When we hear the word x-ray, the first thing that often comes to mind is the device that shows a person’s skeleton. Patients are often asked to get them during medical examinations, or when they experience injuries. X-rays help doctors find out how serious the injury is and to apply the most appropriate treatment.
But x-rays aren’t just limited to bones. Dental x-rays also exist, and they help dentists make their patient’s teeth better. These types of x-rays have a lot of things to offer when it comes to viewing a person’s teeth, and one of the best ones offer a panoramic dental x-ray experience.
The Midmark OPG Vantage Progeny
Dental x-rays also called radiographs, are image representations of a person’s teeth that dentists’ utilise to gauge oral health. These kinds of x-rays use low-level radiations to capture the insides of a patient’s gums and teeth. Identifying and seeing issues like tooth decay, impacted teeth, and cavities become pretty easy and efficient.
But the Midmark OPG Vantage does more than just that. See, the Progeny Vantage delivers accurate diagnostic images with very reliable consistency, due to a combination of innovative technological advancements. There are different types of dental x-rays, like bitewing and occlusal x-rays. However, the Midmark OPG Vantage Progeny is a master of the panoramic dental x-ray type.
A Panoramic X-Ray Experience Unlike Any Other
The Midmark OPG Progeny Vantage is equipped with automatic spinal compensation, advanced robotics, and CCD imaging technology (thanks to the 3-Motion Imaging Rotation set), which creates high-calibre panoramic imaging. Complemented with a fitting focal trough and bolstered by intricate multi-dimensional movement, the Progeny Vantage is able to give excellent clarity and contrast in the whole dental arch. The quality of the x-ray images is definitely above average, giving dentists a clearer picture of the issue.
Additionally, the five pre-programmed selections act as templates for every single dental exam. The Progeny Vantage also has an array of augmented techniques that range from 54-84kV and 4-14mA, giving more options and control for each patient’s unique needs. With this, dentists would be able to properly guide patients throughout the whole procedure and give a panoramic dental x-ray experience unlike any other.
Other Dental X-Ray Types
Aside from panoramic x-rays, the Progeny Vantage is quite capable of taking other dental x-ray types as well.
• TMJ Studies – Designed to capture both open and closed images of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), with the results gathered in a single picture.
• Pediatric Pan – X-rays have minimised dose, with clearer diagnostic images.
• Bitewing – The entire bitewings in a single image.
• Standard Adult Pan – Diagnostic images are very clear and well captured.
• Enhanced Adult Pan – To make the picture clearer, the Progeny Vantage increases interproximal spacing.
Identifying every dental issue and going through with the procedures is what really matters. This makes an efficient dental x-ray machine, whether it specialises in panoramic dental x-ray or not, needed by every single dentist. At the end of the day, it is the patient and how satisfied they are with the treatment that matters, and every dentist should provide above-average results.
