Finally - Easy to Understand X-rays
Professional discussion of a 3D catscan generated with an I-Cat cone beam scanner and interpreted with Simplant software. Periodontist Dr. Edward Brant of Long Island, NY essentially trains the patient to read and comprehend the images to facilitate an immediate understanding of his current dental needs.
Discussion about significant bone loss, ongoing bone tissue deterioration and the existance of old root tips left behind from a previous extraction forms the basis of a routine comprehensive examination that combines a treatment planning element as the scan is reviewed.
Patients who learn the basic elements of scan interpretation (easier than old fashioned xrays) are better able to make treatment decisions, in most cases, and especially appreciate why, when considering reconstructive components used in dentistry, there is a logical progession from one treatment to the next.
Most patients learn that while restorative dentistry can be achieved with different products and procedures, the reconstructive aspects should only be done one way... the best way, as defined by the dental surgeon and reflected in the needed changes presented by the catscan.
