Cone Beam CT Dental Imaging

The current imaging standard of care in dentistry and dental implantology is the use of three dimensional x-ray studies. These images allow your doctor the needed and highly valuable diagnostic information so they can best plan and execute complex surgical care. The highly comfortable and quick CBCT scan will allow the doctors to achieve the following:

  • Visualize internal anatomy that cannot be diagnosed externally or in 2D images
  • Analyze the position and orientation of critical structure, like nerves, teeth roots, previous implants, the sinus and airways
  • Prepare all necessary surgical guides
  • Assess the risk of surgical complications
  • Reduce the length and cost of therapy

Advanced Treatment Planning

CBCT diagnostic images can be easily converted into Simplant software for pre-surgical case evaluation and planning. Your referring doctor can receive a viewable animation to help him measure and analyze your case from every aspect. The data can also be used to fabricate your custom made lithographic surgical guides for use in your specific surgery. Dr. Krakowiak has extensive experience in the use of CT technology and has lectured and published extensivley on the techniques of image guided surgical procedures.
