In order to provide nothing but the best to our patients, our office uses state-of-the-art technologies in all our procedures. These new technologies allow us to treat dental cases with extreme precision, detect dental concerns at early stages, and provide stunning and customized restorations. When you visit our office you can be confident that you are receiving the finest and most advanced dental care.
The ORTHOPHOS XG 3D system by Sirona combines the ability to provide digital 2D panorex x-rays with the 3D capabilities of cone beam technology. The 2D panorex images expose patients to the same radiation dose as a single small bite wing x-ray. This is one of the lowest radiation panorex models on the market! We can now do 3D scans of the jaw or of just several teeth to provide improved diagnostics and surgical planning. We can integrate the 3D x-ray model with our CEREC system for implant planning and the creation of custom surgical guides, which allow for precise implant placement. Utilizing both systems together increases safety and the likelihood of a great result!
2D images with unprecendented clarity and contrast
The ASTRA software algorithm ensures a marked improvement in the image quality of 2D panoramic and cephalometric images for all ORTHOPHOS XG units. ASTRA (Anatomically STructured Reconstruction Algorithm) generates a well-defined image with higher contrasts and less noise without the appearance of problematic edge artifacts. ASTRA’s new image quality provides the ideal basis for a reliable diagnosis.
Diagnose with greater certainty with ASTRA!
ASTRA literally means “Anatomically STructured Rconstruction Algorithm.”
What that means to you is images with high contrast, low noise, sharply defined edges and improved visualization of details without filter artifacts. ASTRA is an innovative image reconstruction algorithm that generates panoramic and ceph images with impressive clarity. ASTRA reduces black edges around metal fillings and optimizes the contrast to help avoid false positive misdiagnoses (such as caries). What you get are the highest quality digital images on the market today—without having to sort through multiple layers of images.
ASTRA benefits at a glance:
- Highest 2D image quality at the touch of a button
- Faster, better diagnosis thanks to clearer images
- Reduce false positive diagnoses of caries on metal margins
- Persuasive image impression, even for patients
- Great attention to detail in the field of orthodontic imaging preferences
