Mahopac Dentist Acquires New Cone Beam CT Scan
September 01, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsSeptember 1, 2015 - Mahopac, NY - Dr. Robert S. Landman is happy to announce that his Mahopac dental practice has recently added a new piece of state-of-the-art equipment to their office: a cone beam CT scan (Computer aided Tomography).
A dental CT scan takes less than 15 minutes to complete and is used to enhance dental implant placement surgery. The scanner produces 3-D images that provide exact details of the targeted implant area. This noninvasive technology provides a cross-sectional view of the gum and bone, giving Dr. Landman a detailed view for exact implant placement.
"We're all excited about our CT equipment," Dr. Landman said. "Computer-aided tomography allows us to improve dental implant placement procedures. I have a better view of the bone width and density, as well helping us avoid vital structures, to prevent patient discomfort and improve the implant's longevity."
A CT scan is comfortable. Patients can breathe normally during the scan as the machine has a dual use function as a Panoramic X-ray, the image most commonly used to diagnose impacted wisdom teeth.
"In order for dental implants to be most effective, they have to be placed with precision," Dr. Landman added. "The CT scan makes it easier to create a more exact and predictable treatment plan to increase the success of the dental implant procedure."
