Dr. Schultz Integrates 3D Dental Imaging System in Practice


Savage, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/26/2015 -- At Smiles of Distinction, Dr. Bart Schultz's patients enjoy the benefits of the most advanced 3D dental and facial imaging system available. The practice makes use of the award-winning i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System for greater clinical control and a more efficient workflow.

Years of experience has taught Dr. Schultz the importance of precision in dentistry, which i-CAT® delivers simply and conveniently. The system gives him direct access to advanced 3D treatment tools for implants and restorations, oral and maxillofacial surgery, as well as TMJ and sinuses. Not only is the imaging process quicker, easier, and more cost-effective, it also exposes patients to less radiation than the usual CT scans. In addition, it assesses tooth relationships and relative connection, making it an important piece of equipment for orthodontic treatment.

"Accurately capturing the unique anatomy of individual patients, i-CAT produces high-definition 3D images that allow for the best treatment available," Dr. Schultz declares, "From diagnosis through planning, treatment, and successful case completion, this system provides us with the flexibility to select specifically desired scans in order to manage radiation dose control. We can optimize orthodontic treatment plans, map surgical treatment plans, and place and restore implants with greater accuracy and confidence."

Using i-CAT®, Dr. Schultz is able to map an entire course of treatment, from surgical placement of the implant titanium root, all the way to final restoration. An extensive library of implant templates ensures the best possible selection of implant type, size, location, and viewing bones that are at angles to one another prior to surgery.

"Analyzing the scans together with my patients helps them to better understand their diagnosis, treatment plan, and expected outcome in one convenient visit," he adds.
