One in four adults who have felt anxious or scared when it comes to going to the dentist say that the periodontics equipment used is the reason why. Fortunately, Dr. Malek uses the latest digital dental imaging technology, Carestream 8200 3D, which provides 3D X-rays—that reduces much of the fear and discomfort most people associate with dentistry.

At Malek Periodontics, we are always looking for ways to improve our dental practice and provide even better care for our patients. That’s why we have invested in the Carestream 8200 3D imaging system from Carestream Dental. It features breakthrough innovations that enable us to scan our patients quickly, accurately and comfortably. The CS 8200 3D enables us to obtain the 2D and 3D images we need without requiring you to visit an outside imaging center.


State of the art periodontal technology

Advanced Dental Technology

This imaging system helps us properly position patients so that every scan captures exactly what we need, which can eliminate the need to rescan. If a follow-up scan becomes necessary in the future, the system remembers the positioning parameters from the first time, resulting in a shorter overall appointment. 

The system captures images very quickly, allowing our patients to experience a fast, smooth scanning process. In addition, the system’s open design with face-to-face positioning reduces the feeling of confinement. Because they are more comfortable during the scanning process, patients are less likely to move and cause blurring, which can create the need to rescan.


Superior Patient Care

We want to emphasize that we follow every precaution to minimize patient exposure to radiation whenever we obtain images for diagnosis and treatment. The CS 8200 3D addresses this issue and strictly adheres to the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle. The system’s high-power generator allows us to acquire high-quality images at a lower dose to the patient than other imaging systems. The system also allows us to target the exact area for exposure so that other tissues around the mouth will not be unnecessarily irradiated—which is another way the system limits the patient’s radiation exposure.

Highly Detailed Images

The CS 8200 3D features high image resolutions, which provides us with an unprecedented level of anatomical insight and enables us to diagnose more confidently. The sharp, highly detailed and contrasted images provide patients with a unique view of their dental structures and helps them see exactly what Dr. Malek sees. Patients can then feel more comfortable with their treatment decisions. All these features and functions result in better information, safer scans and more informed diagnoses. We feel that this new imaging system helps us significantly enhance what matters to us most: patient care.
