Greater Montreal Maxillo-Facial 3D
The Greater Montreal Maxillo-Facial 3D division of the Centre Dentaire de Haute Technologie du Québec opened in 2006. This division takes 3D x-rays of jaws for general dentists, orthodontists and specialists in Quebec requiring such diagnostics.
Planmeca ProMax 3D
The Greater Montreal Maxillo-Facial 3D uses a Planmeca ProMax 3D which captures 2D, 3D and CBCT digital images for implantology, endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. This device provides high quality images while following the ALARA principle for minimal x-ray exposure (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).
Following the acquisition of the SimPlant software, our division has become the first in Eastern Canada to use Simplant Master for processing data from scans.
Analysis of scans
Our Oral and maxillofacial radiology consultant, Dr. Manon Paquette, studied at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She then went on to act as Assistant Professor and Chief of Clinical Services, Diagnostic Imaging in the Faculty of Dental Medicine at Université de Montréal for almost 10 years.
