Offers A Cutting Edge Approach to Dental Implant Diagnostic
WHY CONE BEAM TECHNOLOGY?
Cone Beam 3-D images provide high-definition, three-dimensional,
digital data on precise anatomical information of all
oral and maxillofacial structures with less radiation
to the patient.
The i-CAT Enhances the Way Dentists See Their Patients
Surgical Predictability - The i-CAT gives dentists
the complete anatomical information on bone and pathology
prior to surgery, resulting in less trauma and predictable
Navigational Predictability - The anatomically
accurate i-CAT images allow dentists to successfully
create surgical plans and surgical guides prior to surgery.
Distortion-Free Measurements - The i-CAT produces
anatomically accurate 3-D images used to create precise
treatment plans leading to the most accurate treatment
plans and successful surgical procedures.
Work Flow - The i-CAT takes 8.9-second open-environment
patient scans and, within minutes, the data is transferred
to the workstation computer for the dentist to begin
diagnosis and treatment planning.
i-CAT Benefits for the Patient
- The i-CAT offers the highest level of surgical predictability,
resulting in successful surgical outcomes for patients.
- Over ten times less radiation compared to a medical
- A quick and easy 8.9-second scan producing the most
anatomically accurate 3-D images of the mouth, face,
- An open-environment scan increasing the patient's
- Lower patient cost than a medical CT.
- Reduces surgery time.
- The i-CAT is available to patients at Tuckerton
Dental to avoid hospital visits and multiple appointments.
- Within minutes of the i-CAT scan, dentists are able
to offer patients an immediate virtual diagnosis and
treatment plan-all in one visit.
- Dr. Petrosky can easily share the 3-D data with
a patient's orthodontists, oral surgeon, or medical
practitioner using free I-CAT Vision Software.

3-D IMAGING - A TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH IN DIAGNOSIS
Right In The Office
Now, patients visiting Tuckerton Dental will benefit
from having the most advanced 3-D dental and facial
imaging available. Patients can view their CT scan along
with Dr. Petrosky, which will allow us to better understand
their diagnosis, treatment plan and expected outcome
in one convenient visit. Patients no longer have to
leave the office and visit a radiology center to have
the CT scans obtained. Plus the patient does not require
an additional consultation appointment with their surgeon
to benefit from additional imaging.
3 Dimensional Imaging
The i-CAT's 3-D, volumetric imaging system provides
a complete view of all oral and maxillofacial structures,
giving the most thorough diagnostic information possible.
Dr. Petrosky can more accurately diagnose and predictably
treat patients than with conventional 2 dimensional
imaging. Every aspect of the facial skeleton can be
evaluated with distortion-free images reconstructed
from true volumetric data gathered by an advanced digital
sensor. Measurements are all one-to-one, with no magnification
Standard of Care
The standard of care has changed. Patients are more
informed and demand a higher level of care. Dr. Petrosky
can now determine precise tooth position and the proximity
of other vital structures such as adjacent teeth, the
inferior alveolar nerve canal, the maxillary sinus walls,
the nasal cavity and cortical borders.
Impacted Teeth in 3 Dimensions
Because of the I-CAT Scan, patients with impacted teeth
will benefit from less surgical uncertainty than when
diagnosed with 2 dimensional periapical or panoramic
radiographs. We can now locate the impacted tooth precisely
in 3 dimensions. This reduces surgery and anesthesia
time which translates into smoother and more pain-free
The precise location of an impacted tooth and its exact
relationship to the inferior alveolar nerve, maxillary
sinus or nasal cavity is identified. This will allow
our patients to understand their risk of complications.
With this technology, we can better plan and perform
dentoalveolar surgery of all kinds.
Where is that supernumerary tooth? Orthodontic applications
are numerous. From finding and defining the exact location
of impacted and supernumerary teeth to full facial skeleton
reconstructions, the applications of this technology
to help orthodontists is limitless.
The Ultimate in Implant Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
The I-CAT provides us the best information available
with which to treatment plan implant placement. Widely
accepted as the ultimate diagnostic study for implant
treatment planning, we now have the ability right in
our office to study the maxilla and mandible, demonstrate
the conditions to you and your patient and obtain predictable
results with custom drill guides.
Vital structures and bone morphology at desired implant
sites are identified and measured with absolute distortion
free data that's reconstructed in three dimensions.
With this technology, in the convenience of our office
at Tuckerton Dental, implant planning is optimized because
we are able to visualize the opposing dentition while
examining the proposed implant site. The I-CAT Scan
provides for better implant placement and prosthetic
A Myriad of Applications
The I-CAT has applications for every dental specialty.
Endodontics, Orthodontics, temporomandibular joint studies,
implants, pathology, trauma, congenital defects, orthognathics
and more. We invite you to come and see how we can help
you and your patients.
