Superiority of the I-CAT over the Traditional X-ray
While X-rays only provide two dimensional images of the jaw, the i-CAT® enables us to the structures of the jaw in three dimensions. This enables us to precisely ascertain the volume of bone available for the placement of dental implants. Dentists and oral surgeons are now able to assess the proximity of anatomic structures to intended implant sites and identify pathology, increasing the predictability of the procedures. All this can be Accomplished with minimal radiation exposure of less than 10% that of a medical CT scan and less than half of a full series of dental x-rays.
With the advantages we believe this emerging technology will become the new standard of care for the placement of dental implants and other procedures.
