Charlotte Periodontist Now Using the Latest Technology for Surgeries

December 08, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
December 8, 2015 - Charlotte, NC - Dr. Matthew Ficca of Metrolina Perio is very happy to announce that his practice is using the technologically advanced i-CAT for periodontal and implant surgeries.

"As a periodontist, I am always trying to stay current with the latest technologies and methods used in dentistry," Dr. Ficca said. "This is why we are now utilizing an i-CAT Cone Beam scanner. This scanner improves both surgical planning and precision to improve desired results."

The i-CAT is the most up-to-date tool employed for digitally guided surgeries. The scanner produces 3D diagnostic images that display all parts of the mouth in extraordinary detail. This advanced technology is often utilized for dental implant placement and periodontal and cosmetic surgeries that involve crown lengthening and bone grafting. The computer guided procedure allows for much more control which will improve planning, treatment and healing process.

"With the i-CAT, results are now much more predictable and will improve the patient's overall experience," he added. "That's the main reason we're using it, we want to offer our patients the best possible dental care."
