i-CAT® Cone Beam 3-D Imaging


The i-CAT® Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System allows Dr Burkey to provide quick, comfortable, safe and effective imaging for the most precise dental and orthodontic diagnosis possible. Information not visible using standard 2-D x-rays is now available using 3-D imaging technology for a more thorough evaluation and diagnosis. Dr. Burkey uses this state-of-the-art imaging to help provide you with the most comprehensive treatment possible. Our office also takes advantage of this 3-D imaging to deliver SureSmile®Technology which utilizes archwires bent by robots to precisely fit your teeth together with 30% shorter treatment times!

i -CAT® 3-D imaging also provides data that is extremely useful for other dental treatments or diagnoses such as:

  • Diagnosing extra or missing teeth
  • Dental implants
  • Wisdom teeth extractions
  • Evaluation of impacted teeth
  • TMJ treatment
  • Airway assessments and sleep apnea
  • Full facial and jaw 3D images

Patients can take advantage of a more complete dental treatment with i-CAT® imaging. Special features for patients include:

  • Usually a short, 15-second scan provides enough data for a thorough diagnosis
  • A safer diagnosis with a tiny fraction of the radiation used by traditional CT scanners
  • Increased comfort - patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
  • A more cost-effective imaging system
  • Doctors can easily share the data with patients, so patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment

Dr Burkey is pleased to offer i-CAT® 3-D imaging for orthodontic patients as well as for patients of oral surgeons, periodontists, and general dentists when 3-D imaging is beneficial for other dental treatments.
