Digital X-rays have revolutionized the ability of dental professionals to create treatment plans based on crystal clear images that are completely reliable. In just a few seconds, these space-age X-ray machines can create thousands of digital images of a single tooth or the whole mouth combining the best images into one high definition image. This provides incomparable sharpness to the images rendering them into the best dental X-rays that can be produced.
Dr. Shawn Matian is the founder of BioDental which focuses on providing biocompatible dentistry for his patients living in Woodland Hills and nearby areas. Digital X-rays are a large part of providing dental services in an environmentally conscious way. Not only do they produce exceptional images, they eliminate thousands of pounds of toxic waste that is a by-product of analog X-rays.
A very important benefit of digital X-ray is that patients are exposed to far less radiation than that required by analog X-ray technology. Not only is the radiation less, images are so clear that retakes are rarely necessary. This is particularly important when working with children or those patients who are under treatment for other medical conditions such as cancer.
Digital X-ray equipment is always evolving to better serve those who need clear images to treat their patients. Dr. Matian is proud to announce that he has acquired the most advanced digital X-ray machine available. It is capable of producing 2D and 3D images of incomparable clarity in just a few minutes.
Developed by Sirona the global innovation leader for dental equipment, the ORTHOPHOS SL 3D has several space-age features that combine to produce digital X-ray images at the lowest possible radiation dose. Woodland Hills residents can take advantage of this technology each time they come in to resolve a dental problem or as part of their annual dental checkup.
The new addition to Dr. Matian’s modern biodental practice provides several benefits for his patients. He can more precisely position the equipment to focus on three different volumes of the mouth ranging from an area around one tooth to the whole mouth.
Patient positioning is much easier and far more comfortable due to the attention given to ergonomic design. The time it takes to get the images is extremely short. There are comfortable guides for the head which allow Dr. Matian to tilt the head to get better views of the teeth and jaw.
The images are immediately available and are digitally stored within the office system. This makes it easy to retrieve them when needed. No more endless files of analog film X-rays that need to be searched.
Diagnosis and treatment
Dental X-rays have been used for decades to assist dentist in diagnosing decay, assessing the health of the roots and to plan treatment. With digital images this task has been made much easier due to the incomparable quality of the images.
Dr. Matian has acquired the ORTHOPHOS SL 3D system to enable him to confidently plan and treat dental issues using these remarkable images. It is easy to compare X-rays year to year as the images are available at a click of the mouse.
Patients are delighted to be able to clearly see the issues that Dr. Matian has identified and to understand the treatment plan recommended. Clear, recognizable images are a key communication tool that provides patients with an ability to make better decisions about their dental health.
Digital X-rays are an investment in patient safety and in patient satisfaction. Dr. Matian is excited to have this revolutionary equipment available for his patients residing in Woodland Hills and surrounding areas. Whether you need significant restoration work or a simple cleaning and checkup, digital dental X-rays will be part of the service provided by BioDental Metal Free Dentistry.
