Enhanced Digital X Ray Imaging

What Are Digital X-Rays?

A Digital x ray or radiograph is very important. It allows the dentist to see things about your oral health that cannot be seen by the naked eye. These items include cysts (sacks of fluid that form on the roots of teeth), cancerous and non-cancerous tumors, invisible decay that occurs between teeth, and the location of teeth that haven’t grown all the way in.

How Does a Digital X Ray Help?

By using a digital x ray to diagnose these problems, we can help save you money in the long run from surgeries or other treatments that might become necessary if we didn’t find the problem. In some cases, where dental x rays show the location of tumorous growths, x rays can be responsible for saving your life.

Benefits

Digital x rays have many advantages when compared with old-fashioned film-based machines, including:

  • Reduced radiation exposure (up to 90% less than traditional systems)
  • Enhanced ability to refine image quality
  • Instant viewing (no waiting for films to develop)
  • Environmentally friendly (no toxic chemicals)

Best of all, it’s easy for you to see what the doctors see. Your digital x ray can be seen on a computer screen located next to your dental chair. This helps you understand your needs and make and informed choice about any treatment.
