It is important to our oral surgeons at Permian Basin Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center that your diagnosis is as accurate as possible. Therefore, we use cone beam scanning technology in the form of the iCAT 3D CT scan, guaranteeing that all patients receive the most sophisticated diagnostic imaging required to make the most precise diagnosis of your oral and maxillofacial condition. This enables Drs. Porter, Fuentes, and Erickson to make an accurate diagnosis, and the ability to plan the treatment for your specific condition that ensures correction and optimal recovery.
The iCAT cone beam 3D CT scan provides additional information that cannot be obtained through typical methods (such as X-rays), thereby helping our surgeons to identify the best surgical procedure for the problem presented. These scans also help our surgeons adequately prepare by eliminating surprises before the procedure, preventing any unnecessary procedures, and better prepare us for your upcoming surgery. All of these benefits result in less operating time and fewer complications for the patient.
If you have not already received a 3D CT scan before your initial consultation with Permian Basin Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, you may receive one during your first visit to our office.
