Mount Pleasant, SC (PRWEB) July 20, 2016
Dr. Kevin Hogan recently acquired the VaTech PaX i3D Green Cone Beam CT at his practice to enhance the accuracy of procedures such as dental implants and the comfort of his patients. Dr. Hogan is an esteemed dentist in Mt. Pleasant, SC, who strives to stay on the forefront of dental technology. This cutting-edge dental imaging system allows Dr. Hogan to capture precise 3D images and offer successful treatment results without exposing patients to high doses of radiation.
The VaTech PaX i3D Green CBCT is a rapid scan CT, which means patients do not have to remain still for long periods of time while the machine works, it only requires less than six seconds for each scan. Any motion the technology does detect is minimized to help improve picture quality, avoiding the necessity of multiple scans. As an experienced dentist in Mt. Pleasant, SC, Dr. Hogan recognizes that these qualities are immensely beneficial to patients. Some patients may be anxious or nervous about their time at the dentist, and offering quick, effective imaging can not only increase the success of the procedure, but help simplify the process and make them feel more relaxed.
One of the reasons Dr. Hogan chose this 3D green imaging technology is because it emits a lower dose of radiation than other imagers. In the past, some patients may have had to choose forgoing care due to issues with excess radiation from X-rays. Even though the scan is done with less radiation, it still produces a superior image. This allows Dr. Hogan to plan precise, individualized procedures for each of his patients, whether he is using the image to aid in placing dental implants or a full mouth reconstruction.
