A New Imaging System Improves Accuracy for Dental Implants in Wilmington, NC at Cook Periodontics and Dental Implants

Dr. Phyllis and Deana Cook brings a new imaging system for improved dental implant placement in Wilmington, NC.

Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) December 13, 2013

Dr. Phyllis Cook and Dr. Deana Cook now offer the use of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging system for improved placement of d ental implants in Wilmington, NC.

This system is widely considered to be more revealing than traditional dental x-rays. With CBCT imaging, they can more accurately understand the anatomy of a patient’s dentition, including the soft tissue and nerves present in the face and jaw. This allows them to better plan for the size and exact placement of dental implants to replace missing teeth, while avoiding nerve systems and other potentially complicating structures.

CBCT imaging uses a digital machine that rotates around the patient’s head to capture hundreds of images very quickly. iCat CBCT uses a cone-shaped beam of radiation which is projected at the patient. Data is collected by scanning software that can be used to construct a 3-dimensional image of the patient’s head, jaw and neck. Cone-beam imaging is widely considered to be very useful in the field of implant dentistry. The iCat allows dental professionals to fully visualize the necessary angle, placement site and size of dental implants before surgery. By utilizing the iCat, dental professionals are able to use their preferred software system for treatment planning from start to finish.

Dr. Phyllis Cook and Dr. Deana Cook prefer to use iCat CBCT over traditional dental x-rays for a number of reasons. Traditional x-rays only take one image at a time. They expose the patient to more radiation than iCat CBCT, and are potentially harmful to the environment because of the chemicals used to produce the image. They also fail to show soft tissue and nerve structures as clearly as CBCT imaging.

The responsible use of cone-beam imaging has been sanctioned by the American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs in cases where the dental clinician believes that use of CBCT will aid better clinical results in a patient. Dr. Phyllis Cook and Dr. Deana Cook use CBCT both to diagnose and treat periodontal disease and also for more accurate placement of dental implants.

“Deleuze and Computers” – Alexander R. Galloway

“Deleuze and Computers” – a lecture by Alexander R. Galloway at the WEB Du Bois Library at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on December 2nd, 2011. Abstract for the talk: Could it be? Could it be that Deleuze’s most lasting legacy will lie in his “Postscript on Control Societies,” a mere 2300 word essay from 1990? Such a strange little text, it bears not the same Deleuzean voice so familiar from his other writings. Cynics will grumble it falls short of the great books of ’68-’69 or the radical collaborations with Félix Guattari during the 1970s. In the “Postscript” he indicts capitalism by name. He raises his wrath against corporations and television shows. Yet his frame includes the culture at large, not just the mode of production. He talks about snakes and surfers and other features of the dawning millennium. He references such figures as Roberto Rossellini, Paul Virilio, Franz Kafka, and most importantly Michel Foucault. He tells us exactly what is wrong with the business sector, as well as with the prisons, schools, and hospitals. It reads almost like a manifesto, the “Manifesto on Control Societies.” In this talk we will investigate the last few years of Deleuze’s life, a period in which he elaborates, however faintly, an image of what it means to live in the information age.
