Endodontics

Utilizing Prexion3D CBCT will change the way you view endodontics from the initial diagnosis to retreatments. The ability to look at a tooth from virtually any angle eliminates surprises. The high quality images show MB2 canal, split root systems, multiple root exits and makes treatment success more certain.

  • Reduce or eliminate endodontic retreatment rates by having more complete information
  • Determine exact location of potential 2nd Mesial-Buccal canals prior to surgery
  • Accurately determine risk/benefit of retreatment or tooth extraction
  • Clearly diagnose vertical root fractures, retained root tips, apical radiolucency
  • See the potential impact of an abscess on surrounding structures
  • Detect internal or external resorption

Prexion 3D’s clarity, resolution and unique 3D templates, blow me away!  For diagnostics, endo, perio, restorative and implants I don’t know how I was able to practice great dentistry without it.  The customer service is truly superb and knowledgeable.  Don’t walk, run and get this machine!  It will make you money and give your patients the best dentistry has to offer.

Quotes from Implant Specialists

I spent a lot of time looking into the purchase of my first 3-D imaging system for my periodontal and dental implant practice. I chose Prexion for the image quality and outstanding software to view the data. It is amazing how quality 3-D imaging will change your ability to offer the patient comprehensive periodontal and implant treatment plans with complete confidence. If you have the Prexion 3-D images available at the treatment planning appointment your patient is better informed and case acceptance increases.

“We looked at many options for our CT scanner and found Prexion to be our best choice. I cannot imagine not having the capability it gives us for specific planning for block grafts, sinus grafts and implant placement! In addition, when we show the images and our planning capability to patients, they are immediately impressed with our advanced technology and case acceptance is automatic”.

“I did quite a bit of research on CT systems before I made my decision to purchase the PreXion.   I have been 100% satisfied with my decision.   PreXion allows me to quickly and accurately diagnose and determine better  treatment options for my patients.  Prior to Prexion I used a high quality 64 slice medical grade CT for my implant diagnosis and placement, I did not see any significant decrease in image quality when I changed to Prexion.  Having the ability to illustrate and properly educate patients has genuinely helped us grow our practice even during a down economy.    Likewise, PreXion’s sales and customer support is outstanding”.

Quotes from Periodontists

“When we began looking at cone beam systems, medical CT scans were our gold standard. After several months of evaluating various systems, the PreXion 3D CBCT was the only one that provided us with the same high quality images as a medical CT, with much less radiation. That truly was the deciding factor in our purchase decision.”

Edward S. Katz, DDS

Periodontist, Providence, Rhode Island
