Cone Beam technology is quickly advancing the dental industry’s leading approach to treatment planning and diagnosis. With a quick scan around the patient’s head, Dr. Patty and Dr. Valiquette can now view 3-D patient anatomy to accomplish more precise evaluation for predictable treatment results in shorter appointment times for the patient.
Dentistry’s Most Accurate Imaging
Dr. Patty and Dr. Valiquette have chosen this technology to enhance treatment care for patients in the greater Monroe, NC area. Using the i-CAT scanner’s high resolution images, Dr. Patty and Dr. Valiquette 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 3-D dental imaging is used for implant planning, TMJ and airway analysis, orthodontic and oral surgery planning, and to detect pathologies such as cysts and tumors.
Safety and Convenience for Patients
Dr. Patty and Dr. Valiquette can take an immediate low radiation scan for patients without the inconvenience of sending them to a hospital. Once the scan is complete, the doctors are able to share an immediate visual diagnosis to help patients truly visualize and better understand treatment options. These preoperative scans are easily shared with other doctors helping Dr. Patty and Dr. Valiquette perform less invasive procedures through increased precision, thus reducing risks for patients.
“It is our goal to provide the best care for our patients. To meet this goal, we have incorporated many high-tech devices and procedures,” relays Dr. Patty. “Therefore, we are delighted to now offer Cone Beam 3-D technology to the patients who put their trust in us.
