UNDERSTANDING THE ADVANTAGES OF 3D DENTAL IMAGING

Posted by Gendex News on Mar 25, 2013 8:23:00 AM

With the advent of any new technology, it’s important for dental professionals to consider not only cost and risks, but also the benefits of switching. In the case of 3D dental imaging, the advantages are clear, granting practitioners and patients alike a better clinical experience.

A dental 3D scan allows clinicians to view dental anatomy from different angles. A 3D scan can help gain a better view of bone structures, such as adjacent root positions, in order to locate canals and root fractures, as well as provide the ability to more accurately measure anatomical structures. These scans also support a wide range of diagnosis and treatment planning, making them extremely flexible. Further, they increase the possibility of treatment success, granting practitioners greater predictability and confidence in preparing for extractions, performing root evaluations, and placing implants.

3D dental imaging also delivers the power of repeatability, providing fast and accurate imaging that’s consistent—and thus, reliable. Using a 3D dental scanner equips dental professionals with a comprehensive view, letting them see specific conditions in the region of interest to determine whether a treatment is necessary. Because details show up so clearly, patients can be more confident in a dentist’s decision. In addition, the use of dental imaging technology often creates a more comfortable and engaging dental visit for the patient.

 

The Gendex GXDP-700 Series features the pinnacle of 3D dental imaging technology, allowing dentists to plan for more predictable treatment outcomes by taking advantage of powerful 3D software analysis and simulation tools. Plus, dental practitioners can control the exposure and the size of scanned areas using the system’s flexible field-of-view (FOV) to meet individual patient and clinical needs. As a practice grows to offer additional imaging capabilities, the GXDP-700 imaging solution can be upgraded within your own timeline and budget. 

 


X-ray imaging, including dental 3D (CBCT), provides a fast, non-invasive way of answering a number of clinical questions. Dental CBCT images provide three-dimensional (3D) information, rather than the two-dimensional (2D) information provided by a conventional X-ray image. This may help with the diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of certain conditions. Dental CBCT should be performed only when necessary to provide clinical information that cannot be provided using other imaging modalities. Concerns about radiation exposure are greater for younger patients because they are more sensitive to radiation.

PREDICTABILITY IN IMPLANT PLANNING WITH CONE BEAM 3D IMAGING

Posted by Gendex News on Feb 28, 2013 7:09:00 AM

Over the last few years, Cone Beam 3D imaging has become more widely adopted in dental offices. The information delivered by this technology creates invaluable data for the treatment and implant planning process.

3D scans used in conjunction with 3D implant planning software represent an optimal method for presurgical assessment of dental implant sites. Specifically the use of 3D technology during any augmentation or implant procedure allows clinicians to examine cross-sectional views of the site of interest. 3D imaging provides an extensive amount of information for the clinician, such as bone structure, bone density, root positioning, fractures, and clear measurements of the anatomical structure. Both doctors and patients alike can visibly understand the precise diagnosis, method of entry, treatment and recovery.

 

Dr. Norberto Velázquez in Greenville, NC shares his experience with the Gendex GXDP-700 Pan/3D imaging system and talks about why 3D Imaging makes implant planning more predictable.

 

Implant Planning with 3D/CBCT

The case presented represents a typical instance where an implant is required in the area of the first or second premolar. A three-dimensional scan is used to accurately locate the exact position of important anatomic structures or landmarks. The 3D scan and software allow moving, slicing, and viewing the anatomy from any direction.

predictability1-2.png

A critical step is the ability to mark the position of the nerve (marked in red in the images below) — this becomes especially helpful when virtual implants are used. A first look might indicate that the implant on this image (1) could interfere with the inferior alveolar nerve and mental foramen. This is not the case.

This image (2) is a disto-facial view of the 3D scan showing appropriate clearance between the implant, inferior nerve, and the mental foramen — as indicated by the mint circle. In addition, the Invivo5 software provides a visual indication of such clearance by coloring green the implant model in the lower left of the screen.

predictability3-4.png
The arch section of the software shows axial, sagittal, and coronal slices. Multiple views (3) provide a more comprehensive understanding of the anatomical features of the patient. After surgery, a follow up with a post-operative image (4), either 2D or 3D, can be done based on case necessity.
 

Dr. Velázquez’s Conclusion

The GXDP-700 system offers several functionalities that benefit my patients. The advantage of the extra dimension to both implant patients for me, and orthodontic patients for my wife, is incalculable. This machine has become a basic part of the diagnostic process for implants — like my explorer and mirror. It allows me to see the location of important anatomical structures and landmarks so I can avoid additional or unnecessary invasive procedures.

With the scan, I can inform patients of my implant treatment plan, and show them how the surgery will proceed. They gain confidence in my knowledge of their dental anatomy even before surgery begins. Before 3D, a surprise could pop up during surgery. Then, the patient would be disappointed that he or she was not going to get an implant immediately, but needed an additional procedure first, such as grafting. My patients understand that I have implemented this technology for the sake of their dental health.

For a dentist, the opportunity for improved diagnostic capabilities is always a benefit to the patient. While they are not always directly aware of all the advantages, the information that I obtain from these pans and scans is beneficial for their care. I witness these benefits every day, in increased patient communication and more successful treatment outcomes.  

