Excellent Extraoral Imaging System Dentistry
The KODAK 8100 3D System gives our practice the ability to take powerful 3D images while using less radiation. The unit captures high-quality pictures and allows our practice to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in the office, helping reduce multiple visits and rescheduling, saving our patients time and money.
Three-dimensional technology allows Dr. Franzen to better visualize patients' dentition, without having to send patients to a lab for radiology scans. Viewing an unprecedented level of anatomical detail helps Dr. Franzen diagnose more accurately and treat with confidence. The capabilities of 3D imaging offer a wide range of diagnostic possibilities such as implant placement, extractions, examination of oral pathologies, root fractures, and third molar evaluations. This breakthrough technology provides unprecedented x-ray views of the oral cavity.
Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of high-resolution cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), allowing 3D assessment of third molars, tooth extraction, surgical planning, oral pathologies, fractures, and implant placement. Because the 8100 system focuses only on the area in need of diagnosis, the amount of radiation exposure is significantly reduced, delivering 10-30 times less exposure than other dental radiography systems.
