It is no doubt that effective and accurate X-rays have drastically changed the workflow in all areas of dentistry. Over the years, 3D printing has become a hot topic in the medical technology field, and according to Dentsply Sirona, many orthodontists are just now realizing the significant improvements that 3D X-rays are making.

With Dentsply’s 3D cone beam computed tomography scan, dental technicians can see the full picture with regards to the patients issues- it dramatically improves the identification process of possible complications. Dentsply’s  Orthophos® SL and the Orthophos® S are extremely easy to use, have independently verified low dose settings, and are equipped with the latest image-capturing technology designed to make 3D X-rays as safe, clear and easy to capture as possible.

“Some manufacturers have invested time in developing in-built aids to help the operator,” says Adam Cartwright, Dentsply Sirona Imaging Specialist.  “These functions make it easier to capture the sharpest image possible, reduce the risk of retakes and optimise the chances of adhering to the ALARA principle”.

According to the latest dental imaging report by iData Research, both intraoral and extraoral X-rays with digital technology are rapidly penetrating the market and replacing analog systems. Digital technology provides dental practitioners with numerous technological and operational efficiencies when operating X-ray systems. With digital technology, dentists are able to immediately upload and manipulate X-ray images using imaging software. This allows dentists to observe enhanced images of the X-rays and make more accurate diagnoses. Likewise, dentists are able to save a greater amount of time between patients, thereby increasing patient turnover. Furthermore, switching to digital technology helps to minimize the amount of radiation exposure to patients.

“When exposure to the lowest dose is the determining factor, it is essential to be able to rely on the equipment to capture the requisite detail every time. The technology behind dental X-ray equipment continues to advance, enabling sharper images to be captured at lower doses” says Cartright.
