Explain the advantages of reusable photostimulable phosphor (PSP) technology in every clinical situation requiring intraoral radiography.
Describe the drawbacks and errors common with use of hard-wired (HW) technology.
Create a streamlined workflow at diagnostic and treatment phases to the advantage of the patient and clinician.
The two main digital intraoral dental radiography (DIDR) choices available for dentists are PSP sensors and HW sensors.
This article focuses on the use of the PSP sensors and their ease of use, greater patient acceptance, superior clinical diagnostics, and minimized radiation exposure in comparison to HW sensors and film radiography.
