TORONTO (PRWEB) October 30, 2018
St. Lawrence Dentistry has been using digital imaging since 2005, but in 2018 the Mississauga dental clinic added the industry’s most advanced digital x-ray technology to their practice, the Schick 33 digital system.
Digital x-rays are always used sparingly during dental exams, and only when it is necessary to more accurately pinpoint the location of dental issue, make a diagnosis and develop the optimal treatment plan. In comparison to traditional radiography, digital x-rays involve the use of sensors instead of photographic film. These sensors are connected directly to a computer and when taking a digital x-ray, the sensor moves from tooth to tooth, immediately producing a high-resolution image for viewing.
The advantages of digital dental x-rays cannot be overstated; they are faster and more efficient than traditional x-rays, they significantly reduce radiation exposure, they do not require the use of chemicals in the image developing process, and the resulting image can easily be enhanced for a more accurate diagnosis.
The new Schick 33 digital system allows dentists an unprecedented level of control over digital x-ray imaging, and provides the highest resolution images available in the industry. Herein lies the benefit of Schick 33, the powerful imaging enhancement system allows dentists to move the interactive image enhancer to quickly adjust image quality for optimal viewing, and as a result make a more sophisticated diagnosis and treatment plan.
St. Lawrence Dentistry has seen the advantage of Schick 33’s digital x-rays in all areas of their dental services including general dentistry, endodontics, periodontics and restorative services. Easy access to high-resolution dental x-rays has also proven useful in patient education on dental issues and treatment plans as digital x-ray images can easily be viewed side-by-side to show the development dental issues and demonstrate treatment progress to patients.
