Efficiency is one of the top goals in any dental practice. Practitioners need to make sure that their office equipment delivers on that goal. Adding intraoral x-ray technology to their collection of quality dental chairs, units, and lights is the best way to ensure the most optimal set up.
X-rays are an integral part of the dental diagnosis. They help clinicians find cavities in their patient’s teeth, examine the surrounding anatomy, and assist in the progress of procedures such as root canals. Choosing a digital intraoral x-ray like Belmont’s PHOT-xIIs DC and Bel-Ray II AC x-rays provides dentists with the diagnostic tools they need for comprehensive examinations and treatment planning.
Some major benefits include:
- Crisp, clear imaging: Digital x-rays supply sharp exposures. This allows the operator to obtain more detailed information, helping them make more informed decisions and accurate diagnoses. PHOT-xIIs and Bel-Ray II feature small focal spots (0.4mm and 0.7mm, respectively) for absolute precision. Pairing this with the easy-to-position x-ray heads yields peak productivity when taking an exposure.
- Customize each exposure: Once an exposure is taken with film, there’s no going back. If there was a mistake in positioning or clarity settings, the clinician has no choice but to take yet another exposure, consuming valuable time that could be better spent diagnosing the current patient or moving on to another consultation. Digital x-rays enable the dentist to send exposures directly to the computer, ensuring the highest quality and clarity with little to no development time. Both PHOT-xIIs and Bel-Ray II run on digital radiographic systems, giving you clear imaging in real-time. The operator can also personalize control module settings such as exposure time, tooth type, mA, and patient size, resulting in perfect exposures every time.
- Flexibility to switch from film to digital mode: Trends are moving toward the use of digital x-rays with prime benefits, but some clinicians choose to stick with what they feel most comfortable. With that in mind, PHOT-xIIs and Bel-Ray II provide both film and digital modes. This supports staff preferences while still delivering sharp imaging and quality benefits.
Belmont’s intraoral x-rays are built specifically to support the demands and needs of the everyday practice by providing crisp imaging with capabilities of exposure setting customization and the option of film or digital mode.
