Designation Recognizes Imaging System’s High Degree of Precision



ATLANTA – The CS 9300C has recently joined a select group of advanced 3D imaging systems certified by OraMetrix Inc. for use with its SureSmile® technology.  This coveted distinction recognizes the CS 9300C’s exceptionally high degree of precision just weeks after the imaging system’s introduction to the United States.

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 3D scans with the SureSmile software means orthodontists will have improved treatment planning as well as unprecedented control of treatment. 

“The CS 9300C delivers high quality, precise anatomical data that is required for creation of SureSmile models,” said Phil Getto, Chief Technology Officer, OraMetrix.  “Because we use the models created from the 3D data to create customized therapeutic appliances, it is critical to providing the doctor with models that are extremely accurate representations of the tooth anatomy and positions.”

“The integration with SureSmile delivers an industry-leading application for orthodontists and gives them a powerful option for orthodontic planning,” said Edward Shellard, D.M.D., chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental.  “SureSmile certification enhances the CS 9300C’s versatility.”

The CS 9300C is an extraoral imaging system designed and manufactured by Carestream Dental.  It allows doctors to capture 3D images in up to seven different fields of view.  This ability to collimate between different 3D image sizes enables oral health professionals from all disciplines to focus on specific areas of dentofacial anatomy, depending on the clinical diagnostic requirements.  Additionally, the CS 9300C captures 2D digital panoramic and cephalometric images, fundamental diagnostic tools for orthodontists.
