Technology is Advanced at Jovan Orthodontics
i-CAT® Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System
While CT (computed tomography) imaging is becoming the new diagnostic tool of choice for orthodontic analysis, Jovan Orthodontics uses the revolutionary i-CAT® Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System. This three-dimensional CT technology can provide a quicker full scan of the head, 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 Dr. Jovan with a comprehensive view of all oral and maxillofacial structures, dramatically increasing the efficiency with which Dr. Jovan is able to diagnose your condition and plan for your treatment.
