Tips for buying Dental X-ray Scanner Parts

  1. Facilities should examine the number and type of procedures to be performed annually, as well as the types of patients to be treated before buying a dental radiographic unit or digital dental imaging system.
  2. A panoramic unit with cephalometric imaging capabilities should be considered where skull view radiography is performed frequently. Facilities treating a wide range of patients should consider a unit that accommodates both seated and standing patients and has motorized vertical height adjustment.
  3. An intraoral unit should be considered in facilities performing mainly routine dental radiography; digital systems may be useful if immediate image analyses for endodontics and implantation planning are performed frequently.
  4. An intraoral system with a half-wave, rectified x-ray generator is recommended for facilities that desire a system for routine dental radiography; the SID should be about 200 mm standard.
  5. There is no need for special system capabilities, such as TMJ or cephalometry, in the intraoral systems, because they are used only for routine imaging. These systems should accommodate all patient types needing routine exams.
  6. Two types of digital systems are available: CCD and image plates. Image plates are very similar to conventional intraoral films and are compatible with existing equipment. Digital systems in general have become more popular for dental x-rays due to the fact that chemical-based film processing can be discarded.
  7. Images from the CCD detector are displayed very quickly. Retakes can be initiated faster, minimizing total time and exposure. A CCD must be integrated with the x-ray generator.
  8. Facilities should keep in mind that the additional ongoing costs associated with film based dental radiography, including film and film processing, processing chemicals and equipment, film storage, and record keeping can be considerable, depending on the number of patients treated. Using a digital radiography system can eliminate it.
  9. There are costs that cannot be avoided in both film based and digital radiography. These include plastic covers for equipment that contacts the patient, as well as radiation protection/monitoring equipment for patients and staff.
