i-CAT® Imaging

For an orthodontist, visualization is everything. To see is to know, and to know is to avoid problems. The revolutionary i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D imaging system allows Dr. Jeff to scan your head much quicker than a traditional two-dimensional imaging system with up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-ray machines.

In under one minute, our in-office, safe and easy-to-use i-CAT Cone Beam 3D imaging system can produce 3D images to give us a comprehensive view of your facial and mouth structures to help Dr. Jeff diagnose orthodontic issues and devise a course of action for your orthodontic treatment more efficiently.

  • Facial analysis

  • Airway assessment

  • Jaw bone assessment

  • Posture and size of the tongue
