Carestream 9300 CT Technology

Safe & Accurate CT Dental Scans in Okemos

While a lot goes into making a dental office a truly great place for patients, one of the most important things a dentist can do for those in her care is to invest in the best technology. In implant dentistry, the difference between the newest piece of The Carestream 9300 CT technology and an older model can be the difference between a correct diagnosis and an incorrect one. As part of her commitment to her patients, Dr. Tenaglia has consistently invested in the latest medical equipment. That commitment continues with Dr. Tenaglia’s recent acquisition of a Carestream 9300c Cone Beam CT Scan machine.

This new and exciting technology will enable Dr. Tenaglia to take crystal clear pictures of your jaw and mouth while exposing you to substantially less radiation than other CT scanners.

The Carestream, TMJ & Dental Implants

The Carestream 9300c produces clear, crisp pictures of your jaw and mouth, and it does so with greater speed than many other CT scanners. This isn’t just a technical improvement; these images are crucial for diagnoses and the creation of a treatment plan for your condition.

They are especially useful for three types of patients:

  • Patients suffering from TMJ/TMD
  • Patients who need dental implants
  • General orthodontic cases

By providing Dr. Tenaglia with a clearer picture of your jaw and bite, the Carestream 9300c enables her to see the full extent of the problems with your temporomandibular joint. With this information, Dr. Tenaglia can devise a treatment plan to bring your jaw into alignment and help fix your bite.

When placing dental implants, it’s vital to have a clear view of the area where the implant is to be placed. The Carestream 9300c gives Dr. Tenaglia a clear view of the underlying jaw structure and the surrounding tissue. This is especially helpful for guided tissue surgery when placing implants and identifying and correcting existing implant problems.

Less Radiation Means a Safer Scan

A CT scan is essentially a series of x-ray views taken from a number of angles. Dr. Tenaglia always makes sure to keep that amount of radiation as small as possible. With the Carestream 9300c CT scanner, Dr. Tenaglia can dramatically reduce the amount of radiation her patients are exposed to when they undergo a CT scan.

Radiation doses are expressed using a unit of measurement known as the “millisievert,” or mSv. Most multi-detector CT scans require a radiation dose of between 0.8 and 2.0 MSV to produce a clear image. With the Carestream 9300c, however, Dr. Tenaglia can pull up a good image with a dose that ranges from .04 to .19 MSV, depending on what is being scanned. This is better for you.

If you’re looking for a skilled Okemos dentist for placement and restoration of dental implants, orthodontic treatment, or help with your TMJ/TMD pain, please contact Dr. Christine Tenaglia today for more information.
