Cone-Beam Imaging Technology
The Carestream CS 9300 system gives our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office. We are able to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern. The CS 9300 system brings the latest 3D technology to our practice providing unmatched visualization of anatomical details in treatment planning and helps us better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. We can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your dentist.
With 3D Imaging we are able to fabricate surgical guides to help facilitate your surgery. We are able to obtain complete information about the quality and quantity of the bone which makes it possible for us to determine the ideal location for your dental implants. This will increase the probability for a successful operation. Knowledge of the exact location of important anatomy, such as the mandibular nerve and the maxillary sinus cavities, provide confidence that implant placement will proceed smoothly and safely. Surgical guides help to ensure that all of your implants are properly placed using all of this valuable information. Scientific studies show that the use of surgical guides along with a 3D implant plan results in increased esthetic outcomes. We will be able to produce results that look quite natural. We achieve these superior results by ensuring that the process of restoration is taken into account while planning the implant process.
The power and freedom of digital impressions
Optical imaging enables the doctor to take a 3D digital scan of the patient’s teeth and bite, visualize the images and make adjustments in real time, and transmit the file wirelessly for processing all without taking those difficult impressions which taste bad and cause you to gag.
