New York, NY, May 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Frederick Stange’s dental office in Manhattan is at the cutting edge of digital technology. By introducing panoramic X-rays Dr. Stange has reduced the radiation patients are normally exposed to. The use of X-rays has helped treat cavities, holes, bleeding of gums and infection for a long time. But with digital X-ray technology patients are better protected from unwanted after effects caused by radiation.
The introduction of panoramic X-rays at Dr. Stange’s Manhattan office has reduced radiation exposure by 80 percent. The effectiveness of the technology has prompted many dental practices to switch to digital X-ray machines.
With the Orthopantomograph OP 200 D, an advanced dental technology that takes panoramic X-rays, dentists at Dr. Stange’s dental office can take pictures of the upper and lower jaws, and produce three dimensional images used in surgeries. The machine does not use film or need processing chemicals, and provides dentists with a clear imagealmost instantly.
“Digital X-rays allow us to reduce the amount of total radiation exposure. Our machine is not a ‘one size fits all’ and we are able to change settings to accommodate our human differences,” explained Dr. Stange.
