We understand that dental procedures may cause some patients to become nervous or anxious, so we take every precaution possible to ensure patient safety and comfort. Our talented oral surgeons and dentists are available every step of your procedure to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

In-Office 3D Cone Beam CT

At Staten Island Oral Surgery, we strive to provide the highest standard of care to our patients by using the most innovative techniques and top-quality equipment. Our in-office 3D Cone Beam CT scanner is one of the most advanced imaging devices our office uses to most accurately and efficiently diagnose your oral surgery concerns.

The CBCT scanner offers the highest quality images and most complete information – with 0.01mm accuracy – on the anatomy of a patient’s mouth, face, and jaw areas. This precision leads to the most accurate diagnosis, treatment plan, and predictable outcomes for your surgical procedures, especially dental implants. Additionally, this in office scanner is less costly and uses significantly lower radiation doses than traditional, hospital-based CTs.

Our patients prefer the in-office CBCT scanner because of its convenience and comfort. Patients are seated in an open environment, while the CT scanner captures the natural orientation of your anatomy. Within a few minutes, the data is transferred to a computer and displayed on an interactive 3-D mapping tool that allows our oral surgeons to easily format and select desired regions for immediate viewing. These detailed images help our oral surgeons diagnose medical problems earlier and more efficiently.
