RVG 6100 and Logicon
DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY AND CARIES DETECTION SOFTWARE BENEFIT PATIENTS AND PRACTICES
When it was time to purchase a new digital radiography system for my practice 10 years ago, I took my time to study every system on the market. Because I wanted a system that would best benefit my patients, I chose Carestream Dental's RVG 6100 system along with Logicon Caries Detector software.
Improved Patient Understanding and Time Savings
When diagnosing a patient and explaining treatment options, it is imperative to obtain a quality image in a short amount of time. Using a digital radiography system, we no longer have to wait for film to develop, and sharp, clear images are instantly available on the operatory monitors. Patients can understand their diagnosis better when they can see their problem on a 24-inch monitor rather than a 2-inch piece of film.
When I tried Carestream Dental's Logicon Caries Detector software in 2003, I immediately wanted to integrate it into my practice. Since then, Logicon software has only improved—it finds caries in places I would not have even suspected.
From the time I start treatment to the time treatment is completed, I document every patient's case through images. I take a picture of the tooth before beginning a filling, a picture inside the tooth during the treatment to show the decay, a picture after all decay has been removed from the tooth, and a final picture of the tooth after treatment. My goal is to be as thorough as possible, and Logicon software has only helped me to become a better practitioner. I've never had a false positive with the software, and I feel more confident in determining treatment plans for my patients.
