Owl Orthodontics Utilizes 3D Cone Beam Imaging

CS 9300 SelectAt Owl Orthodontics, we strive to provide our patients with exceptional orthodontic treatment. For each individual, we carefully evaluate the patient’s orthodontic condition and then determine the best course of action. In some cases, we may need to take a detailed look at the jaw and facial structure to make these treatment decisions. Fortunately, we have the Carestream CS 9300 Select which provides Cone Beam 3D imaging right in our Williamsville office. It enhances diagnosis and treatment planning by providing more accurate and detailed imaging.

Cone Beam imaging provides faster and more convenient results – a typical scan takes only 20 seconds. The technology also enables us the flexibility to focus on one particular area rather than doing a full scan.

Patients benefit from less radiation as well as the comfortable, open environment. We can also share the visual diagnosis with patients – which keeps them actively involved and confident with the treatment plan. The speed of the scan and the immediate results allow us to better communicate the aspects of a case.

According to research by John Ludlow, DDS, of the University of North Carolina’s School of Dentistry, “Studies have confirmed that the CS 9300 family of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems can provide 3D exams at up to 85 percent lower dose than traditional 2D panoramic imaging.”

Along with reduced radiation, the CS 9300 offers exceptional 3D imaging technology and leading 2D digital panoramic imaging with variable focal trough technology. One-shot cephalometric imaging is available as an optional feature. The system produces an image resolution of up to 90 µm with 1:1 accuracy, delivering superior diagnostic detail. Additionally, the CS 9300 features medium to large field 3D imaging with seven selectable fields of view, ranging from 5 cm x 5 cm to 17 cm x 13.5 cm. These fields of view support a wide variety of clinical applications, such as implantology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthognathics and orthodontics.
