  • Grand Rapids-Muskegon-Holland, MI (1888PressRelease) October 19, 2010 - Northwood Dental, led by Dr. Brian Klym, is now equipped with the innovative Kodak 9000 3D imaging system, illustrating Northwood Dental's continuing commitment to quality dental care. Dr. Klym is the first general dentist in the area to acquire this state-of-the-art equipment, which benefits his patients for many reasons:

    Improved Diagnostics: Dr. Klym can now determine a diagnosis more accurately and more quickly, helping to minimize repeat visits, saving patients time and money. "Before I even start, I can see the whole three-dimensional anatomy of the root canal where before I could not." Dr. Klym said.

    Comfort: Tailored specifically for a patient to sit facing outward, the Kodak 9000 allows patients to see their Northwood caregiver as the scans are performed-making it a more comfortable experience. "You stand up in the machine, and it's very open room, you don't feel confined, no sense of claustrophobia. The average scan is only 24 seconds."

    Technology: The Kodak 9000 shows high-resolution images, allowing Dr. Klym to perform more informed and precise procedures. "I get a three-dimensional 'model' of the bone, and that allows me to see things that I can't see two dimensionally," said Dr. Klym. "I can take precise measurements."

    Safety: The Kodak 9000 uses significantly less radiation than many other imaging systems. As Dr. Klym explains, "[Other] medical scanners acquire images that use radiation doses of 40-60 times that of the cone beam that we're using. Ours is even less than the typical cone beam, so it's more like other scanners are 80 times more."

    The Kodak 9000 imaging system allows Dr. Klym to capture and view three-dimensional images of a patient's mouth, allowing for an unprecedented level of anatomical detail-and a comprehensive assessment of a patient's oral health.

    The addition of the Kodak 9000 imaging system is the latest in a series of events illustrating the continued development of Northwood Dental. Dr. Klym and his team of professionals have provided a full range of dental care to the Traverse City area for years, including but not limited to:
