Digital X-Ray


Digital x-rays are a technilogically advanced system versus "films" in the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind. We tell many of our patients that you receive more radiation staying outdoors exposed to 15 minutes of sunshine. 


Some of the many advantages of  digital technology include:

*Dramatically reduced exposure to radiation.

*Instant digital photos of the tooth and/or teeth.

*Comprehensive analysis of current dental health.

*Ability to dulplicate via email to referring Dentists and/or Oral Surgeons at no cost to the patient.
