The Schick CMOS APS sensors require the lowest amount of radiation to acquire dental x-rays on the market. Digital x-rays have been proven to require up to 80% less radiation than standard x-ray films. Schick strictly follows the “ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) Principle” meaning all Schick products are created to ensure the lowest amount of radiation is needed to produce diagnostic images. This ensures that dentists who use Schick sensors in their practice are providing their patients with the healthiest x-ray experience possible.
Additionally, they provide the benefit of immediate diagnostic results, and can be transferred more easily to specialists for second opinions if there are areas of concern; this can help create the best diagnosis in a shorter amount of time.
