3D Imaging and planning


Northwest Periodontics and Dental Implants utilizes a Vatech PaX-Duo3D Premium Plus cone beam CT scanner which provides state of the art digital imaging technology to assist in diagnosis, surgical treatment planning and surgical implementation. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provided precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our scanner also allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit exposure to the  area of concern.

Our office uses the latest in 3D imaging software for disease diagnosis and treatment planning for dental implant allowing precision placement and protection of vital structures such as nerves, adjacent teeth, and sinus cavities. Dr. Hovey or Dr. Corning can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your implant1experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
