By using the latest X-ray equipment, we provide the highest quality imaging with the least possible exposure to radiation radiology.
Featuring a size 0 sensor designed specifically for pediatric patients, the RVG 6100 is ideal for pedodontists and delivers up to 40% less radiation when compared to size 1 RVG sensors. With its lighting-fast USB 2.0 connection, the sensor produces crystal-clear images in a snap—giving you instant access to high-quality intraoral images.
All RVG sensors provide maximum durability and flexibility. Completely waterproof, RVG sensors can be safely submerged in disinfectant. The shock-resistant cases and silicon padding offers protection from falls, bites, and other damage. In addition, fiber optics protect the detector from x-rays—ensuring a long lifespan with an attractive return of investment.
Industry-Leading Image Quality
Our advanced technology with optical fiber yields high image resolution, while greater exposure latitude helps ensure optimal image capture over a wide range of exposure, all in a compact sensor—making it an ideal choice for pediatric applications.
- In addition to its exceptional image resolution, the RVG 6100 is also one of the fastest digital imaging sensor on the market—displaying images in less than two seconds
The sensor remote control enables convenient chairside examinations, while a complete set of positioners makes placing the sensor quick and easy. And, as with all of our sensors, the RVG 6100 sensor is designed to resist shocks, bites, and drops—ensuring maximum durability and a lasting return of investment.
Periapical radiographs are taken to evaluate the periapical area of the tooth and surrounding bone.
For periapical radiographs, the film or digital receptor should be placed parallel vertically to the full length of the teeth being imaged.
The main indications for periapical radiography are:
- Detect apical inflammation/ infection including cystic changes.
- Assess periodontal problems.
- Trauma-fractures to tooth and/or surrounding bone.
- Pre/ post apical surgery/extraction. Pre extraction planning for any developmental anomalies and root morphology. Post extraction radiographs for any root fragments any other co-lateral damages.
- Detect any presence or position of unerupted teeth.
- Endodontics: For any endodontic treatment, a pre-treatment radiograph is taken to measure the working length of the canals and this measurement is confirmed with electronic apex locator. A ‘cone fit’ radiograph is used when Master Apical Cone is placed in wet canal to correct working length to achieve frictional fit apically. Next, obturation verification radiograph is indicated after the canal space is fully filled with master cone, sealer and accessory cones. In the end, a final radiograph is taken after a definitive restoration is placed to check the final outcome of root canal treatment.
- Evaluation of implants :
Intraoral periapical radiographs are widely used for the preoperative procedures, due to its simple technique, low cost and less radiation exposure and widely available in clinical settings.
