INTRA ORAL SENSOR TECH TIPS
The cable on a dental sensor is usually the first thing to fail on a sensor. This can be easily avoidable with proper techniques. The first is to not let your patients bite on your sensor cable when it is in their mouths. Having patient repeatedly bite your sensor cable is a sure fire way to cable failure. We usually recommend not saying the word “Bite”, instead say something like “Please, close slowly”. When you say bite patients typically bite with everything they got, which is not good for your sensor cable. When they close slowly make sure the patient is not biting on the sensor cable. If your sensor looks like the one below your dental sensor is going to fail very quickly.
