Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
Digital x-rays are an advanced dental imaging system that allows us to take highly detailed images of your teeth and send them directly to a computer for storage. In a matter of seconds, we can view the images on a monitor screen.
Additionally, digital x-rays offer several other advantages over traditional film x-rays. The software allows us to enhance and enlarge the image, which helps us see even the smallest changes, which wouldn't be seen during a visual oral exam.
Since digital images are stored electronically, we can easily send them to a specialist or a new dentist if you move. Digital images are also safer for you because they significantly reduce your exposure to radiation. Finally, digital images are good for the environment since we don’t need to dispose of potentially hazardous materials used with traditional film x-rays.
