I-CAT 3-D Imaging

i-CAT logo

Patients at Green Orthodontics love the i-CAT 3-D Dental Imaging System. The i-CAT uses 95% less radiation than traditional hospital-cased CT scan machines and gives us a 3-dimensional image of the patient's teeth and jaw. The eight second i-CAT scan has less than half the radiation of a regular digital panorex. The i-CAT allows Dr. Green to quickly and precisely plan the exact movement of the teeth without the guesswork of traditional or digital x-rays which are only two-dimensional. 

In addition to moving teeth, braces affect the position and shape of the surrounding bone, gums, lips, cheeks, and muscles of the face. With our 3-D CT scan, we now have the ability to create a complete treatment plan for all factors that the braces will affect. This gives our patients a more beautiful and healthy smile in an extremely precise manner.
