KODAK 9000 3D Extraoral Imaging SystemKodak 3D scanner

In an ongoing effort to provide you with the best care possible, we have recently added the KODAK 9000 3D Extraoral Imaging System to our practice, revolutionizing patient treatment. The KODAK 9000 3D System is an innovative two-in-one solution providing access to powerful, focused field 3D images. The capabilities of 3D imaging offer a wide range of diagnostic possibilities such as endodontics, implantology, and other surgical and dental applications.

Most importantly, the KODAK 9000 3D System was designed to acquire 3D images on a specific dental region of interest, so technicians are able to target the exact area for the 3D exposure. This significantly reduces the amount of radiation, delivering 10-30 times less exposure than other dental radiography systems. 

Benefits include:

  • High-resolution images – your doctor can view your teeth more clearly
  • Less radiation – more safety
  • Improved patient care – your doctor can perform a wider range of diagnoses, helping reduce multiple visits, saving you time and money
  • Comfortable positioning – when images are taken, you sit facing your dental professional, making the shot more comfortable for you

Precision Dentistry

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Drs. Laniauskas and Drockton and our staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.Dental-Mirror

Our practice uses high power magnification to enhance the precision of patient care.

Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using magnification that is similar to the one an ophthalmologist uses enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that same level of care with the naked eye.

In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, a direct beam of light is used, minimizing glare for you.

Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While necessary for many procedures, these “whiney sounding” air-powered hand pieces can be noise masked by our noise-cancelling headphones and digital music player. This may bring more comfort to you, and always feel free to bring your own music.

Digital Imaging

Drs. Laniauskas and Drockton chose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow.  Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Drs. Laniauskas and Drockton utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office.

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal.  Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better by viewing the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light.

Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Intraoral Photography

Drs. Laniauskas and Drockton utilize Digital Camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. This allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!

These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
