At the Fitzgerald Implant Center, we use the latest technology to provide patients with the best possible implant experience. With a CAT scan and computer software, we minimize surgery time for patients and deliver more predictable results. Patients and caregivers benefit from the advanced planning that CAT scan technology affords.
A CAT scan is a noninvasive medical test that involves X-rays and sophisticated computer software. The CAT scan gives Dr. Fitzgerald high-quality images of the jaw and sinus cavities, revealing details not seen with traditional X-rays. He can transfer the images to a computer monitor to create 3D models that allow him to plan for surgery.
What does this mean for you?
In the past, dentists and oral surgeons could not see the bone tissue prior to placing the implant. This meant that they would have to adapt to the situation and make adjustments during the surgery. With CAT scan technology, Dr. Fitzgerald can plan the treatment in advance. Benefits include:
- Better safety
- Higher predictability
- Less operation time
- Lower costs
- Increased success rate
Whether you’re a patient receiving implants or you’re caring for someone receiving implants, CAT scan technology will improve the overall experience. Spend less time with the doctor, less time in surgery, and more time enjoying your new teeth! We’re proud to offer innovative solutions at our Plano dental office.
