At The Dentists, we are committed to staying on the cutting edge of dental technology. We keep ourselves informed of the latest innovations, and sometimes we incorporate a new device or technique into our practice if we think it will benefit our patients.
We are excited to announce the addition of a new scanning machine, the i-CAT® FLX 3D. It produces images of your teeth, mouth and soft tissues, so that we can plan your dental procedures. Please contact us today to learn more.
What is this Technology?
This imaging machine allows our dentists to see your teeth, bones and soft tissue in three dimensions! It enhances the way we plan and perform dental procedures. It can also help us avoid complications by improving visualization of the treatment area.
You may have heard these machines called CBCT or cone beam CTs. They emit very little radiation. This specific model allows us to control the dose of radiation because we can customize it to take a scan of the precise area we need, not a large scan of your entire oral cavity or face.
