The Sirona Orthophos CBCT Scanner
Advanced diagnosis for complex procedures & patient care
CrownWood Dental offers referring dentists a leading edge CBCT scanner, the Sirona Orthophos 3D SL26. This offers you a wealth of 3D information and high definition imaging to support your case planning without the need to invest in additional technology.
What is it for?
These X-ray images help towards the diagnosis, treatment planning and follow up of patients with conditions affecting the head, face, teeth and jaw. A CBCT scan is invaluable for the more complicated procedures such as Endodontics, Oral Surgery and Prosthodontics, including complex implant cases.
What does it do?
Whenever a 3D image is required we are able to take the scan in our X-ray room. The procedure is quick and easy for your patient.
Some important features:
- Sharp layer technology automatically adapts the panoramic curve to the patient‘s individual anatomical features, ensuring that the entire jaw is always in the sharp layer.
- DCS (Direct Conversion Sensor) technology converts X-rays directly into electrical signals, with no information loss due to light conversion.
- Several hundred individual images are produced with the 3D X-ray in the space of just a few seconds. Using this data, the software generates a 3D image of the jaw section. A "virtual tour" of the scan means the data can be assessed from every dimension.
- The scan is sent to you by secure email, the same day ready for you to use for accurate diagnosis, treatment planning and to discuss the treatment in detail with your patient at their next appointment. Alternatively, a disk is also given to your patient for you to use at your review appointment with them.
