Written by Dr. Collins on May 23, 2017

Our Cheney dental team makes it a priority to incorporate the latest tools and technologies into our practice, so that we can help our patients get the high-quality, patient-friendly treatments that they need. One of the most effective, and, frankly, impressive, advancements in dentistry today is i-CAT technology. Keep reading to learn more about how i-CAT works and whom it can help.

i-Cat refers to scanning technology and software that allows our team to get high-quality images of your teeth and maxillofacial structure. These images are far superior to traditional X-rays for a number of reasons:

· The image resolution is better, so that our team is able to see more details and there are fewer issues with clarity

· We are able to manipulate and move the images using image software—this means that we can zoom in and see a larger number of angles when necessary

· These images work with planning software that allows our team to map out where in the mouth we will place implants etc. This type of image mapping is incredibly beneficial when it comes to communicating and pre-planning for treatment as a team.

· X-ray exposure is less than that of traditional 2-D X-ray technology

i-CAT technology is indispensable in the world of modern restorative dentistry. One of the major ways in which we utilize i-CAT is for pre-planning dental implant surgery. We are able to pinpoint the exact spots along your gum line where the implant roots should go. Meticulous pre-planning helps to ensure a stress-free and successful treatment process for the patient. This technology also allows our team to take on more complicated dental cases.
