With Carestream Dental's new CS8100 panoramic imaging, we are able to deliver advanced sophsicated technology to our patients. This extremely compact system makes positioning easier, image acquistion faster, and higher image quality. More accurate real-time diagnoses ever.
A panoramic image is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying may issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. Initially you will stand or sit in a chair with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned in the machine, it will rotate around your entire head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses, and bones. The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very informative to the dentist. It will allow us to see any potential problems and make sure that everything is functioning as it should be. The panoramic image is capable of viewing specific types of structural problems, infections or asymmetry among many others.
