Technology That Sets Us Apart
The Technologies employed at Arizona Jaw Surgery are as modern and accurate as any on the market. These technologies combine to make records as seamless and easy on you as possible. They also allow us to generate a virtual patient which can be shared with referring offices and you, the patient, to allow input on treatments and planning. This means you can have direct input into your treatment and how it might affect you.
Cone Beam CT Scan
The iCAT-FLX system gives Arizona Jaw Surgery state-of-the-art technology.
Our 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office. The iCAT FLX scanner allows us to choose the scanning area that best suits your specific treatment needs, thereby limiting your radiation exposure.
The iCAT FLX system provides unmatched visualization and anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning as well as addressing any questions you may have. Dr. Wasson can use this innovative technology to share 3D images with your referring doctor – allowing collaboration on your care and creating optimal outcomes.
Intraoral Digital Scanner
The Carestream CS3800 wireless digital intra-oral scanner replaces traditional impressions (and the choking/gagging on impression material) allowing a quick and accurate scan without the need for stone models.
This technology allows us to share your impressions digitally with your other providers to avoid the need for multiple impressions at different offices.
We can also merge your digital impression with your CT scan to create a virtual patient model with detail of your skull, face, soft tissues, and teeth allowing us the most accurate mode of patient evaluation and treatment planning.
Dolphin 3D with Surgical Planning is the most realistic method of treatment planning for your corrective jaw surgery. This software merges your CT scan, digital impression, and an optional facial photo to allow us to generate a singular patient model with the most accurate data possible.
Once this digital patient is created, we can then perform virtual “surgery” to see what changes would occur and how it would affect your bite, face, and esthetics. This allows us to know what would happen before it actually occurs, thereby creating the most effective means of treatment planning available. It also allows us to share this information with your referring doctors as well as you, the patient, so everyone is on the same page and knows what to expect prior to your surgery.
3D printing in our office allows to generate all splints and other needed materials in-house to avoid treatment delays, inaccuracies, and shipping delays. It also allows us to decrease treatment costs and again allows sharing between offices as needed.
All of these technologies combine to provide you with the easiest, most painless, and most accurate records possible ensuring your experience and results are as well.
