suresmile is an innovative system for orthodontists that combines 3D diagnostic imaging with computerized treatment plan modeling and robotic archwire customization. The suresmile system enables doctors to pro-actively plan tooth movement on digital models and customize prescriptive archwires for precise and efficient treatment. The integration of CS 9300C Select 3D scans with the suresmile software means orthodontists will have improved treatment planning as well as unprecedented 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 3D 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."
"The suresmile certification enhances the CS 9300C Select's versatility," said Edward Shellard, D.M.D., chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental. "The integration with suresmile enables practitioners to explain cases visually to their patients using a 3D 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 any practice's diagnostic needs and budget. The CS 9300C Select offers 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), 2D 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.

The suresmile system is a digital technology that equips orthodontists with a powerful diagnostic, treatment and monitoring tool to deliver the most precise, customized orthodontic care available. suresmile has been shown to reduce treatment time by an average 30%, based on a February 2011 comparison of more than 40,000 patients. Since 2004, suresmile has been used on 125,000 patients by over 400 orthodontists in the United States, Europe, Australia, Japan and Canada. For more information, go to www.suresmile.com.
