Digital Doc's X80 Dental Camera and LuM Transillumination

Our X80 Dental Camera and LuM Transillumination

When you own Digital Doc’s X80 Liquid Lens Auto Focus dental camera, you separate yourself from other dental practices. This combination of dental technology is exceptionally effective when diagnosing patients. Quality is infused into every component of the IRIS X80 dental camera, from its high-performance impact-resistant and seamless body to its crystal clear imagery. Have you tried pairing your X80 dental camera with Digital Doc’s LuM Transillumination device? Combine these two devices, and you will bring your case acceptance to a whole new level. In the article below, we discuss Digital Doc’s X80 Dental Camera and LuM Trasillumination device.

What is the LuM Transillumination?

This product was designed to enhance the IRIS dental camera’s diagnostic powers by shining uniquely position LED light upon the surface of the tooth. By doing so, any defects that may have been missed by other imaging technologies can be seen. These defects show up as impurities in the perpendicular light.

How Can the LuM be Paired with the X80 Dental Camera?

Using IRIS dental technology and the LuM Transilluminator is simple. The LuM attachment slides onto any of your dental cameras and is integrated into the same software. After that, you can use the device on your patient and show them any impurities. Sometimes you’re not able to see everything in an x-ray, so it’s so important to invest in a high-quality dental camera and caries detection device.

What Are the Benefits of Using the LuM and X80 Auto-focus Camera?

First, you don’t have to use two separate devices while getting diagnostic images of your patient. The LuM slides onto your IRIS X80 dental camera, and with just a click of a button, you capture crisp, crystal-clear images. As you know, high-quality images are essential for proper diagnosis. 

Secondly, educating your patients about dental conditions can be a challenge, but that gets a lot easier when using Digital Doc products. The X80 auto-focus dental camera paired with the LuM shows patients exactly what they need to see to say yes to treatment. Furthermore, seeing is believing in the dental industry. 

Dental caries is one of the most common dental conditions patients suffer from. Using this advanced technology is a way to make your dental practice stand out. Dr. David Moghada, a modern dentist in Easton, PA, says that patients are more receptive to treatment if they can see their dental problems. Dental technology does exactly that. Additionally, when dental caries are detected early on, patients will start treatment sooner. In other words, patients will save time and money, which will build patient rapport.

The Many Technological Advancements in Caries Diagnosis

As any dentist will tell you, catching dental caries early gives a head start in their successful treatment, but it has not always been easy to accurately diagnose carious lesions. With technological tools like the LuM transilluminator, clinicians are now in a better position to detect lesions early and make appropriate treatment recommendations. Here are some of the technological advancements in caries diagnosis.

Ability to Document Caries Progression

Technological caries detection devices, such as the LuM Transillumination device, bring the power of today’s dental cameras to the fore. The caries detection tool gives dentists the ability to examine each lesion and capture images that are then referred to during subsequent patient visits. With the recorded images on file, a clinician is better able to make an accurate diagnosis regarding not just the presence of dental caries but their activity status as well.

Assessing the Effectiveness of Preventive Treatment

Gone are the days when the method of choice to deal with caries was the surgical intervention. Today, attention has shifted more towards preventive treatment, especially once the caries is caught early at the time when they haven’t gone deep or become wide.

People respond differently to treatment, and as a dentist, you are always providing the best treatment and overall experience possible. Caries detection tools address this need and offer insights on how effective preventive caries treatment has been.

If the dentist finds that the treatment doesn’t have the desired effect, he or she can promptly change treatment modalities before the carious lesions have a chance to progress into forms that will necessitate more invasive and costly interventions. Caries treatment is most helpful when the caries are caught early, and the best transilluminator, combined with the best intraoral camera, make that early treatment possible.

Motivating Patients

Transillumination tools like the LuM device also make it possible for dentists to speak the same language with their patients. By showing each patient the caries lesions on their teeth, you send a powerful message to the patient, and this will, in turn, provide a strong motivator for the patient to pay greater attention to their oral hygiene. Every dentist would love to attend to a well-educated patient (on matters of oral care), and these technological tools aid in that effort.

Reducing the Need for Radiological Tests

Over the decades, the field of dentistry has relied on radiological diagnostic tests, such as X-rays, to detect and monitor dental caries. However, such radiological tests have their own limitations and are not desirable in some situations. Dr. David Moghadam, a dentist in Easton, PA, explains that caries detection tools do an excellent job of detecting caries, and this reduces the need to subject patients to radiological tests.

This isn’t to say that radiology, and X-rays in particular, no longer have a role to play in caries detection or treatment. Rather, the existence of the LuM transillumination device and others like it increases the available diagnostic options so that a dentist will only order an X-ray when the situation warrants it, such as when additional information (visualizing the pulp chamber, for example) is needed while determining the progression and degree of activity of carious lesions.

For dentists looking to adopt these transilluminators, the cost is no longer such a big point of contention since these tools are now available at an affordable price point. Suppliers are also willing to work with you to smooth out the learning curve. There is, therefore, no better time to receive dental care than now since there is an abundance of tools to help in early detection and treatment. Digital Doc is proud to be a big part of this revolution, and we promise to continue offering the best dental cameras, the best transillumination devices, and a host of other dental technology needed to provide better care.
