With this in mind, we are pleased to offer the i-CAT® FLX Cone Beam 3D system. 

 The i-CAT® FLX Cone Beam 3D system provides un-paralleled technology that produces optimal images. The i-CAT digital imaging machine utilizes special cone beam scanning technology and 3D modeling software to give us precise images of your teeth, bones, airway and soft tissue. With the speed, comfort and low dose radiation of our i-CAT system, we can precisely plan the exact movement of your teeth.

How Does it Work? 

The i-CAT does a complete 360 degree fast and painless scan of your head and mouth. A series of low-dose images are converted into a high-resolution view through sophisticated 3D software. This high-resolution view gives our doctors a better understanding of findings and treatment options.

A better diagnosis means a better treatment plan for you. More accurate and highly defined information of the teeth, jaws, and facial complex allows us to develop the most efficient and effective treatment plan customized for each patient, and carried through to successful case completion. This advanced 3D technology allows our doctors to easily select the appropriate scan for each patient at the lowest acceptable radiation dose. 

The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, which is why we utilize the i-CAT system. Unlike traditional imaging equipment, the i-CAT system emits the lowest level of radiation while providing a superior image. We are delighted to offer our patients this exceptionally reliable imaging technology with an unprecedented safety rating.
