What are the benefits of the CaviTAU®?
Examination with the CaviTAU® is non-invasive. All radiological examinations such as Panoramic x-ray, Digital-Volume-Tomography (DVT) or Cone-Beam-Computer-Tomogram (CBCT) are linked to health risks due to their radiation exposure. CaviTAU® ultrasound however is completely harmless because it avoids ionising X-rays.
In accordance with the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) CaviTAU® should be the device of choice to check for jaw bone inflammation / infection because it has zero radiation.
CaviTAU® is a safe and effective imaging device for jawbone examination, it optimises treatment planning by providing fast, accurate, reliable and reproduceable results.
CaviTAU® is the most precise method to determine problems of jawbone density.
WHEN and WHY should you have a CaviTAU® scan?
Research shows that jawbone inflammation can have consequences to your overall health. Therefore, if you suffer from any kind of chronic disease the CaviTAU® can show if you have infection or inflammation in your jawbone
With the CaviTAU® you can have your root canals checked if they are causing jawbone inflammation. If you had an extraction or any kind of jawbone surgery the CaviTAU® can provide vital information about if your jawbone has healed properly.
Before having an implant placed the CaviTAU® can ensure your jawbone is of good quality and your implant will be a success.
What are the differences between the new CaviTAU® and the old Cavitat®?
- The CaviTAU® is more precise, easier to use and less prone to damage.
- The CaviTAU® is sturdier and the results are easy to reproduce.
- The CaviTAU® has stronger signals.
One of the main benefits is that the CaviTAU® can easily be calibrated, whereas the Cavitat cannot be calibrated.
Another advantage for the patient is that the CaviTAU® requires far less gel.
