Phosphor plate imaging brings various advantages with it; the most obvious is, of course, the price point advantage. Phosphor plate dental radiography sensor replacements will typically require one scanner per office, priced in the range of $5,000 – $8,000, plus reusable plates in the range of $25-40.
Phosphor plates will provide images that can be digitally enhanced, magnified, and reviewed with your patients. These images can also be easily printed and if need be sent to another dental specialist. Phosphor plate dental radiography technology also allows for larger imaging area when compared to hard sensors. The elimination of wire allows the patients to bite down more closely, this permitting a more accurate image of their bone and supporting structures to be captured.
