AED's (Automated External Defibrillators) in all Dental Offices
Our staff has recently undergone recertification in CPR and use of AED devices
It is estimated that an individual’s chances for survival decreases by 10% for each minute that defibrillation is delayed. Early defibrillation has been shown to be more effective than CPR alone. The national average for survival after sudden cardiac arrest is 5-6% without immediate defibrillation. In metropolitan areas, the survival rates are actually lower, 1-2%, leading many communities to equip first responders with AEDs. Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) programs have raised survival rates up to 60%.
While dental offices are not a site where cardiac arrest is likely to occur, as many people frequent dental offices, the availability of an AED provides additional protection for those in a dental office who may experience an unanticipated cardiac event, regardless of the cause.
Less radiation exposure, A panoramic bitewing study may cut radiation dose by 40% in comparison with intraoral, bitewing X-ray studies.
Intraoral Sensors, Use of the rigid intraoral sensors for periapical (PA) images can be very uncomfortable for patients, especially if they have a shallow palate, narrow palate, tori, or an exaggerated gag reflex.
Features a bitewing program, providing a convenient alternative to traditional intraoral radiographs.
Reliable diagnosis. Perfect consultations. With temporomandibular joint, sinus, bite wing and pediatric panoramic programs, ORTHOPHOS XG 5 makes it possible to make more specific diagnoses in addition to the standard panoramic programs.
