State of the Art Imaging
The CS 9300 system gives our practice state-of-the-art technology to help our doctors at DaVinci Dental diagnose potential issues more accurately with state of the art imaging and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provided 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, helping to reduce multiple visits.
Our new 3D scanner allows us 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 DaVinci Dental, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail aids in treatment planning and help us better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. DaVinci Dental can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
Our doctors at DaVinci Dental carefully consider which radiographs are taken and when. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs. Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. DaVinci Dental utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies in the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies. They also help us provide a visual when we sit down with you and discuss your treatment.
One of the most exciting new areas of dentistry involves the use of DIGITAL X-RAYS. These new x-rays utilize a high-speed computer and allow the x-rays to be taken with 80 to 90 percent less radiation. This dosage is so low that it barely leaves a reading on x-ray sensing equipment. Not only is the radiation dosage low, but also the amount of information that can be gleaned from these x-rays is substantially greater. The contrast can be adjusted to improve diagnosis and the x-ray can be colorized. This often shows things not otherwise detectable. This may prevent diseases from progressing much beyond the early stages because of early detection. Precise measurements can be made on the x-rays that are accurate to within 0.2 millimeters (the size of two or three hairs). The x-rays can also be magnified giving detail and accuracy for the restoration of dental implants that exceeds anything we have had available before. The greatest advantage is that the cost to the patient for these x-rays is the same as for x-rays on film that your dentist may now be using. Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing. Da Vinci Dental uses intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you! Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
