Radiography Myth

The common perception is that since digital radiography sensors are thicker than film and rigid they must be uncomfortable for the patient. Actual user experience does not support this.

An online Dentaltown survey found that actual users of both film and digital sensors found no difference in patient comfort.

What about the cord? Here is the secret, The cord has to come out of the patient’s mouth, it can’t go down their throat! If you can master a saliva ejector you can master a corded sensor. The cord is a non-issue.

Vendors who tell you otherwise, that is the digital sensors are uncomfortable and the cord is a problem are lying misinformed.
