Dental X-rays Machines

With today’s advancement in digital dental x-rays systems, radiation dosage exposure to patients is now dramatically reduced to extermely low levels compared to conventional film x-rays. Digital dental x-rays not only benefits the patient safety but enables clearer and sharper images.

At BIDC dental clinic, we are fully equipped with our own CT Scans, dental x-ray machines and in-house film processor. All our dental clinics uses digitalized technologies without the need for any chemical base film development. This enables our patients get diagnosis results instantly. Dentists can draw up treatment plan effectively in one visit.

1. Digital 3D Computerized Technology Scan

Bangkok International Dental Center (BIDC) is the first dental clinic in Thailand to utilize the ProMax 3D CT Scans by Planmeca. The ProMax is designed to obtain complete information on patient anatomy. Its 3D concept is an intelligent and multipurpose x-ray unit with designs to obtain complete information on patient anatomy in the minutest detail. The dental x-rays units provide digital panoramic, cephalometric and 3D imaging. Its advanced imaging software tools comply with almost every possible thought-out need in dental radiology.

Planmeca ProMax 3D imaging is ideal for imaging of small details. The 3D concept covers the whole dentition area and captures the whole maxillofacial region.

2. Digital Panoramic and Cephalometric X-ray Machines

Aside from having 3D CT scan, BIDC dental clinic also uses digital specialized panoramic and cephalometric x-ray from Planmeca’s Promax range. The Promax 2D dental x-rays machines gives high quality images, facilitates ease of operation and provides a wide range of exposure similiar to its 3D counterparts.

Using vertical segmenting, the exposed area is limited only to the area of diagnostic interest. With simple selection, patient’s radiation dose can be reduced by up to 80% compared to a full area panoramic exposure. This is highly advantageous on patient safety. And reduces radiation by limiting part of the jaw for cases where a follow-up image is required.

Advantages of digital imaging :

  1. Direct digital dental x-rays saves time as images appear on-screen within seconds after the exposure and are immediately available for diagnosis anywhere in the practice network
  2. Imaging process is not sensitive to external factors like film based imaging. Since film, film processing and darkroom are no longer needed, the most common reasons for image retakes are eliminated.
  3. Digital images can be enhanced in imaging software. This brings new opportunities in diagnostics and allows adjustment of the image darkness and contrast if they are not optimal in the original image.
  4. Digital archives and networks enable efficient image communications. Electronic image copies are of original quality and thus the heghest qualtiy image is always available for diagnostics and consultation

The Planmeca Dimax digital imaging system is based on the latest CCD technology. It provides digital radiographs of high diagnostic quality. A triple laser beam system accurately indicates the correct anatomical positioning points.

Transtomography is a new digital imaging system developed by Planmeca. Transtomography uses multiple sweep method whereas the linear tomography uses one sweep. Transtomography combines the translation movement with an oscillation movement where the center of the rotation moves over the region of intrest. The layer thickness can be adjusted like in film based linear tomography. Due to the developed imaging method, the image of the anatomies are truthful and information maximized.

3. Digital Intra-Oral X-ray Machines

Our dental clinics uses intraoral dental x-rays machines from Aceton. Intra-oral x-rays are small x-rays sometimes called pericipal x-rays. It is commonly taken during root canal treatment or when your dentist requires a zoom in view of a specific area.

The X-mind intraoral x-ray machines from Aceton is famous for being bullet proof. It is an intraoral unit that provides simple and fast slide x-rays. This enables our dental specialists to make proper treatment diagnoses quickly and instantly.

Aceto’s intra-oral dental x-rays allows the reduction of a patient’s exposure to radiation. Its has a microprocessor that allows tooth type and patient size inputs to determine time values and control radiation dose reduction when using digital receptors. Automatic time correction device corrects the exposure time automatically according to the voltage oscillations in the electrical power source. Thus it keeps the radiation levels steady.

The cutting edge patented ACE technology enables what no other x-ray system has been able to reach so far.This intraoral system has an exclusive advantage in that the X-Mind unity communicates with the ACE technology present in the sensor SOPIX inside. The latter analyzes in real time the amount of x-ray emission needed to enable perfect exposure of the image as well as patient dose reduction. The result is always an optimal image and until 50 % of saved radiation according to the patient morphology.

4. Digital Intra-Oral Film Processor

BIDC uses digital intra-oral film processors to develop its x-ray imaging plates with:

  • VistaScan from Durr Dental
  • Sopro PSPix and Sopix from Aceton


The VistaScan Mini image plate scanner is an award-winning image plate diagnostics unit. The plate scanner enables faster processing. Dentists at BIDC uses this compact device for x-ray and scanning directly at the chairside that allows full flexibility on image formats.

Thanks to PCS technology, the Germany-made VistaScan Mini can reliably resolve and show caries lesions down to minute details. The unit provides rapid image availability in just 6 seconds on in the direct vicinity of the patient. Its thin, flexible image plates provides patients with a more pleasant and comfortable experience thanks to their special coating.

PSPix and Sopix

PSPIX is a new digital imaging plate system that is thin and flexible with an active area optimized to 100%. PSPix has four sizes of imaging plate with a automatic readout process of 4.3 sec.

Sopix dental x-rays integrates the best of modern technology. The ACE technology is a Sopro exclusive process that makes it possible to control the amount of x-rays accumulated by the sensor. ACE technology is integrated in all SOPIX series sensors. It analyzes in real time the amount of x-rays accumulated by the sensor and freezes the image acquisition as soon as it received the radiation required to provide a good-quality image. Thus, it protects each image from overexposure. In order to improve patient comfort, the corners of its sensor are rounded for easier placement inside the mouth.

The integration of SOPIX inside sensor into the X-Mind’s intraoral x-ray system and combined ACE technology allows a unique worldwide communication. This solution stops the x-ray emission to minimize patient exposure. The patient only receives the necessary dose adapted to their dental morphology. ACE technology reduces the patient’s dose by up to 52% as compared to a standard exposure. Through this unique data transfer between SOPIX inside and X-Mind unity system, the dose received by the patient is now traceable and is a revolutionary technology in intraoral radiology.

Sopix combined with PSPIX the digital imaging plate system makes intra-oral imaging at BIDC dental clinics easier and more efficient.
