We all agree to the fact that Digital Dentistry is the future. There is no doubt about it! The digital technologies have already replaced many devices in dentists’ workplaces globally. In India too, the transformation has begun. Dental practitioners have started making the shift towards the digital dentistry. However, being a market going through a transition, there is a hint of confusion amongst some dentists. This confusion is all about what to choose, from where to choose, what are the benefits and what parameters should be kept in mind while finalizing the digital equipment for your practice.
The Available Options
There are many companies offering a variety of Intra Oral Sensors. While comparing the products of various companies, always consider their usability, installation procedures, software details, technical specifications and other minute details that can help you better. Generally, most of us always choose a company which owns the technology and keep on updating it with time and offers instant technical support, whenever required. The physical presence of the Brand you are finalizing is equally important to save time and cost.
Vatech India is one such company which has maintained the top position in the digital Intra Oral Sensor technology in India. Generally, the IntraOral Sensors are available in size 1 and 2, typically suited for children and adults globally. Vatech India is the only company which broke the barrier and manufactured the unique customized size of Intra Oral Sensor. EzSensor Classic IOS, a CMOS Technology intraoral sensor with a unique size of 1.5 and an extra active area of 34% is the largest selling brand as it has filled the gap and now the Dentist gets higher image quality and more convenience. Many Dentists who have migrated from Films to VATECH Digital Intra Oral Sensors have accepted the fact that they can now see more number of patients during the same working hours. It is equipped with EzCodi Consult Software, a two-in-one consultation tool which not only gives accurate impressions of the ailment but with the help of unique feature of Consultation Videos also helps in explaining the patient the further treatment a dentist wants to perform and hence the conversion ratio is higher.
Going a step ahead, Vatech India also developed world’s lightest portable X-Ray. The EzRay Air Portable X-Ray weighs only 1.5 kilograms and does not require to be installed. It is built with world’s first nanotechnology – CNT Tube with 0.4 mm focal spot that is easy to carry and use. Now no more weight lifting during practice with old & heavy x-ray units. The best feature is the “easy positioning”, that offers unmatched convenience – now you need not move your patients – just position the X-Ray and preloaded setting will help you for incisor, premolar & molar settings and you are ready to take the x-ray easily.
Many Dentists have agreed that this is the best combo and are buying the Intra Oral Sensors & Portable X-Ray for effective and more profitable dental practice
Warranty & After-Sale Services
Warranty is one of the most important criteria to select the digital dentistry equipment. Most companies include a limited manufacturer’s warranty with their sensors and offer an extended warranty for an additional fee. Extended warranties vary greatly in terms of what they cover, how long they last, and how much they cost. It is always advisable to get an extended warranty on the sensor. However, the terms and costs, as well as the conditions of these warranties, vary widely. While selecting the product, one must include the warranty cost in the total price of the sensor. Along with that, also compare the terms and conditions regarding the replacements.
The reason why Vatech India cuts the competition way below the mark is, its attractive after-sale services and replacement schemes for its Intra Oral Sensors. Known as Vatech 123SVC, once the customer registers the problem, the company as the first step immediately responds back the same day to solve the issue, if any, through online assistance. If the issue continues, as a 2nd step a site visit is arranged by a technically qualified engineer on the next day. Most of the issues get resolved at this level. Still, if the issue does not get resolved, as the 3rd step the company will replace the equipment… This is certainly a very strong claim in today’s market situation and the level of transparency in keeping the warranty terms is commendable and one of its kind.
Let’s Go Digital!
The criteria for finalizing any digital dental equipment should be divided into two parts. The first part should include all the ‘during-sales’ unique features, benefits, offers and schemes like price, durability, technical aspects, operational ease, output quality and others. On the other hand, and the second important part should include the ‘after-sales’ details & offers which majorly talks about the warranty and after-sale services. In today’s price competitive market and the confusion created by sellers – never compromise on things for your practice. Make sure you consider and compare all the aspects minutely and buy an Intra Oral Sensor that best suits your requirements. All the best!
