Orthopantomograph OP300 by Instrumentarium
Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography is a diagnostic imaging technology that uses low dose radiation in a manner similar to conventional digital radiographic imaging, with the difference being that cone beam images are converted into a three-dimensional view that can then be manipulated by sophisticated computer software for a wide variety of applications, including implant, orthodontic, orthognathic TMJ, and diagnostic purposes.With cone beam-produced images, hundreds of “slices” of information are gathered and assembled by software into three-dimensional views of any aspect of any given study. Data can be imported into software for the purpose of comprehensive diagnostic analysis and pre-surgical treatment planning, as well as for the production of stereo-lithographic bio-models. Cone beam images are reconstructed by software into three-dimensional planes, each of which allow for interaction and manipulation. The diagnostician has the ability to specify precisely which section of the study will be visualized in each plane. If you are considering dental implants, endodontic treatment analysis, or orthodontic treatment, the OP300 technology is the standard-of-care for diagnosis and treatment phases.

INNOVATION & QUALITY of Pelton & Crane
Innovation and quality are traditions that have kept Pelton & Crane at the forefront of the dental industry for over 108 years. Pelton & Crane was founded by Dr. R.M. Pelton, a dentist who felt the need in his own practice for a furnace used to bake porcelain inlays. He called upon a friend, Mr. Crane, who was an electrical engineer, to help him with the design and construction. The new device worked well. Other dentists saw it, were impressed with it, and requested that they be permitted to buy one.
These events led to the birth in 1900 of the Pelton & Crane Company in the basement of Dr. Pelton's home in Detroit. This little company grew to the point where it was necessary for Dr. Pelton and Mr. Crane to give up their respective professions and devote their full time to the business of Pelton & Crane. Dr. Pelton and Mr. Crane always insisted on the highest quality, as well as delivering relevant innovation to the dental industry. Early on, the company expanded their offering of dental equipment to include cabinet-based delivery systems and sterilizers. Gradually, the company grew to produce lights, chairs, and cabinetry. Today, Pelton & Crane offers a complete line of dental equipment.
