CT Scanning Technology

3D Cone Beam CT Scanning

Pi Dental Center now offers patients and area doctors advanced diagnosis with the Cone Beam CT Scanner. Each scan is thoroughly evaluated by a maxillofacial radiologist who has been a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology since 1996. Doctors and patients receive a complete report outlining all findings and including images that illustrate findings. CT scanning technology has become an valuable tool for dentists.

Any of our patients who are interested in having a scan performed can request this service by speaking to any of the staff. Area dentists can call our office to schedule a scan for one of their patients.

Pi Dental Center is able to diagnose a wide array of conditions with our in-office three-dimensional imaging x-ray machine. The CT scanner is quick and easy to use with greater predictability of treatment and it provides a full continuum of services from diagnosis to treatment. Pi Dental Center provides this advanced service in a very comfortable setting with a highly qualified staff.

Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging for dental applications provides high-definition, digital imaging with less radiation to the patient. A typical scan time is only 5.9 seconds.  Computer controlled software delivers quick and easy reconstruction of critical anatomical information.

Pi Dental Center’s CT scanner provides unparalleled technology that produces better results. As the need for more sophisticated and immediate procedures increases, our advanced in-office imaging system provides dentists and their patients with more accurate information for expanding general dentistry, oral and orthognathic surgery, implantology, TMJ analysis, spinal studies, airway assessment, periodontal, orthodontic, impaction and many other dental procedures.

The maxillofacial radiologist evaluates all scans taken by Pi Dental Center. The purpose of this image examination is to provide an evaluation of the regional anatomical volume. Evaluation is limited to the capability of CBCT imaging. This is a consultative report only and is not intended to be a definitive diagnosis or treatment plan.
