In the dental field, radiography is an important tool used to diagnose a wide range of disease, stretching from caries and periodontal diagnosis to tooth development. Here we explore just four of the many benefits of Film Radiology in dentistry:
1. Picture Quality
Film X-ray offers outstanding picture quality. When diagnosing and treating caries or other dental lesions, it is important to know the extent of disease. The better the picture quality, the more confident the diagnosis.
2. Patient Comfort
The film itself is slim and pliable, optimizing patient comfort when the film is placed, as well as holding the film intra orally during exposure.
Most dental offices are already equipped with the technology used for film radiology. Furthermore, less in-office training is required because film is standard use in many offices.
4. Digital Capability
X-Ray Support developed the QuickShot, an instant film digitizer. It instantaneously converts film to high resolution digital images, without the cost and hassle of all new radiology equipment. The digital images can be stored electronically, shown to the patients on a monitor, and emailed securely to insurance or for referrals.
At X-Ray support, we know the importance of x-rays for optimal health. We not only offer film and development systems, but essential supplies and waste disposal to keep the dental office running smoothly. Contact us today!
