Oral Maxillofacial Surgery

Clinical application of 3D images in oral maxillofacial surgery provides information that improves patient care:

  • Visualization of the alveolar nerve canal on 3D CT can help prevent nerve damage or assess nerve involvement from extractions or in planning dental implants
  • 3D rendering for maxillofacial cases can guide surgical planning and treatment

3D post-processing is available for applications including:

  • CT Facial Bones
  • CT Mandible for Inferior Alveolar Nerve (IAN)
  • CT Simplant for implant planning

In addition, we provide pre-processing of self-pay dental implant CT exams performed at Mass General Imaging locations in Chelsea, Waltham and Worcester.
