Main applications of CT-Imaging
Dental Implants: Dental implants can now be placed in the optimal position for aesthetics and function. The planning from the 3D scan provides unparalleled views pre-operatively. The surgeon and the restorative dentist can now work in a much more harmonious relationship with no surprises post operatively as to the positioning of the implants.
Orthodontics: One scan will deliver the following views: OPG, Lateral Ceph and also 3D images of the whole upper and lowers jaws. This leads not only to more accurate diagnosis but also of actual lower dose than those films together.
Impacted Teeth: 3D images of impacted teeth (especially the lower third molars) deliver precise views to identify ID nerve/canals within the alveolar bone.
Sinus Anatomy: 3D CT images enables the surgeon to view sinus anatomy and also assess for any pathology before the surgery is done. This provides added safety and assurance to the patient and providing highest possible standard of care.
TMJ: Condyles and surrounding structures can be viewed in 3D images allowing the dentist/specialist greater diagnostic data to enable a more accurate treatment plan and management of TMJ problems
