Advanced Dental Imaging

I-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System

A key to the safety and success of complex dental surgery is advanced radiography. Cone beam digital CT scanning allows us to take 3-Dimensional, low radiation, high resolution CT scans of your facial anatomy. We can then view these images from different angles, take precise measurements, and easily share 3-D data with other doctors.

Cone beam imaging is ideal for patient comfort. It offers an "open-environment" design that reduces anxiety, and images can be taken in as little as 8.5 seconds, limiting discomfort and exposure to radiation.

Precision Implant Placement

A key to dental implant safety and success is advanced radiography. A CT scan ensures that every possible precaution has been made to reduce the risk of involvement of the nerves in the lower jaw, and the sinuses and nose in the upper jaw. This helps to reduce chair time and the possibility of complications.Until recently, CT scans were only done in hospitals or medical facilities. 

Cone Beam Computerized Tomography Services

We are proud to offer advanced imaging CBCT services to the surrounding dental community of Lansdale, PA. The I-CAT Cone Beam 3-D System is a dental specific CT scanner resulting in low radiation and high resolution for dental diagnosis.

In addition to assisting in implant planning and periodontal diagnosis, this high-resolution technology accurately detects dental caries and identifies endodontic pathology, including potential fractures or other complications. CBCT evaluation is also helpful for oral surgery, airway studies, paranasal sinus conditions and dental pathology.
