Things to Consider Before Purchasing a New X-Ray Sensor for Your Dental Practice

Over the years, dental imaging has evolved tremendously, allowing dentists to serve their patients better. Digital radiography, for example, has significantly developed. If you don’t know a lot about our latest digital x-ray sensor, Blū, consider reading the Things to Consider Before Purchasing a New X-Ray Sensor article below. 

Precision and Accuracy

The most important thing to consider when choosing a dental x-ray sensor is the quality of images it produces. The results should be not only precise but also accurate. The industry standard for X-ray machines is (+/-)5% for all tests at any time. It is important to ensure that the new dental sensor meets these requirements before you purchase it.  

Ease of Use

The digital dental sensor in the system should be easy to move around inside the patient’s mouth and also easy to use. The sequence of use enables the system to shoot and move the sensor as well as take an x-ray. Additionally, the system also automatically dates, numbers by tooth, mounts, correctly orients, and saves the digital x-ray images. This eliminates the need to develop and mount then file the x-rays physically. Also, it saves your staff time. Ultimately, improving efficiency and case acceptance in your practice. The digital x-rays can also be shared securely and safely with insurance companies or referring specialists through email or over the internet. 

The Image Quality

Unlike traditional film, digital dental sensors like Blū produce better and consistent quality images. The image quality Blū by Digital Doc produces goes unmatched when compared to competitors. The images provided also show variations in density as well as sharpness. Pick a sensor that has the highest quality. Dr. Hoang, a dentist in Bethlehem, GA, says, showing patients the quality images captured are what motivates them to say yes to treatment.

Comfortable and Single-Size Sensor

The dental sensor you choose should come in a size that fits both adults and children comfortably. A digital dental sensor with rounded corners makes the experience more comfortable as compared to film. This, in turn, makes it easier for your hygienist. Additionally, the intraoral sensor should also have a direct USB connection, which will make it easier for assistants to switch easily between different operations. 

Safety of Your New Digital Dental Sensor

When purchasing a portable dental x-ray sensor for your facility, you should take into consideration the safety of both you and your staff as well as your patients. Different models may require different exposure levels to capture an accurate image. Despite technological advancements to increase the standards with regard to this, it remains a concern. Therefore, you should do adequate research on the safety of the various models in the market before deciding on the dental x-ray sensor you would like to purchase.
