In the ever-evolving world of dentistry, embracing cutting-edge technology is not merely a choice; it's a necessity. One such technological marvel that has reshaped dental diagnostics is the Planmeca Bitewings system. This innovative technology has not only transformed the way dental X-rays are captured but has also significantly enhanced the diagnostic accuracy, patient experience, and overall efficiency of dental practices.
Bitewing X-rays are a fundamental component of routine dental checkups. They are vital in detecting dental issues that may remain hidden during a standard clinical examination. At Patibandla Dental, we use these X-rays to capture images of the biting surfaces of the upper and lower teeth and the surrounding bone. Bitewings are invaluable for identifying cavities, bone loss, and other dental concerns in their early stages.
How Does Planmeca Bitewings Work?
Instead of traditional film or analog sensors, Planmeca Bitewings uses a digital sensor. This sensor is typically covered with a disposable sheath to maintain hygiene. The sensor is placed inside the patient's mouth to capture the images. The dentist in Canton, OH, then sets up the X-ray machine to capture bitewing X-rays.
When ready, the X-ray machine emits minimal radiation to expose the digital sensor. It's important to note that Planmeca Bitewings employs ultra-low radiation doses, prioritizing patient safety. The digital sensor records the X-ray images in real time. These images are immediately visible on the computer monitor.
The captured images are processed by specialized software. This software enhances image quality and allows for various adjustments to improve diagnostic accuracy.
With Planmeca Bitewings, there's no need to wait for film development. The images are readily available for review on a computer screen within seconds. This immediate access to images allows dentists to discuss findings with patients in real time.
The digital bitewing X-rays provide dentists with a clear view of the patient's oral structures, including the teeth, supporting bone, and adjacent tissues. Dentists can use these images to diagnose dental issues such as cavities, bone loss, and other oral conditions. The high-resolution images aid in the early detection of problems, leading to more effective treatment planning.
