Digital Impression Scanning with Carestream Kodak Cone Beam Systems

Posted

Are you looking for a better solution to conventional dental impressions? Are you considering re-purposing the current area you’re using for storing the impressions into more productive space? Are you reluctant to purchase a cone beam system for fear of spending more than $100,000 for a quality device? If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, a certified pre-owned Carestream Kodak CS 9300 3D or CS 8100 3D system may be exactly what you’re looking for.

How Digitizing Impressions with Carestream Kodak Cone Beam Systems Works

It’s easy to convert traditional impressions to digital files with Carestream Kodak Cone Beam systems and CS 3D imaging software. Simply follow the automated steps below to capture high-quality, precise digital models each and every time.

  1. First, take traditional impressions and a wax bite.
  2. Launch the CS 3D imaging software and select “CS Model”.
  3. First, place the traditional impression of the maxillary arch on the scanning platform.
  4. Acquire the image. A preview of the scan will appear in the CS 3D imaging software.
  5. Next, the CS 3D imaging software will prompt you to scan the mandibular impression.
  6. Place the traditional impression of the mandibular arch on the scanning platform.
  7. Acquire the image. As before, a preview of the scan will appear in the CS 3D imaging software.
  8. The CS 3D imaging software will then prompt you to scan the wax bite.
  9. Place the wax bite on the scanning platform and acquire the image.
  10. The CS 3D imaging software transforms the impressions into digital models within minutes.
  11. The models automatically mounted in proper occlusion and can be adjusted in the software as needed.
  12. The models are then stored in the CS 3D imaging software for easy and efficient archiving and retrieval.

Benefits of Carestream Kodak Cone Beam Systems for Digital Impressions

Now that you know how easy it is to use, here are some other exciting benefits of using Carestream Kodak CBCT for digitizing traditional impressions.

  • Fast and precise scans: The ability to easily position and program the impression scanning process means that you receive a faster and more accurate scan. Using an image resolution of 30 µm, for example, produces improved definition of margins and higher quality clinical results. With the Carestream Kodak CS 9300 3D, it takes just 45 seconds to obtain a full scan of both arches.
  • Imaging systems with multiple purposes: Both the CS 9300 3D and the CS 8100 3D cone beam systems operate as multipurpose units that offer CBCT, optional cephalometric, and panoramic extraoral imaging. You can also easily transition either of these systems from extraoral imaging to impression scanning.
  • No need to change workflow practices: The impression scanning and management functions will already be familiar to you if you have used any type of CBCT scanning with CAM or CAD applications in the past. Both the CS 9300 3D and the CS 8100 3D family of products come equipped with an easy to use interface that guides you through the entire process.
  • No exposure to radiation: With the Carestream Kodak CBCT equipment, you can reassure your patients and staff that you’re not exposing them to any radiation at all. That is because the CBCT scans only the conventional impressions, not the patients.
  • Open system for increased patient comfort and flexibility: When you desire greater flexibility, simply integrate your Carestream Kodak CBCT impression scanning with other CAD and CAM products.
  • Wide range of uses: With this system, you can scan impressions using all types of materials using A-silicone. This includes single-tooth indications such as inlays and onlays as well as crowns.
