Xelis Dental Viewer (Same price as i-CAT Vision)

Allows you to plan your patient’s treatment easily, with a full implant library and free virtual implant placement capabilities. Our clinical team will prepare a study for you that includes highlighting the inferior dental canal and image rotation according to the area of interest.


The UL4 region has mild loss in vertical ridge height. The buccal cortical plate is thin or absent. There is Misch 4 bone density (Image 2).

The remaining teeth have mild to moderate generalized alveolar bone loss due to periodontal disease.

The nasopalatine canal has a concave surface and the width is at the upper limit of normal (6mm). This may indicate the development of a nasopalatine cyst. Taking a periapical radiograph in 12 months is recommended to check for any enlargement (Image 3).
