Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
DEXIS™ Platinum™ Sensor
The Platinum sensor lies at the heart of the DEXIS system. This “plug-n-ray” solution features:
- PerfectSize™ Sensor—One Size Fits All
- TrueComfort™ Design
- WiseAngle™ Cable Exit
- PureImage™ Technology
- ScatterGuard™ Protection
- Direct USB Connectivity
- Custom-fit Holders
Thoughtful Design Leads to Greater Comfort
A double blind, randomized, controlled trial involving DEXIS Platinum and another sensor showed that 88% of the participants found DEXIS to be the most comfortable sensor.*
The unique, ergonomic shape of the DEXIS Platinum™ sensor fits more comfortably against the anatomy and can be moved around the mouth more efficiently even in tough areas such as the upper molars and lower premolars.
Remarkable Image Quality
The ability to see subtleties using digital radiography is crucial to diagnosis, collaboration, and patient communication. Through a combination of advanced hardware and software technologies, the DEXIS Platinum sensor is able to deliver clinically meaningful images that are extremely clear and highly detailed.
Quantum Efficiency – Fancy words, simple concept: DEXIS hardware and software work in harmony to compensate for radiation variances thus guarding against under and over exposure. That means you are able to get more clinically useable, more consistent images at a wider range of exposure settings. You benefit from a reduction in the number of exposure-related dental x-ray retakes, and your patients benefit from the reduction in radiation.
