Until recently, traditional dental x-rays were only able to provide limited information about the state of your mouth. Dentists relied on experience and knowledge to diagnose and develop treatment plans for each patient. However, advances in technology have allowed periodontics professionals to get the information they need to place more successful dental implants.
The i-Cat 3-D Digital Imaging Scanner (or Cone Beam) produces a high-resolution 3-D image of the mouth. It needs only half the amount of radiation of digital x-rays and takes only 3-5 seconds to complete. The images are then reconstructed on the computer screen and used in conjunction with software called Simplant. Simplant allows us to view the jawbone from multiple angles and ensures proper and precise placement of tooth implants.
Patients come to us for their imaging from all over New York City, including Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Canarsie, Mill Basin, Marine Park and nearby locations in Brooklyn, NY.
