Precise Imaging. Better Smiles.
At Cronin & Czarnik Orthodontics in Westminster, CO, we use the i-CAT 3D imaging system. The combination of low-radiation cone beam scanning technology and 3D modeling software gives us a three-dimensional view of your entire craniofacial structure, including your teeth, bones, temporomandibular joints, soft tissues and airway. Using the scans, Dr. Carolyn Cronin and Dr. Scott Czarnik can precisely plan the movement of each individual tooth in your mouth for a truly customized smile designed to complement your unique facial features.
How i-CAT Imaging Works
You’ll sit down in a chair and the i-CAT machine will rotate around your head taking scans of your head and mouth. The process is comfortable, painless and only takes a few seconds. The scans are then converted into high-resolution, 3D images, providing Dr. Cronin and Dr. Czarnik with much more information than a 2D x-ray.
The doctors can zoom, enhance the contrast and use other features to see every detail of your mouth from all angles. They’re also able to understand the relationship between your teeth and jaw and the rest of your anatomy. This helps them create an accurate diagnosis and personalized, detail-oriented treatment plan to give you a smile that functions as good as it looks!
iCAT imaging emits the lowest level of radiation and fewer exposures are needed. Because of the detail, it also means you won’t have to receive multiple types of x-rays.
Not only is the scan itself fast, there’s also no film to develop. Instead, we can access the 3D images of your teeth, jaw and face almost immediately, which saves you time.
The digital, extraoral scans are completed in seconds while you’re seated in an open area. You won’t have to deal with uncomfortable bitewings or an enclosed space.
Detailed and Accurate
i-CAT scans have exceptional detail and definition. Thanks to the unparalleled visual information, your orthodontist can design a smile based on your individual anatomy.
