We are proud to announce the addition of our new digital panoramic x-ray machine to our office. The greatest benefits of having this new technology in our dental office is that it uses less radiation than our old film panoramic x-ray unit, the x-ray capture is immediate so we do not have to wait for film to develop, we are now able to see more detail in the x-rays, and we are also able to review the x-rays with our patients much easier than before on computer monitors in our rooms.
We have already received some compliments from our patients on how nice it is for them to be able to see their x-rays and review them with us. A couple have also been impressed by the speed at which we were able to pull up their x-rays and review them. Taking our dental x-rays in less time has allowed us to speed up the appointment process, which is extremely convenient for our patients.
Dr. Martinez is excited about the technology because of the improvement in diagnostic quality, as well as the software tools available that aid in diagnosing abnormalities and issues. Interproximal caries (tooth decay) are now more clear and distinguishable on digital x-rays. With the implementation of digital x-ray sensors (intraoral, or in the mouth) and the digital panoramic x-ray machine (extraoral, outside the mouth), it has helped us improve the quality and efficiency of our patients’ dental treatment. Stay tuned, we have introduced other technology that we are excited to tell you about.
