Undergoing dental x-rays can be an uncomfortable and invasive experience. Traditional x-rays are taken intra-orally, requiring patients to bite down awkwardly onto hard and bulky sensors. Not to mention, it can take several minutes to complete a full mouth series of x-rays. At our office, we believe patients deserve a better experience. That is why we feature fully digital imaging via the Planmeca Promax. With this technology, Sterling digital x-rays are taken from outside the body in much less time and using far less radiation than traditional x-rays require.
|Planmeca Promax is an innovative new technology that is capable of producing highly detailed images without sacrificing patient comfort or safety. The images produced by our digital x-ray machine enhance our diagnostic capabilities and make it easier to store and share images as needed. Furthermore, Planmeca Promax generates a comprehensive view of each patient’s anatomy, making it easy to map out restorative and cosmetic dental treatment plans.|

I thought traditional x-rays were safe. Is a Planmeca Promax Digital X-ray a better alternative?
Though film x-rays are safe, they still emit small quantities of radiation. Planmeca Promax has raised the bar in dental healthcare, emitting far less radiation than outdated film radiology. In fact, the Planmeca Promax produces up to 10 times less radiation than some traditional x-rays!
