Suni sensors require least amount of radiation to capture diagnostic images
The SuniRay Digital Radiography System—designed and manufactured here is the U.S.A.—was shown in a recent evaluation to require the lowest radiation to capture a diagnostic-quality dental x-ray. With the concept of ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Acheivable) and recent clinical studies linking dental-x-rays to health concerns, using equipment specifically designed for low-radiation exposure is becoming more and more of a requirement for dental practitioners globally.
The recent study by the CR Foundation in Provo, Utah, showed the SuniRay System to be very sensitive to radiation exposure meaning that it required the least radiation dosage to produce a useful image. “In most cases, the amount of radiation to which patients are exposed is minimal, and everyday sun exposure delivers radiation to people that they are not even aware of, but, regardless of that fact, safety to patients continues to be a critical aspect in dentists selecting equipment to outfit their practices, said Paul Tucker, CEO of Suni.
The SuniRay System is designed with patient safety in mind. The different components of the Suni sensor and Suni’s proprietary sensor technology are married together in such a way that radiation is minimized providing a safer environment for both staff and patients. “This is the basis of Suni sensor development,” continued Tucker. “Suni’s combination of sensor pixel size, scintillator and fiberoptic technologies, a piece of everything so to speak, provides a diagnostic quality product that continues to rate high in the safety category.”

RACINE, WI – Science has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated. Acoustic streaming and cavitation of endodontic solutions has been shown to significantly enhance cleansing of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient in creating acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
EndoUltra™ is the only cordless, compact, battery operated piezo ultrasonic (40kHz) activation device. Only EndoUltra™ is capable of producing acoustic streaming and cavitation in small canal spaces, resulting in significantly improved debridement, disruption of biofilm, improved penetration of irrigants into dentinal tubules, and the removal of vapor lock. Resulting in improved outcomes.
