The KaVo OP 3D Pro system is a member of the KaVoKerr Group family of extraoral imaging products, along with i-CAT, Instrumentarium, Gendex, Soredex, and more. The KaVo OP 3D was launched by KaVo in 2017, following a long history of innovation in dental imaging, and is one of the most comprehensive solutions for capturing images of the maxillofacial region. A 3-in-1 extraoral imaging platform including dental panoramic X-rays and optional cephalometric and dental cone beam exams, this system is highly adaptable with numerous features that make it ideal for a wide range of dental applications.
Below we’ll take a quick look at some of the most unique and impressive features of the KaVo OP 3D Pro system to help determine if it’s a good fit for your practice.
Versatility and Upgradeability
The KaVo OP 3D Pro system, which offers basic 2D panoramic and bitewing programs, can be upgraded to provide cephalometric or dental cone beam modality at any time, simply by contacting and working through the manufacturer. This enables the system to grow with the needs of a practice as it expands its services.
Upgradeability makes the system ideal for dental practices that are planning on expanding but are currently working within the restraints of a tighter budget. If your practice is ready to capture cephalometric or dental cone beam scans now, however, the system can be purchased already enabled with ceph or CBCT functionality, making it a truly versatile system.
Large Touch Screen and Superior User Interface
Tablets are increasingly being used recreationally and professionally, even in retail establishments and in dental offices. Convenient and easy to use, they have become the preferred digital interface format for more than a decade.
The KaVo OP 3D Pro system contains a large 10-inch touchscreen designed just like a tablet that is easy to use and navigate. This updated, enlarged interface makes it easy to select imaging modes and program acquisition parameters.
Panoramic Exam Multilayer Feature
The KaVo OP 3D Pro offers a unique multilayer feature that delivers 5 panoramic images with each scan. The multilayer function helps to compensate for anatomic anomalies and less-than-optimal patient positioning, with no increase to radiation dose. In fact, while delivering more accurate scans, the radiation scanning and dosage are equivalent to standard traditional panoramic X-rays.
Proprietary, Modality-Centric Features
The KaVo OP 3D Pro features several different modality-specific enhancements. For example, when utilized for panoramic scans, its ORTHOFocus technology provides the optimal panoramic layer for each panorex exam.
This system also offers a unique function known as AFC, or Automatic Facial Contour, for cephalometric exams. This feature automatically decreases the radiation exposure settings for cephalometric scans to capture more detailed images of soft tissue. The cephalometric scanning area is also fully adjustable, ensuring that only the area of interest is exposed to radiation during the scan, as well.
For dental cone beam imaging, the KaVo OP 3D Pro is available in two dental CBCT configurations, a small panel configuration and another larger field of view (FOV) configuration that has five selectable field of view options. The small panel configuration has two convenient FOV sizes; 6x4cm for single tooth implants or localized exams, and a 6x8cm FOV for a scan of the entire dental arch, which is useful for planning multiple implants or creating surgical guides. This smaller field of view option is a good choice for general dental practices that place implants, endodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
The larger FOV configuration with five selectable fields of view contains a 5x5cm FOV option for single-tooth exams, 6x8cm FOV for the entire dental arch, 8x8cm FOV to capture the entire dentition, 8x15cm FOV for the entire dentition plus the airway and cervical spine, and 13x15cm FOV for the entire craniofacial region. This more versatile dental cone beam system helps support a greater range of dental specialties including general dentists, endodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, dental sleep specialists and more.
Advanced Technology Functionality for CBCT Modality
The KaVo OP 3D Pro Offers SMARTVIEW Technology for CBCT exams. This feature allows operators to ensure proper patient and anatomical positioning by taking a SMARTVIEW scout image before capturing the actual scan. This enables the operator to make positioning adjustments to achieve optimal image quality before exposing the patient to radiation, minimizing radiation dose and following the ALARA principle.
The OP 3D from KaVo also offers flexible resolution settings for CBCT exams, enabling the operator to select different resolution settings for each field of view. There is also aMAR (Metal Artifact Reduction) opton, which helps reduce artifacts and noise that can be caused by metals in the mouth, such as braces, fillings and crowns.
KaVo OP 3D Pro also includes several settings to help minimize patient dose. The Low Dose Technology (LDT) Scan can be used for radiation-sensitive patients or to capture follow-up scans where high image resolution is not necessarily. This setting can deliver a significant reduction in radiation dose, up to 80% lower than the Standard Resolution scan used for typical CBCT exams.
KaVo OP 3D Pro also features a High Resolution setting for capturing extremely detailed, high-resolution images for more precise and accurate diagnoses required for dental implants, oral surgeries or other applications. In addition to the High Resolution setting, this system also includes an Endo Resolution scan mode. This imaging mode, which is available for the smallest 3D field of view, can capture a high resolution 85 μm voxel scan with metal artifact reduction, ideal for endodontic exams and procedures.
