Our oral surgery practice utilizes cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology to generate high quality 3-D radiographic images.

These incredibly accurate images provide us with detailed and precise clinical information which aids Dr. Vickers in diagnosing dental conditions as well as planning and implementing oral surgery procedures.

A Wealth of Valuable Information about your Health

CT scan technology provides 3-D radiographic images that can be used to diagnose, plan, and treat conditions in the areas of:

  • Orthodontics
  • Implant dentistry
  • TMJ Disorders
  • Airway assessment and sleep apnea
  • Oral and orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery

The CT scan produces anatomically correct and undistorted images of the teeth, jaws, and facial bones. This includes cross-sectional images and panoramic views which can be easily viewed, enhanced, and magnified for even greater detail. With these views, we can evaluate the shape and size of the jaw bone, the position of the teeth and roots, the location of nerve pathways, and the dimensions of the sinus cavities.

Speed, Comfort, and Safety

Your radiographic image can be completed quickly and painlessly to minimize your exposure to radiation while reducing the risk of an accidental movement. The scanner features an open design that won’t leave your feeling “closed in”, and unlike conventional x-rays, no portion of the imaging equipment will be placed inside of the mouth.
