Advanced Dental Technology in Damascus
Carestream CS 9300 & Other Technology
In order to best examine your mouth, teeth, and gums, it is essential to have up-to-date technology and tools. Here at Damascus Dental Group, we proudly use the latest technology in dental care to ensure that our diagnoses are precise and accurate. One of the latest developed instruments in the dental field is the Care Stream CS 9300, which we use at our dental office. The CS 9300 is a cone-beam CT scan machine—essentially an x-ray device that uses panoramic imaging and focused field cone beam capabilities. It enables us to capture high-quality imaging of your teeth, jaw, nerve tracts, and bone so we can properly diagnose you.
In addition to the CS 9300, we also use the following types of dental technology:
- A chartless filing system
- Digital x-rays
- Intraoral cameras
- DIAGNOdent (a handheld laser device used for locating cavities)
When we select the dental technology that will be used in our office, we consider what will be both effective and safe for our patients. We pride ourselves in our ability to stay on top of the latest technological trends in the dental field, which serves as a great benefit to our patients.
Unique Benefits of the CS 9300
Cone-beam CT imaging is extremely effective because it allows dentists to capture 3-D images of the jaw and mouth area rather than the 2-D images that are produced from conventional CT imaging. A cone-beam CT scan device uses a larger cone-shaped beam that more effectively captures the patient’s anatomy. At Damascus Dental Group, we use the CS 9300 because of its higher level of comfort for the patient, as well as its boosted effectiveness in diagnosis and dental treatment planning.
The following are a few of the advantages that the CS 9300 offers our patients:
- Reduces exam time
- Eliminates film processing
- Captures images in less than one second
- Requires significantly lower levels of radiation dosage
- Accommodates patients of various sizes
