Q. Why should I consider Intra-Oral Sensors for my practice?
A. Best quality digital image, Improved workflow, Low radiation dose, No chemical disposal or dark-rooms, Instant chairside patient dialogue, quality digital enhancement.
Q. Sensors are too costly for my practice Fact: 80% of Sensors are sold into busy NHS practices for improved workflow
A. ‘Cost in use’ is what you really need to measure. When you consider cost of consumables (film, developing chemicals, chemical disposal or even replacing phosphor plates) then time considerations, over a 5 year period, Sensors really pay off.
Q. What if I drop the Sensor or the patient damages the cable?
A. With the Fona Stellaris Sensor this is no longer a worry. The Sensor has a unique patented replaceable cable that is only a small fraction of the cost of the Sensor. Every Sensor is supplied with one spare cable should there be any damage. The Sensor plate also contains a unique internal cushioning system to protect against falls and knocks.
Q. I’ve heard patients don’t like Sensors because they are bulky and uncomfortable in the mouth
A. The Fona Stellaris Sensor has rounded edges and rear mounted cable to aid patient comfort. Fact- most people prefer the feel of the new Sensor over the traditional film or phosphor plate that have sharp edges.
Q. How long does it take to acquire an image?
A. Instant. If the Sensor is positioned correctly your image will be on screen within 2 seconds of delivering the radiation dose.
Q. How much radiation is required to achieve a quality image?
A. Typically 1/5th of what is required with traditional film.
Q. Will it link in with my patient management software?
A. The software integrates seamlessly with most Patient Management Software systems.
Q. How quickly can we get an engineer to fix a problem?
A. Instantly. There is a 24/7 hotline and remote support available with the product. Once installed and staff trained it would be extremely rare for an engineer to need to make a site visit.
