Buyers Guide: Digital X-rays

With digital panoramic radiographs, we are able to completely visualize both upper and lower jaws in just a few seconds. There isn’t even a waiting period for the film to develop. Add to that a set of digital bitewing x-rays, and you have a set of records for a patient’s entire dentition that are more diagnostic than traditional film, were captured while exposing the patient to less radiation exposure, and could be completed by your staff in less than 90 seconds. With a digital panoramic x-ray system in your practice, if you do encounter a questionable area that requires a periapical radiograph, you can do so in that one area. 

Here are some important questions to ask when you want to buy dental x-rays at a local X-Ray company, or online for a lower price than you ever thought possible.

Questions to Ask 

Is it compatible with my practice management software?
What type of connection do I need, fiber-optic, Ethernet, or USB?
Will I be able upgrade to cephalometric or cone beam radiographs with this system?
What is the footprint and where will it go?
What is the warranty on the system?
What alternate views are available depending on the needs of my practice?
What I Need to Know

Compatibility – The main thing to be aware of is whether or not the unit integrates into your existing workflow.
Footprint – While many of these machines are slimmer than ever, be aware of the footprint of the machine. It not only needs to physically fit into your practice, it also needs to fit in an area that integrates with your patient flow.
Upgrades – If you are considering getting 3D cone beam at some point, but are more comfortable starting with a 2D digital panoramic system, consider a machine that has an upgrade path to CBCT.
Tomograms – Some machines allow alternate views in which the focal trough is slightly shifted. Combining these views gives a “3D-like” effect that can show you image “slices” of a particular area of pathology or interest.
