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.

Wow! We’re pleased to announce that we’ve hit a huge milestone. We almost have 1000 users on our handpiece repair website.
To celebrate we’re giving away a FONA Dental Eagle Essence to the 1000th user! We’d love it if you could like and share our post to help us hit our target. Even more, if you don’t already use our repair service, head over to the website and register today to see what all the fuss is about!
Handpiece breakdowns can be far more costly than most people realise with numerous hidden costs often unaccounted for. There is the cost of replacement parts but then there is also chair-side downtime, postal delays, labour, delivery charges/recorded delivery, workshop delays and so it goes on. Further to that, if you post your handpiece off in the ‘Free Post Jiffy Bag’, no one will want to know about it when it doesn’t reach it’s destination and your handpiece just becomes another piece of history!
Our mission at Trigiene is to reduce downtime and inconvenience for the dentist through service and products so that he/she can concentrate on what they do best, providing top quality treatments to their clients. Having recognised this, Response24 was born offering a hassle free handpiece repair service. Every handpiece breakdown is tracked and traced from the minute it leaves the practice reception to the minute it is returned. The collection packs are collected the same day, the repair quotation is available the next day and the repaired handpiece is returned within 24 hours. The collections and returns are completely free, the only thing you pay for it the repair itself (if the quote is accepted).
How can we offer a free collection and delivery service? Because our repair quotations are so competitive it is very rare for a quotation to be declined!
Trigiene were lucky enough to be invited to the FONA HQ office for some valuable training back in June. Our technicians took part in some hands-on training and are now up to speed with FONA Extraoral Imaging, Intraoral Imaging, CAD/CAM System, Treatment Centres and Lasers.
After the terrible Grenfell Tower news, we’ve made a charity donation to www.rapidreliefteam.org who are supporting those who need it most!
