Also known as a CAT scan, a CT scan (CT) is a computed tomography scan that permits dental professionals to see inside of your body. Using a combination of x-ray technology and a computer, a CT scan creates images of your organs, bones, and other tissues. CTs show more detail than regular x-rays, making them a more comprehensive diagnostic tool. Dr. Carolyn Walker uses Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic technology to know precisely where to place your dental implants by showing her the correct angle, rotation, depth, width, and height of both the implant and the restoration. The successful treatment of several dental issues hinges on an accurate diagnosis. CTs allow Dr. Walker a detailed insight into your condition so that a thorough treatment plan can be created.

 

 

Using this digital diagnostic equipment, we can review a complete 3D image of your skeletal anatomy, including your skull, neck, jawbone, and teeth. You will feel no pain or discomfort as we use the machine so all you have to do is relax. Depending on the area of the images, you will either lie down or sit up in a chair. Within 15 minutes, we’ll know whether implants are ideal for you and exactly where and how to place them, long before we ever begin the procedure. Once we have collected the necessary images, we can place the implants. Once the implants are in place, they will work to: maintain your dental health, stabilize your bite, preserve your facial contours, and maximize the function of your mouth.

Great work

Highly professional and courteous staff! They were able to see me on short notice. However, I had a simple extraction done and, when it was all said and done, it cost me a whopping $480. Perhaps I was billed incorrectly, but that is on the high side for a simple extraction, compared to what others in the area would charge. I only went here because the dentist I normally use was booked. Other than that, highly professional and friendly.Great if you have a dental emergency and can't get a quick appointment anywhere else.

Took my 13 yo son there, with his Arkansas smile. They made him feel very comfortable and welcome. He said he felt no pain and he liked the people there. 9 cavities filled and teeth look really good. The walks around showing everyone his new Bandera Smile. Thanks guys he will be back for his next dental checkup in 6 months

Are CT scans safe?

When used for dental purposes, these scans emit much lower doses of radiation than traditional CT scans, such as those you might receive in a hospital. However, they do have higher levels of radiation than that of a standard x-ray. Even so, these scans are generally thought to be very safe.
