ATLANTA, Georgia--The CS 9300C Select has joined a group of advanced 3-D imaging systems certified by OraMetrix for use with its suresmile technology.

The distinction recognizes the CS 9300C Select’s high degree of precision.

Suresmile is a system for orthodontists that combines 3-D diagnostic imaging with computerized treatment plan modeling and robotic archwire customization. The suresmile system enables doctors to proactively plan tooth movement on digital models and customize prescriptive archwires for precise and efficient treatment.

The integration of CS 9300C Select 3-D scans with the suresmile software means orthodontists will have improved treatment planning as well as control over treatment.

“The CS 9300C Select delivers high-quality data that suresmile needs to precisely measure bracket positions on the teeth in order to create anatomically accurate computerized 3-D models of patients’ mouths,” said Phil Getto, chief technology officer for OraMetrix.

“Suresmile creates therapeutic appliances that are customized according to the course of treatment prescribed by the orthodontist; therefore, it is crucial that models are accurate so practitioners can see how the teeth fit together from every angle and determine the most efficient treatment plan.”

Added Edward Shellard, DMD, chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental: “The suresmile certification enhances the CS 9300C Select’s versatility. The integration with suresmile enables practitioners to explain cases visually to their patients using a 3-D model that shows real-life dimensions. This ultimately leads to better patient understanding and increased case acceptance.”

The CS 9300C Select is a multi-purpose extraoral imaging system that is tailored to meet a practice’s diagnostic needs and budget. The CS 9300C Select offers 3-D cone beam computed tomography, 2-D digital panoramic imaging, and a cephalometric modality. With four selectable fields of view ranging from 5 cm x 5 cm to 10 cm x 10 cm, the CS 9300C Select gives practitioners the ability to limit radiation exposure by collimating the field of view to a precise region of interest.
