State of the art Imaging Modality – Latest CT Scanner
The Cone Beam CT Scanner is fast becoming the standard for advanced surgical care as it provides the surgeon excellent 3 D imaging of the patient’s facial skeleton for precise diagnosis and optimal surgical planning. In cases like wisdom tooth surgery, it can reliably tell the surgeon where the inferior dental nerve is located and take away the guess work from interpretation of 2 D x rays in the past. The low dose of radiation (equivalent to 2 non digital OPG films) coupled to its excellent imaging can help the surgeon to plan the positions of dental implants or avoid the nerve resulting in safer surgery and improved surgical outcome.
