Gendex GXS-700™ intraoral sensors are designed to make migrating from film or upgrading a digital system easier than ever.

They are said to deliver brilliant image acuity via the latest in CMOS sensor technology. With more than 20 visible line pairs, the sensor’s high resolution images reportedly elevate diagnostic capabilities.

Two ergonomically designed sizes yield improved patient comfort for adults and children due to rounded corners and smooth-edge finishes. The direct USB connection is said to create ultra-portability and ease-of-use-there are no controller boxes or docking stations. They are said to be manufactured with durable materials and components to increase the life span of the product and were engineered for smooth integration into practice management and many imaging programs.

Q&A with Dr. Parag Kachalia
San Ramon, Calif.

How long have you been using the Gendex GXS-700 sensor?
I have used the GXS-700 sensors in my office for nearly two years now. The sensor was a significant improvement over my prior system. In particular, the GXS-700 sensor works very well within my practice management software.

What are the most important benefits you’ve realized in using the sensor?
The benefits I have realized fall into three major categories:
1. Clarity - While digital radiographs have been around for a number of years, I always felt like I lost a little clarity until the GXS-700 sensor came into my practice. The high-level of clarity has made me very comfortable both from a diagnostic standpoint and in the education of my patients.
2. Size - I have a general practice, and I see patients between 1 and 101 years old. The ability to have two different sensor sizes allows me to predictably take radiographs on my entire patient base in a comfortable manner.
3. Ease-of-use - Today’s dental operatory is very different than it was even 15 years ago. As more technology enters our operatory, we need to be cognizant of simplicity of use. One of the key reasons I decided to incorporate the Gendex GXS-700 sensors is because of the simple USB connection. There was no additional equipment to buy or to travel from operatory to operatory and risk damage.

Why would you recommend this product to a colleague?
I would wholeheartedly recommend this sensor because of image clarity, the multiple sensor sizes, and its ease-of-use. Generally speaking, when you go to a tradeshow, you see various vendors displaying phenomenal radiographic images, and they may not be representative of every captured radiograph. With the Gendex GXS-700 sensors, this “best of the best” image quality is what you will experience in your own office on a daily basis.
