Digital Intraoral Sensors: What Makes One Brand Different from the Next?

It’s a well-known fact that digital sensors offer greater image quality than their film counterparts. But they also have a reputation for being easy to break and complicated to use, which begs the question: are they worth the investment? The answer is yes—as long as you know what to look for.

High image quality should be at the top of your priority list for intraoral sensor technology. This is the key to keeping your diagnostic capabilities at the highest level. In addition, the ideal intraoral sensor is designed with ergonomics and durability in mind to ensure patient comfort and guard against breakage. Ease of use is also a must, because you want a sensor that will facilitate—and not complicate—your workflow.  All of these features should be your baseline to measure against as you choose the right intraoral sensor for your practice.
