Why Digital X-rays?
The diagnostic ability of digital x-rays now exceeds that of film with up to 90% radiation exposure.
We have been using digital x-rays since 2000, and now with our new Kodak imaging system, we can detect decay (cavities) with 90% accuracy (verses 70% previously)* Logicon is a computer-aided-detection tool that provides important decision-support instrument for better patient care. Logicon provides an electronic second opinion by analyzing tooth density and demineralization patterns for interproximal (between the teeth) caries (decay) to help search for caries (cavities or decay) and determine whether they exist in the enamel or dentin. With one click, Logicon automatically scans all proximal (between the teeth) surfaces in a bitewing radiograph and gives a preview of the patient’s state of proximal (between the teeth) caries.
Improved Patient Care
The program also dramatic graphics and visual aids to help us communicate our diagnosis to patients in a way you can easily understand.treatment recommendations.
