In keeping with our philosophy of excellence, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the finest technology available . At Periodontal Solutions of South Florida, we are one of the few offices in the area that affords patients the convenience of in-house 3-D imaging.
The I-cat imaging system, sometimes referred to as a cone beam volumetric scanner, is a three-dimensional radiographic imaging device designed specifically for dental specialists.
With the cone beam scan, Dr. Ramirez can capture and more accurately analyze complete three-dimensional views of critical anatomy for a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation. The scans are made prior to surgery to optimize the selection of the most suitable implant type, size, location and angulation.
When planning a case, you can imagine the diagnostic advantage this technology provides by allowing Dr. Ramirez to see the teeth, jaw and nerves using precisely calibrated measurements. This technology assists Dr. Ramirez in determining whether there is sufficient bone present for placement of a dental implant a safe distance away from vital structures.
This non-invasive, painless and comfortable procedure can greatly enhance our ability to accurately predict the success of implant surgery and other procedures over traditional methods. It can help avoid unnecessary surgery and allow Drs. Ramirez to perform less invasive surgical procedures.
In a comfortable, open environment, right in our office, the scan is accomplished in less than a minute. The results are available immediately to make the most of your visit to our office. Dr. Ramirez can effectively discuss your situation with you and help you to make an informed decision on how best to proceed. We feel that the acquisition of this technology was a tremendously important benefit for our patients.
