OraMetrix Inc, Richardson, Tex, has certified Carestream Dental’s CS 3500 intraoral scanner for use with its suresmile® technology.
The CS 3500 acquires true color, 2D, and 3D images that can be used with CS model software to create digital models. Requiring no external heater, powder, or trolley system, the CS 3500 features high-angulation scanning of up to 45 degrees and to a depth from -2 to +13 mm. It also features autoclavable tips available in two sizes—one for children and one for adults.
suresmile is an orthodontic system that combines 3D diagnostic imaging with computerized treatment planning and robotic archwire customization. The system enables orthodontists to proactively plan tooth movement on digital models and customize prescriptive archwires for precise and efficient treatment. The integration of CS 3500 scans with the suresmile software allows for more improved treatment planning as well as enhanced control over treatment.
Carestream Dental’s CS 9300C Select and CS 9300C systems previously received certification for use with suresmile technology in 2013 and 2011, respectively.
“The suresmile certification enhances the CS 3500’s versatility,” said Matt Hendrickson, US orthodontic director at Atlanta-based Carestream Dental. “The integration with suresmile enables practitioners to capture high-resolution images digitally rather than using traditional impressions, eliminating the need for using impression material, pouring molds, or waiting for stone models to set.”
