This revolutionary computer x-ray provides an in-office three-dimensional scan of the face and jaws. Cone beam technology has brought high-definition images with 90% less radiation compared to hospital scanners.
The i-CAT improves care for:
· Implant surgery
· TMJ disorders
· Sinus pathology
· Jaw cysts or tumors
CT is a medical imaging technique that uses a computer to obtain cross-sectional images of the head or neck. This gives Dr. Lem a more detailed view of the bone and soft tissue to better diagnose and treat patients. Regular x-ray films cannot show volume of the bone. The patient needs to sit upright for 8.5 seconds to complete the scan.

Stem cells are cells found in most, if not all, multi-cellular organisms. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves through mitotic cell division and differentiating into a diverse range of specialized cell types.
A research suggests that coating dental implants with a synthetic bone material prior to implantation allows such implant to become incorporated much more successfully into the jaw, leading to smiles all round.
The results of experiments that focused on 'nanostructures'demonstrated enhanced bone response to dental implants as soon as 4 weeks after implant placement.
