New Digital Xray System Includes 3D Images!
In January 2009, we upgraded our digital x-ray system with the addition of the Kodak 9000 3D System and the Kodak RVG 6100 System.
The Kodak 9000 3D gives us the ability to take high-resolution panoramic x-rays for all of our dental patients. These non-invasive x-rays deliver clear, detailed images to enhance the doctor's diagnostic abilities. This particular x-ray is important because it shows the carotid artery. A simple panoramic dental x-ray can allow early diagnosis of a narrowed or blocked carotid artery.
The 3D capabilities of the Kodak 9000 3D are truly amazing. This technology is just beginning to be used in the dental field. We are proud to be one of the first offices to utilize this technology for placement of dental implants, endodontic procedures, and oral surgeries.
The Kodak RVG 6100 System provides the highest image resolution in the industry. The sensors are designed for easy positioning and a comfortable fit. This system is used for annual bitewings and other intraoral images.
All of our dental imaging systems deliver clear, detailed images at the optimal radiation dosage. It's just another way that we provide the optimum in dental care for our patients.
