Dr. Raffi Leblebijian is committed to offering the latest in technology and treatment options. He recently augmented his office technology with a KODAK 8100 3D imaging system in our dental office in Bourbonnais, IL, the invention of which has revolutionized patient diagnosis and treatment. As a patient, this new advancement in the way doctors take x-rays will benefit you through improved accuracy and efficiency in your dental care – saving you time and money in the long run.
Here are a few important ways the KODAK 8100 3D imaging system can benefit you:
The quality of the images captured by the KODAK 8100 allows Dr. Raffi to diagnose pathology and prescribe treatment options with unprecedented certainty. By examining the three-dimensional image of your mouth produced by the CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) scan in Bourbonnais, IL, Dr. Raffi can see exactly where to place dental implants, how to extract wisdom teeth, and the degree of bone loss surrounding a missing tooth. The KODAK 8100 focuses only on the area in need of treatment, so the level of radiation exposure is 10-30 times less than other dental radiography systems. For patients, improved accuracy in diagnosis means fewer office visits and less costly means of finding the best possible treatment.
