Instead of using tap water, our office uses distilled water to protect our patients from germs and contamination.
The i-CAT 3-D dental scan system is well in advance of any x-ray system. The i-CAT provides 3-D images of the teeth, jaw, sinuses and skull structure in 1/20th of a second with significantly less radiation than a medical CT scan.
The 3-D scans from the i-CAT provide anatomically accurate data and surgical predictability for:
- Implant placement
- TMJ analysis
- Airway assessments
- Orthognathic surgery
We provide our patients with an intra-oral video examination. This allows both the doctor and the patient to see the condition of the mouth at the same time, then discuss treatment options.
Pharyngometer is non-invasive and only takes a few minutes. The patient sits upright and places the pharyngometer in their mouth. The patient then moves their jaw backward and forward, while sound waves measure airway volume. This locates the most unstable and narrow portions of the airway. This procedure allows for a precise fitting of an oral appliance for treatment. The pharyngometer is used to measure the best jaw position for maintaining an open and stable airway.
The rhinometer gathers information using acoustic reflection. Sound waves are sent up the nasal passageway and are reflected back to accurately map out the topography of the nasal airway. This allows clear identification of the location and severity of any obstruction in the airway. The test is completely non-invasive and takes 30 seconds to complete.
