Digital X-Rays


THE BENEFITS OF DIGITAL X-RAYS


We use only digital x-rays which produce better results with much lower exposure.  We offer two digital systems: intraoral and panographs.  These advanced forms of radiography have 50-90% less radiation than conventional film-based x-rays. The images appear instantaneously on the computer monitor allowing us to immediately review the images and discuss findings with you.


ARE X-RAYS REALLY NECESSARY?


X-rays are necessary to detect decay between teeth and areas not visible to the naked eye. Since gum and bone problems happen slowly over time, they are often not felt or detected from the surface. X-rays are also necessary for detecting bone loss and infections at root surfaces.
