3D Imaging

Oral x-rays are commonly performed at dental and oral surgery offices everywhere, however, differing methods come with different levels of detail. At Longmont Oral, Facial and Implant Surgery, we use a state-of-the-art iCAT system that allows us to take precise, clear images. This not only aids in increasing the precision of our services but our diagnoses as well, granting us the ability to deliver a clearer diagnosis to patients

The iCAT system gives our oral & maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Drs. Andrus and Howard diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.

Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The iCAT scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.

The iCAT system brings the latest 3D technology to Longmont Oral, Facial and Implant Surgery, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and helps us to better explain the particulars of your case, as well as address any questions you may have. Drs. Andrus and Howard can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
