Cone Beam CT Scans
A key to the safety and success of complex dental surgery is advanced radiography. Cone beam digital CT scanning allows us to take 3-Dimensional, low radiation, high resolution CT scans of your facial anatomy. We can then view these images from different angles, take precise measurements, and easily share 3-D data with other doctors.
Cone beam imaging is ideal for patient comfort. It offers an "open-environment" design that reduces anxiety, and images can be taken in as little as 8.5 seconds, limiting discomfort and exposure to radiation.
SimPlant - Computer-Guided Implant PlacementCorrect implant placement maximizes safety, longevity and the cosmetic end result. Precision implant placement begins with a CT scan that must be extensively analyzed.
SimPlant is a computer system that automatically analyzes CT scan information and provides exact placement perimeters for optimum results. This advanced system gives immediate guidance as to the exact size of implant needed and the ideal placement location. Case planning between Dr. Jirsa and your restorative dentist can then be done.
Additionally, the SimPlant analysis can be immediately sent to our dental lab who will use it to manufacture a surgical guide. Implant placement becomes completely computer-guided, eliminating any possible surgical error.
Cone Beam Computerized Tomography Services
We are proud to offer advanced imaging CBCT services to the surrounding dental community of Phoenix. Our PaxDuo 3D machine is a dental specific CT scanner resulting in low radiation and high resolution for dental diagnosis.
In addition to assisting in implant planning and periodontal diagnosis, this high-resolution technology accurately detects dental caries and identifies endodontic pathology, including potential fractures or other complications. CBCT evaluation is also helpful for oral surgery, airway studies, paranasal sinus conditions and dental pathology.
