Here at Valleau, VanDeven, and Massie Dentistry for Children we have invested in the most up-to-date technology and equipment to make your child's visit with us safe, comfortable and efficient.
Scan-X phosphor plate imagining technology
- Dental radiographs are arguably one of the most useful diagnostic tools for a dental clinician. Dental radiographs can help your dentist identify diseases and developmental problems before they become serious health issues. Early detection of an infection or injury also can limit or prevent further damage to other areas of the mouth.
Our office takes radiation exposure very seriously and we follow guidelines set forth by the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. http://www.imagegently.org/
- Phosphor plates are a type of dental imaging technology that are 30 times thinner than digital sensors but use the fastest (least radiation) film speed setting for exposures.
- The small size of the phosphor plates help make dental imagining as comfortable for our child patients as possible.
