Digital X-rays minimize exposure of radiation to patients and our dental staff. The image is converted into digital formation within seconds enabling you to view your X-rays without delay. A digital X-ray is a high quality image that can be adjusted for optimal diagnostic quality. For your convenience they can also be e-mailed directly to an oral surgeon or an endodontist’s office.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of 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 nearly 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.