Norberto Velázquez, DDS - Greenville, NC

Dr. Velázquez graduated from dental school in 2002 and attended a general practice residence (GPR) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma from June of 2002 until June 2003. Shortly after finishing the GPR residence, Dr. Velázquez moved to Greenville, NC and worked in Kinston for the J.H. Rose Dental Clinic as the Dental Director for four years. Dr. Velázquez has advanced education in implantology and enjoys working on cosmetic procedures, oral surgery, crown and bridge (prosthetics), implants, and dentures. He just finished another intensive implant course.

Your clear path for growth begins with the GXDP-700™ Series. This dynamic system starts with a digital panoramic with sophisticated styling and an ergonomic design including an advanced touchscreen interface. The GXDP-700 is a modular system, upgradeable from 2D panoramic to Cephalometrics or 3D Cone Beam with flexible field-of-view, or both.

DIGITAL PANOREX X-RAY MACHINE: HOW TO TAKE GREAT PANORAMIC IMAGES

Posted by Gendex News on Jan 21, 2013 3:05:00 PM

Some people say that position is everything in life — and for capturing quality panoramic images, that is truly the case! Excellent image quality results from careful attention to positioning, and special features on the GXDP-300™ help clinicians to capture panoramics more easily and efficiently.

In just 5 minutes, the video below will show you how to take optimal panoramic x-ray images:

The process starts by setting up the acquisition within your imaging software. Then, ready the unit by positioning the chin rest and bite guide and fully opening the head supports. After pressing the reset button to position the rotating unit, select the projection and patient size on the touchscreen.

Now, for patient positioning. Before settling the patient into place, tell them to remove any glasses, false teeth, jewelry, hair clips, or pins, and then place the protective apron. Press the up and down buttons on the unit to adjust the height of the chin rest so it is slightly higher than the patient’s chin. Ask the patient to step into the unit and grab the handgrips. After the patient places their chin on the chin rest, ask them to position their upper and lower anterior teeth into the groove on the bite guide.

 

Laser technology is responsible for the next step in positioning. After asking the patient to close their eyes, press the laser button to initiate the laser alignment lights. For mid-saggital placement, verify that the patient’s head is not tilted or turned to one side. For standard panoramic horizontal placement, use the up and down buttons to bring the patient’s Frankfort plane parallel to the laser. For bitewing projection, horizontal placement, use the up and down buttons to bring the patient’s occlusal plane parallel to the laser. Laser lights can be raised or lowered before making adjustments to the Frankfort or occlusal planes. For standard panoramic placement, adjust the chin rest, posteriorly or anteriorly so the cuspids coincide with the laser. For bitewing projection placement, adjust the chin rest to the bitewing marker.

After positioning the laser, carefully push the unit’s head support towards the patient, and rotate the head-support knob clockwise to close the temple supports for a gentle, yet firm grip on the patient’s head. While the patient holds the handgrips firmly, support the patient’s head position by putting your hand on the back of their head, and ask the patient to step forward slightly. Check that the patient is still in the correct position. Ask the patient to press their lips together and to press their tongue against the roof of the mouth.

Positioning for a Panorex

Tip: Looking at a fixed point in the mirror will help the patient to remain still.

During exposure, the unit will rotate around the patient’s head until finished. Exposure should take about 12 seconds for an adult panoramic and 6 seconds for a bitewing. During exposure, move at least seven feet away from the unit, to a place where you are still able to see and hear the patient.

Finally, release the head support, and help the patient out of the unit.

With the GXDP-300, the EasyPosition™ system and instructive alignment guides makes positioning patients of all sizes a smooth and simple process. The touchscreen control panel makes panoramic x-ray capture as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Select the imaging projection
  2. Choose the patient size
  3. Take the scan

Proprietary FOX™ technology facilitates well-defined, high-quality images with consistent magnification and image uniformity. Panoramic images can provide accurate views of patient anatomy for better diagnostics and a more streamlined workflow and capture process. The GXDP-300 blends performance and simplicity — and puts you in a better position to achieve quality panoramic imaging to provide the best treatment planning for your patients.

3 STEPS TO MOVE FROM A GX-PAN TO A DIGITAL PANOREX MACHINE

Posted by Gendex News on Nov 7, 2012 4:04:00 PM

 

3 steps gx pan.pngThe Gendex GX-Pan has been one of the most popular Gendex panoramic x-ray machine for decades - and for good reason.

Its solid construction and reliable performance have made it an imaging fundation for thousands of dental practices. 

Many things have changed since the Gendex GX-Pan was designed. Direct digital technology has become the industry standard for dental panorex machines. These digital panoramic x-ray systems do not require cumbersome dark rooms, costly film x-rays, nor harmful chemicals, resulting in a more efficient and win-win solution for your practice, your patients, and your staff.

