Dental imaging has moved from the days of film, which for years has been reliable, easy and relatively cheap giving good results. Photos today are barely used by film on a traditional camera, but instead taken using a mobile phone.
In today’s world, the way forward is moving on to the world of digital. Dental x-rays are as much a part of the dental practice as is a drill or a dental chair. Digital X ray sensors, with digital detector type image plates, are the latest technology that improves the dental imaging industry.
Dental imaging for dental purposes now uses digital X ray sensors in addition to connected networks and applicable software. Sized to accommodate both adult sized mouths and child-sized mouths, digital sensors work in hand with intraoral cameras and are a more convenient way of providing X ray images for dentists to properly diagnose teeth and oral complications.
Digital X ray sensors are easy to use with intraoral cameras and minimize exposure to harmful radiation. When the sensor is placed in the patients mouth, a click of a button and the image is almost instantly displayed on a computer screen; the image can be viewed and edited quickly.
The use of digital X ray sensors is a fairly new innovation in the dental industry. Where large X ray machines were once the norm for all dentist offices, the incorporation of digital X ray sensors offers dentists more brilliant images for their patients. The advantage is a quicker, more accurate reading of these imagines and saves dental money by preventing continued visits to address dental issues.
