State-of-the-art, three-dimensional dental CT imaging takes the guesswork out of implants. This quick and safe diagnostic imaging exam produces life-like spatial views of the mouth that allows the surgeon determine?if a patient is an implant candidate. With 3D imaging, a surgeon can proceed with confidence, knowing the amount of bone a patient has, the distance to the alveolar nerve, and the exact angles to place the implant.
Dental CT imaging can also help visualize nerve location prior to wisdom tooth extraction.
The radiation used in a dental CT exam is significantly lower than in a conventional CT scan. We also take additional measures and strictly abide by protocols to minimize radiation exposure.
