We have been using F-speed films at the University of Pennsylvania for the
last 10 months. The exposure time used is almost half the time required for
D-speed films. We didn't find any negative feedback about detection of
interproximal caries. In fact based on a coin test we found that F-speed
films are less sensitive to faulty safe-light conditions compared to (E+)
films. In addition in the recent NERBs all the students here used F-speed
films and they did not report any problem.
