Cat Scan

What is a CT Scan ? (or CAT Scan)

ComCat Scanputerized (Axial) Tomography , also called a CT Scan (or CAT Scan), a special x-ray equipment that obtains many images from different angles and then combines them together to show a cross-section of the jaws. CT Scan also reveals nerves, maxillary sinuses and other anatomical landmarks.

CT Scan does not take a long time , non-invasive and requiring only a very low radiation exposure, CT scanning is a great aid to specific diagnosis, helping your dentist to determine potential problem areas and in most cases substitutes exploratory surgery.

We believe 3-D dental x-ray imaging using cone beam technology raises the diagnostic bar for radiation safety, patient comfort, and implant diagnosis and treatment planning. This CT scanner is safer, faster, and provides more accurate three-dimensional information of the jaws and sinuses.

One of the highly trained assistants will take the CT Scan, and then our CT analyst will view and discuss it with your Implantologist and/or Dentist.

Why have a CT-Scan?

There are specific cases within the practice of Oral Surgery and Implantology where the Ortho-Pantograph (OP) X-ray is too limited to provide anatomical data to allow us to perform a procedure. In these cases we must use the CT Scan system before the procedure.
