i-CAT® Imaging

While CT (computed tomography) imaging has been used in the medical field for over 30 years, it is becoming the new diagnostic tool of choice for orthodontic analysis, diagnosis and treatment planning due to the latest advancements in diagnostic technology such as the revolutionary i-CAT® Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System. This three-dimensional CT technology can provide a quicker full scan of the head than traditional two-dimensional imaging, allowing orthodontists a better visualization of the hard and soft tissues of the craniofacial structures from several perspectives.

In addition to the advantages of traditional CT scans, the i-CAT® Cone Beam releases up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-ray machines, enhancing your safety while providing crisp, clear images for more efficient diagnostic analysis and treatment. We feel our modern, cutting-edge techniques ensure you are receiving the quality care you deserve.

The i-CAT® Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System can immediately produce three-dimensional images in under one minute. This in-office, easy-to-use system provides your orthodontist a comprehensive view of all oral and maxillofacial structures, dramatically increasing the efficiency with which your orthodontist is able diagnose your condition and plan for your treatment.

i-CAT® technology is used for:

  • TMJ assessment
  • Surgical planning
  • Assessment of cleft lip and palates
  • Assessment of the alveolar bone
  • Impacted tooth position
  • Facial analysis
  • Tongue size and posture
  • Airway assessment
  • Placement of dental implants


The new ezlase™ Soft Tissue Laser was created by BIOLASE with one objective in mind: to make soft tissue procedures easier for dentists and more comfortable for patients.

With a wide array of FDA approved procedures, the ezlase™ is ideal for use by dentists and hygienists. Our dental laser allows us to treat many gum procedures, previously only treatable by traditional periodontal surgery.

Unlike periodontal surgery, diode laser treatments are much less invasive and can achieve similar results. Following diode laser gum treatments, the patient exhibits minimal discomfort and can usually resume normal activities the next day. With no stitches, bleeding, and virtually no pain, this is an excellent alternative for many who fear traditional periodontal surgery.

The fact that the laser can remove diseased tissue, kill the bacteria that cause the disease, and stimulates healing makes offering our patients laser therapy a big advantage over traditional methods. Our dental laser can also be used to treat apthous ulcers and herpetic lesions, and to desensitize teeth.
