Extraoral imaging is a crucial first step for initial orthodontic diagnoses, clinical records, and treatment plans. Renew Digital has a wide range of affordable options in many different footprints and sizes to meet the needs of any orthodontic practice – big or small. Our brand-neutral sales team will help you find the perfect fit for your practice, regardless of manufacturer. And the best part is that you’ll save 30-50% off the cost of buying new equipment!
2D panoramic images are a critical component to orthodontic records. Before developing a treatment plan, orthodontists can use these images to assess:
- Health levels of the upper and lower jaw bone
- Root positioning of all teeth
- Permanent tooth impactions
- Jaw disorders
Renew Digital carries a wide range of dental panoramic X-ray options, ranging from basic standard panorex units to more advanced dental X-ray machines with features such as TMJ and sinus exams as well as extraoral bitewings. Pediatric-friendly settings help you to minimize radiation and exposure for your smallest patients.
Cephalometric images are another critical component for accurate orthodontic diagnoses and treatment. All pan-ceph X-ray models from Renew Digital include standard lateral and AP/PA ceph imaging. Other systems feature more advanced cephalometrics such as Towne and Waters views to meet just about any diagnostic need or technique.
Instead of scanning the patient twice to ensure a comprehensive image, some units feature “One Shot” ceph technology. This allows you to capture full, high-quality images with a single pulse of radiation, minimizing exposure time, streamlining capture, and reducing artifacts.
Trace and analyze your ceph images using leading ceph analysis tools, including full measurements and superimpositions. You’ll get better treatment predictions and patient outcomes as well as eliminate the tedious task of manual cephalometric tracing.
CONE BEAM IMAGING
Orthodontists are rapidly adopting dental cone beam technology because of the many advantages it affords both their practices and their patients. First, consider the efficiency gains of capturing all orthodontic records -- from panoramic to cephalometric images and everything in between -- in a single scan. Secondly, CBCT provides unprecedented 3-dimensional visualizations of the maxillofacial anatomy, airway space and soft tissue boundaries such as the facial outline to diagnose and plan cases more effectively for the most positive treatment outcomes.
Orthodontic practices routinely utilize cone beam scans to:
- Capture hard tissue examinations and records
- Determine types of dentition present, including dental anomalies
- Visualize arch size, shape and symmetry
- View anteroposterior and traverse maxilla mandibular relationships
- Assess the number, size and shape of teeth.
If your orthodontic practice isn’t quite ready for cone beam, but you are thinking of adding it in the future, consider a cone beam upgradeable panoramic or pan-ceph X-ray unit.
Intraoral scanners are being rapidly adopted by orthodontic practices looking to streamline patient workflow and improve comfort from messy traditional impressions.
In orthodontics, intraoral scanners deliver high accuracy and precision, and are very useful for diagnosis and treatment planning. Digital impressions provide high-quality true-color 3D images to provide a full visualization for easier chairside review with patients. Many orthodontists opt for the latest intraoral scanner technology, designed to maximize patient comfort with small-tip wands and high-speed capabilities to complete full-mouth scans in a manner of minutes.
Choosing digital scanning over traditional impressions also streamlines data transfer, creating exportable STL files that can be used to start the realization of customized orthodontic devices. Plus, your digital patient records will replace the need to store traditional plaster models and allow you to use that practice space more productively.
If you’re looking to advance your orthodontic practice with intraoral scanner technology, Renew Digital offers a wide range of certified pre-owned scanners from leading manufacturers at up to 50% less than new list prices.
