Patients will appreciate 30% less radiation* with DEXshield. DEXshield is a unique dental X-ray position indicating device and a patented patient protective shield. When used during the dental radiologic procedure, it aligns the X-ray beam with the examination site and provides an attenuating barrier to protect the patient from unnecessary radiation exposure. DEXshield also helps optimize your clinical workflow by reducing the number of accessories needed. DEXIS has created DEXshield as a true all-in-one positioning ring which allows you to capture both periapical and bitewing radiographs. DEXshield is designed exclusively for use with the DEXIS Platinum Sensor. *In a laboratory setting, DEXshield plus the DEXIS Platinum Sensor was determined to reduce absorbed dose by at least 30% as compared to the Universal Ring plus the DEXIS Platinum Sensor. DEXshield Indications for Use: DEXshield is a dental X-ray position indicating device and a patient protective shield. It is intended for dental radiographic purposes to align the examination site with the X-ray beam and to protect the patient from unnecessary radiation exposure during radiologic procedures by providing an attenuating barrier to radiation.
