Do I Need a CT scan for Dental Work?

CT or computed tomography delivers a superior 3 dimensional image that can be examined from every angle.  This allows detailed viewing of the surgical site facilitating predictable treatment outcomes and avoiding surgical complications.

"No more guessing as in Panorex or Intra Oral Periapical views" says Dr. Cherukuri  from her Chino, California family dental practice.
" A patient can go numb on the side of the face if an implant is placed too close the nerve- the nerve will probably never generate" adds Dr. Cherukuri.

Access to CT is readily available and affordable cost makes it a invaluable tool in surgical cases. Cost is a non issue when patient safety is concerned and it is the standard of care.
