There is a synergy between clinicians in multiple professional offices. My practice is a Naperville dental specialist who provides beauty and functional services to patients of all ages so my patients can accompany me and my team to meet all their dental needs. Dr. Manal Ibrahim and I at the Innovation Orthodontics Center of my wife can treat patients as a single expert or team. We have dental equipment, which is very important to help us get more accurate diagnosis for the best results. This is definitely the case with the i-CATTM FLXTM Cone Beam 3D imaging system.
3D Imaging – More Accurate Diagnosis to Plan for Best Results
i-CAT scans can be used for a variety of procedures and shared with referring physicians. Patients can benefit from 3D scanning and traditional 2D radiography. When X-rays are needed, I can collect conventional pan- or low-dose radiation scans from the i-CAT FLX.
The pan view can be pulled from the 3D scan. Scanning data is very valuable when planning surgical extractions. If we see signs of tooth decay, we can use our DEXISTM Platinum sensor for personal or apical massage. This intraoral digital imaging is also useful in surgery when implants are placed.
As a prosthodontist and a planting doctor, I found that the anatomical information of the 3D scan can help me implant more accurately and efficiently. With 3D views, I can better understand the shape, width, and height of the bones and surrounding structures before surgery. The Tx STUDIOTM software with i-CAT system allows me to use the integrated therapy tool for implant planning and the ability to integrate surgical guides. This greatly reduces the time it takes to place the implant and translates into less discomfort and healing time for the patient.

Through orthodontist-Dental Rehabilitation Dr. Ibrahim, I can pre-plan potential implant sites during orthodontic treatment and capture all our initial imaging needs in a single scan and provide teeth, roots, TMJ Accurate 3D view of the airways and sinuses. Dr. Ibrahim can assess the position of the teeth and observe the affected teeth and periodontal tissue while exploring the needs of bone grafts. During the integration of the implant and orthodontic treatment, she can move the tooth to a suitable position, and when the orthodontic stage is completed, the bone graft is ready for implantation. Once the implant is placed, we can capture a low dose of QuickScan+. This setup allows us to perform a full dentition 3D scan at a lower dose than the panoramic X-ray* to check if the tooth has moved into the bone. The right place.
With a highly visual 3D scan, the patient can see where the tooth must move, where the implant is, and how all treatments will make our plan a reality.
