i-CAT Cone Beam CT Scanner


Our office is one of the only in the area to offer 3-D Dental Imaging on site. Our i-CAT Cone Beam CT Scanner produces high definition 2-D and 3-D diagnostic images for the ultimate treatment efficiency, while helping to improve dental issues so our patients can experience a better quality of life.

3-D image scans can be used to help diagnose and treatment-plan implants and restorations, endodontic work, periodontic procedures, oral surgery, TMJ and sinus/airway analyses, and orthodontics. We also utilize our i-CAT scanner to take traditional 2-D panoramic digital images, reducing the need for additional x-rays while in the chair.

The i-CAT scanner offers low dose scan settings that allow our assistants the flexibility to capture a range of image sizes to fit individual patients cases. The process of taking a scan is quick and easy and depending on what images are needed can take from five to 30 seconds. Generally for a scan of both arches, the patient is seated and positioned in such a way to cut the dose of radiation and lower the scan time to 20-30 seconds.

The Tx-Studio software technology allows us to view the image in 30-60 seconds, giving the doctor immediate access to the scan and treatment tools. The doctor can then consult with the patient as they view the patient's scan. Combined with the CAD technology used in our lab, the 3-D scanner is an invaluable high-tech tool our office uses to diagnose, educate, and treat patients.


X-rays are a focused beam of x-ray particles passed through bone which produce an image on special film, showing the structure through which it passed. This provides the familiar black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and disease.

Digital radiography allows us to take x-rays using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Schick CDR Digital Intra-oral Radiographs are designed to provide an outstanding image with less discomfort to the patient. There are several types of intra-oral x-rays, each showing different sections of the teeth.

  • Bite-Wing X-rays: This x-ray shows details of the upper and lower teeth in one area of the mouth. It also shows a tooth from its crown to about the level of the supporting bone. It is used to determine if there is decay in the tooth, if the crown is properly fitted, or to determine marginal integrity of a filling.
  • Periapical X-rays: This type of x-ray shows the whole tooth, from its crown to beyond the end of the root where the tooth is adhered in the jaw. This x-ray is used to identify any irregularities in the root structure or the surrounding bone.
  • Occlusal X-rays: This type of x-ray shoes the entire arch of the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. It is used to show the full tooth development and placement within the mouth.

Panoramic X-rays: This type of x-ray shows the entire mouth area, including all of the upper and lower teeth, their roots, the jaw bone, and sinus cavity. Using this, the dentist can detect the position of each tooth and any emerging teeth. In addition, the dentist can identify any impacted teeth. Panoramic x-rays provide details which allow the dentist to check for cavities, check the health of tooth roots and the bone surrounding the tooth, and can assist in the diagnosis of tumors. These x-rays help the dentist monitor the general health of your teeth and jaw bone.

Using this technology, we are able to take an x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your teeth and bone that can easily be enhanced to assist in the diagnosis of dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.


An Intraoral Camera is about the size of a pen, and can be inserted into the mouth to help clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums.

With this advanced technology we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera are sent to a computer that when viewed allows us to clearly see and diagnose dental problems much earlier than with traditional dental technology. Because images are displayed on the computer monitors, our patients are also to see the treatment area and are able to gain a better understanding of dental procedures being performed.


For some procedures, the dentist will wear a pair of technical glasses called surgical telescopes. These powerful glasses have magnifiers that allow the dentist to see fine details that would go unnoticed to the naked eye.
