Making Surgery More Predictable

Cone Beam CT imaging is a relatively new advancement that has become available for use in private clinical settings.  The benefits of this type of imaging are the low radiation exposure to patients, the ability to view anatomy which will allow more efficient and accurate surgery, and the reduction of surgical complications.  The images obtained are 3 dimensional and allow visualization of structures in all planes of space.  This technology is available in both the South Surrey and Maple Ridge locations.  In most cases, Dr. Lotay will advise you if this imaging will be beneficial to your case.  The imaging takes under 5 minutes to obtain and a copy of the images are sent to your General Dentist.  Patients can/may also be referred to our office to simply obtain the images for diagnostic purposes.
