3D CT Scanner with 10x Less Radiation!
At Crabapple Dental, we believe in giving our patients the best possible care. Our latest investment in our patients is the Vatech Green CT 2. Not only does this help your dentist spot potential problems, but it can ensure proper placement of dental implants.
The new Vatech scanner works quickly, providing high-quality images in just seconds. Because it works so quickly, it exposes patients to as little radiation as possible. While acute radiation poisoning is very rare, it is still important to limit exposure to x-rays, especially for pregnant women.
Four Imaging Types
This machine can also provide your dental team with four different types of imaging. Depending on the symptoms to be diagnosed or the procedure to be performed, your Crabapple Dental dentist can customize the type of imaging they need as well as focus on a specific area.
Vatech Green CT 2 Images:
- PANO: a panoramic view of your teeth and jaw from one side to the other
- CEPH: a side view of the teeth and jaw
- CBCT: a 3D view of your teeth, bones, nerve pathways and soft tissues
- MODEL: a safe radioactive substance is applied to the teeth so the machine can create an accurate 3D model
Your dentist needs to have high-quality images to work from for several reasons. The first is that it is much easier for them to diagnose any potential problems that would not be seen during a visual exam. The second is that high-quality dental imagery makes it easier to perform certain dental procedures. Finally, even though this Vatech machine limits your exposure to radiation, getting high-quality images the first time means you won’t have to go through the process a second time.
