At Bentz Dental Implant and Prosthodontic Center, Dr. Bentz and our team utilize dentistry’s most accurate imaging machine, also known as the i-CAT 3D, to enhance treatment care for our patients. Using the i-CAT scanner’s high-resolution images, we can obtain highly-accurate and detailed three-dimensional views of all anatomies such as bone, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways, and sinuses. This 3D imaging allows for enhanced diagnostic accuracy of all structures of the face and neck area, including dental structures, implant planning, TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and airway analysis, orthodontic and oral surgery planning, and to detect pathologies our patients may have, including cysts or tumors.
i-CAT 3D imaging also allows for safety and convenience for our patients. Each nine-second scan exposes a patient to less radiation than a traditional X-ray, and is conveniently available right here in our office, so there’s no need to refer patients to the hospital or outpatient imaging lab.
Once the scan is complete, we are able to share an immediate visual diagnosis to help patients visualize and better understand their treatment options. These scans are easily shared with other dental professionals, helping Dr. Bentz and our team perform less-invasive procedures through increased precision. This, in turn, reduces risks for our patients.
