Thick digital sensors can’t reach deep into a smaller patient mouth
Thick and inflexible digital sensors can even cause bruising when pushed deep into the mouth.
Digital sensors require bags that can easily break exposing your patient to bacteria from a previous patient! See this study.
Digital sensors have poor resolution compared to film.
PHP = 4-5 LP/mm. Wired 10-13 LP/mm. Film = 20 LP/mm. See this study. With digital’s lower resolution, small image details are missed. Or worse, small details can be magnified triggering a false diagnosis! Ask doctors using digital sensors, “Based on a digital X-Ray, how many times have you opened up a tooth only to find nothing?
Digital sensors are ridiculously expensive to replace!
For your Patients:
Film is thin, comfortable, safe, and provides the highest Image resolution!
For Your Practice:
Film is inexpensive! Now make film easy to work and see it’s full potential by upgrading to an ImageMax!
