Dental cone beam imaging continues to change the ways dentists can diagnose, educate and plan treatment for patients, capable of capturing highly detailed 3D x-rays.
Dr. Jeff Rohde, DDS, MS
Before considering what digital intraoral x-ray system to purchase for your practice, it is important to understand how much more powerful every digital system is over traditional film x-rays.
Dental diode lasers can reduce healing times and make the procedures less invasive for patients. Most diodes are small, table-top devices that can easily fit on the counter in an operatory.
Capable of capturing the intraoral x-rays that are a part of many hygiene and treatment appointments, sensors offer better images than film while taking less time and reducing radiation exposure.
These imaging systems are great for getting a baseline of a patient's complete mouth at the first appointment and can be used to check up on changes, as well as for diagnostics and treatment planning.
A variety of hard/soft tissue lasers can provide a practice with the ability to use the technology for less traumatic hard tissue procedures on enamel and dentin.
Digital sensors are more efficient and faster to use, can offer larger and more diagnostic images, eliminate the need to develop film. They also require significantly less radiation, something patients definitely care about.
