CS 2200 System
The CS 2200 Intraoral X-Ray System maximizes your diagnostic abilities and improves your workflow. Featuring an intuitive and user-friendly design, the unit’s very high-frequency (DC) x-ray generator ensures superior image quality and reproducibility, with improved safety conditions. What’s more, the unit’s new timer is a model of simplicity - further ensuring quick, safe and simple image acquisition.
The CS 2200 System has an adjustable tube voltage (60 or 70 kV), so you can customize contrast or gray shading levels based on exam requirements—providing the control you need to support your diagnoses.
Compatible with both film and digital imaging applications, the CS 2200 System works the way you do. Available in five available mounting options, two types of timers, and three arm lengths, the system can be easily adapted to match the configurations of your practice.
Maximum Image Quality
Our very high-frequency generator ensures superior image quality. Equipped with a focal spot of 0.7 mm, the CS 2200 System produces sharp, focused images each and every time. And the unit’s short exposure times make it an ideal product to use with our full range of dental digital radiography systems.
Reduced Radiation Dose
The CS 2200 System generates as much as 30% less radiation than traditional x-ray generators - thereby ensuring the safety of your patients and staff. In addition, the system’s electronic timer determines the optimal dose for patients based on exam settings, so you can work confidently with no worries of overexposure. And, after each exposure, the dose level is displayed for quick and simple dose monitoring.
Usability at Its Best
Compact and easy-to-use, the CS 2200 System’s handheld timer allows users to quickly select the right exposure settings. Pre-programmed to automatically calculate settings, the timer intuitively determines the appropriate exposure time based on anatomical region, patient bodyweight and detector type. Plus, the timer’s clear and easy-to-understand icons allow you to make your selections in less time than ever and help reduce the risk of mistakes.
A Little Ray Goes a Long Way
Despite concerns, traditional dental X-rays are a safe and important part of a thorough dental evaluation. By viewing the inside of your teeth and accompanying oral structures, we can more effectively care for your smile. Concerns over radiation exposure associated with dental X-rays have no solid basis. In fact, the high-speed film we use minimizes ionizing radiation that is passed along to the patient. The amount of radiation a patient is exposed to is less than that the exposure the natural atmosphere exposes a person to over about eight weeks. Radiograph technicians step out of the room while X-rays are being taken because they see many patients and take many X-rays. Compounded, the exposure could compromise their health over the course of their dental career.
Why X-Rays are Important
Dental radiographs, or X-rays, provide us with valuable information because with them, we can see what's going on beneath, between, and under your teeth and gums. We can also detect problems in existing dental work, as well as receding bone and abscesses. For instance, cavities and gum disease show up as dark places on white teeth and bone images. Not only do X-rays help us diagnose dental problems and develop customized treatment plans, but they document your dental health status, establishing a baseline from which to monitor changes over time.
If you have questions or concerns about X-rays or other dental procedures, please call us or share your concerns with us at your appointment. As your preferred dental care provider, we want you to be informed and confident in the care you receive in our office
