Dr. Cheryl L. Held places a high level of importance on staying on the cutting edge of technology when it comes to patient care. That is why we use the state-of-the-art imaging system in our office: the Planmeca ProMax® S3 Dental Imaging Unit.
Digital X-rays for Advanced Diagnostics
- A Better Patient Experience: The open-patient positioning and side entry minimize errors caused by incorrect patient positioning and allow our team members to monitor patients from both the front and side. The open-concept design provides easy access for all patients: standing or seated.
- Safety: The Planmeca ProMax® S3 is a digital X-ray system, which produces highly detailed imagery using up to 80% less radiation than traditional dental X-rays. Although the radiation emitted from traditional X-rays is completely safe when proper protocols are followed (e.g. wearing an X-ray apron), digital imagery eliminates the need for additional protection nearly altogether. However, we continue to use added protection for all patients’ 100% safety.
- Better Diagnostics: Our team is able to obtain better diagnostic images, which enables Dr. Held to provide better treatment for our patients. She has diagnosed some interesting cases using the Planmeca ProMax® S3 digital X-rays, observing radiologic details that might not have been picked up at this exquisite level by traditional X-rays.
Dr. Held wants to provide the best treatment available with first-class materials and equipment. She always looks at the finest available technologies to benefit her patients, which is why she is so excited about the Planmeca ProMax® S3.
