How can Digital X-rays improve my dental health?
Some of the most serious dental issues can’t be seen with the naked eye. For example, the underlying structures that support the teeth and gums are crucial for good oral health, but they are susceptible to a number of issues. Digital X-ray technology allows us to obtain the safest, most detailed images of your entire mouth to keep a check on these structures.
Digital X-rays reveal much more than traditional X-rays. We can sharpen, alter or zoom in and out from the image. Digital X-rays can even clearly show the details of small spaces, such as the canals in the roots of the teeth. As a result we are better able to diagnose and treat a wide range of dental health issues.
Our patients are also happy to learn that Digital X-rays expose them to far less radiation — as much as 90 percent less than conventional x-rays. Clearly this is a significant decrease. Digital X-rays are also more environmentally friendly, as they do not use chemicals to fix images on film like traditional X-rays.
Because of our commitment to advanced technologies like Digital X-rays, dentist should be able to provide a patient experience that is continually improving in terms of quality of care, length of treatment and degree of comfort.
