3D CT scans measure bone density, determine the bone condition, ascertain the position of anatomical structures and inferior alveolar nerve and ascertain what type of implant to use and determine where to place it. The requirement for bone restoration is usually determined during the clinical assessment. Working from a 2D X-ray alone increases the likelihood that certain issues are not seen soon enough, increasing the possibility of treatment plan changes.

With our latest electronic sensing device we can now precisely measure the bond between an implant and bone tissue. The principle is simple, but the invention is ingenious.

CAT Scans should not be confused with MRI Scans which are used for the diagnosis of other problems, not associated with Dental or Oral issues.