Several offices get stuck in the process of upgrading to digital radiography. Here are 3 initial steps you can take: 

  1. Evaluate your practice's clinical needs
  2. Learn about your options
  3. Ask your peers or industry experts

 

1. Evaluate Your Practice's Clinical Needs

The first step in this process is to evaluate your practice imaging needs. Modern digital panorex are capable of offering not only a standard panoramic x-ray view, but also to acquire optimal pediatric panoramic x-rays, extraoral bitewing views, cephalometric projections, and even Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans, also known as dental 3D scans. How do you choose among all these options?

It is important to focus on your practice needs. Specifically, you want to identify the procedures you are performing today and anticipate the treatments your practice will likely offer in the near future. Do you see your practice on a path to growth? Are you offering more and more specialized treatments like implant placements, endodontic treatments, and orthodontics? The answers to these questions can help you make a more informed decision on the dental imaging capabilities that your next digital panorex should be able to provide. 

 

2. Learn About Your Options

There are several digital panoramic options in the market, but which one is right for you and your practice?

Once you have a clear understanding of your existing and future clinical needs, the next step is to explore available machines to meet those needs. One caveat is understanding your position with respect to 3D imaging, or the potential to upgrade to 3D in the future. In fact, while your office might not be in a position to benefit from 3D imaging today, you may want to choose a digital panorex that can be easily and effectively upgraded to Cone Beam 3D at a later date.

If you have relied on a Gendex GX-Pan for years, and would like to count on Gendex for your next digital panorex, you'll be comforted by the fact that Gendex is able to offer a comprehensive platform of digital panoramic solutions. Starting with the Gendex GXDP-300 digital panoramic system, to the Gendex GXDP-700 Series - a modular platform able to meet your Panoramic, Cephalometric and Cone Beam 3D imaging needs. Here is a comparative snapshot of the Gendex extraoral product line:

Trying to anticipate your practice's future needs is a smart thing to do, but when you add extra imaging capabilities to your panoramic system, your initial investment also goes up. However, going with the cheapest panorex for sale or the panoramic x-ray on promotion at the moment might not be the right choice for your practice if it is not upgradeable to meet your growing needs. Therefore it is critical to understand the real cost of a digital panorex, and the price you can afford. Here are Simple Return On Investment (ROI) Calcutators you can use to better understand the economics of your investment.

 

3. Ask Your Peers or Industry Experts

If you are trying to determine the best options to upgrade your GX-Pan panorex, you are not the only one. Several offices have already upgraded to digital technology or are in the process of doing so. Consulting with peers will allow you to gather helpful insights and learn how other professionals have succesfully gone digital.

WHY CHOOSE THE GENDEX GXS-700 DIGITAL X-RAY SENSORS

Posted by Gendex News on Aug 8, 2012 9:35:00 AM

The latest census data* on dental technology adoption tells us that more than two- thirds of U.S. dental offices use digital x-ray systems. While there are still a number of offices in the process of moving from film to digital, many dentists embarked on their digital journey years ago. These practitioners have been able to appreciate the benefits of digital imaging and also have come to a better understanding of what digital sensor features are most critical to their practice success.

Now we could write pages on why to choose the Gendex GXS-700 digital x-ray sensors for your practice, but we think it would be more valuable for you to hear it direclty from GXS-700 owners. Dr. Parag Kachalia is a GXS-700 user since 2010, and he has kindly shared his story and point of view on the subject with the folks at Dental Products Report, the leading dental resource for dental products.     

The digital x-ray journey for Dr. Parag R. Kachalia and Dr. Charity L. Duncan at Innovative Dental Concepts in San Ramon, CA started in 2004. Since then, many things have changed. Today, new patients expect modern dental offices to provide digital x-ray systems — conventional film x-ray is a thing of the past. In other words, digital imaging "is an expectation now," says Dr. Kachalia.  

More recently, the practice was ready to upgrade its digital imaging infrastucture and move up to the new Gendex GXS-700 system. In a video interview with Dental Products Report, Dr. Kachalia talks about his discovery process, the factors that were important to the selection, and why the office chose the Gendex GXS-700 sensors:

 

 

Among the factors mentioned during the interview, Dr. Kachalia highlights the ability to fit all patients, efficiencies achieved in his office, and the value of digital imaging software to engage and educate patients.

Abitity to fit all patients

As a family dentist, Dr. Kachalia keeps all his patients in mind. To accommodate all sizes or shapes of patients’ mouths, format and comfort of digital sensors was a key element in the decision-making process. The GXS-700 sensor system, with an adult and pedo format, encompasses all patient sizes and all applications. To offer the best possible experience to his patients, the sensor housing design with smooth, rounded corners, no seams, and no sharp areas was another major factor in the decision-making process.

Efficiency with no compromises

Implementing digital imaging comes with key benefits — no worries about dark rooms, processors, films, and chemicals that need to be ordered. The GXS-700 takes efficiencies to a new high. The simple and direct USB connection of the GXS-700 makes the system truly plug and play — "just pop it into the USB port, and you are ready to go," says Dr. Kachalia. This makes digital imaging very easy for the entire staff to use.

Digital imaging as engagement and educational tool

One of the main benefits of a digital imaging system is patient education. The ability to enlarge images on the screen, apply treatment tools like colorization, and zone in on areas of interest allow Dr. Kachalia to engage patients on a completely new level.
