i-CAT FLX imaging 3D system at Contemporary Smiles Dentistry Rochester Hills, Michigan
We have installed and begun to use a new imaging machine—the i-CAT FLX. The i-CAT FLX is a cone beam 3D system, meaning that with one image, we are able to generate a 3D rendering of the face, teeth, and jaws. The image itself is captured in 4.8 seconds, and eliminates the need for any other images to be taken in our office. With the i-CAT FLX 3D image, we are able to clearly visualize the teeth, roots, and sinuses, and in turn, have greater flexibility in planning and treatment choices. The radiation dose of one iCAT image is less than 1/10th the radiation you receive of being in the sun all day, and it is much less than the traditional digital panoramic and lateral ceph x-rays that we have used in the office up to this point! With our new i-CAT FLX, our patients will be able to gain a greater understanding of their own anatomy, conditions, and treatment.
Contemporary Smiles is proud to be the ONLY dentist office in Rochester Hills to currently have the i-CAT FLX imaging system. We are so excited to consistently bring new technological advances to our office—exceeding the standard of care and providing for a more patient-friendly dental imaging experience.
