If you’re on the fence about purchasing our x-ray system, read below to learn about the true cost-effectiveness of handheld x-rays.
Ensures Patient Security and Comfort
Patients today are much more demanding of their healthcare providers. Having to move patients from their dental chair to a dental x-ray room detracts from patient comfort. New patients may even be taken back by the lack of modern technology.
However, when you have a portable dental x-ray device, the need to move patients is eliminated. Patients can remain comfortable while the bedside x-ray device is used to get the necessary radiographic imagery needed.
A discussion about the cost-effectiveness of portable dental x-ray devices is incomplete until the limited amount of space they require is considered. Traditional x-ray equipment is so bulky that a lot of space has to be dedicated to it.
Rather than occupy an entire room as the traditional radiology equipment does, the XTG handheld x-ray device is so compact that one would hardly notice that another device from Digital Doc has been added to the operatory.
The space saved can be used for anything you want. You can even transform it into another operatory or use it for additional storage.
High Diagnostic Efficacy
Handheld dental x-ray devices make it easier to arrive at the right diagnosis the first time. Additionally, patients will be able to start treatment much sooner.
Getting high-quality x-ray images the first time means that the dental practice will not waste time on retaking x-ray images. So, the operating costs of the office will remain manageable.
Dr. Kristina Neda, a dentist in Georgetown, KY, agrees that dental offices with modern dental technology have a higher case acceptance. Patients feel confident in their decision to start treatment when they’re shown how urgent the problem is. Handheld x-rays allow you to do just that.
As you can see, portable dental X-Ray systems offer both clinical and cost-effectiveness benefits when compared to traditional x-ray devices. If you are looking to upgrade your x-ray system, contact Digital Doc, and we will happily help.
