Computerized Tomography

The technology of the computerized tomography, or cone-beam CT, is a break-through diagnostic and treatment planning radiographic technology which is rapidly becoming a standard of care in implant dentistry.  It allows us to diagnose the available bone for the placement of dental implants in 3 dimensions (as opposed to 2-dimensional radiography).  This technology allows Dr. Raanan to look inside the bone and evaluate its quality, quantity and density. It also allows for diagnosing the location of relevant anatomical boundaries to make implant placement more safe and predictable.  Available software further empowers Dr. Raanan with the ability to place implants more precisely and optimizes the final outcome of the treatment.  Our patients benefit from having this powerful diagnostic tool available immediately when the need arises, such as before or after or even intra-surgically.
