Digital X-Ray

Traditionally, dentists use x-rays to find out what's going on below the surface, developing them in a darkroom full of chemicals, and examining the resulting films on a special light board. Digital x-rays entirely outmode that cumbersome process.

X-ray sensorNow, a tiny sensor placed in the mouth acts like a miniature digital camera with an x-ray sensitive chip, exposing you to 60%-70% less radiation exposure than with traditional x-ray techniques. The resulting highly detailed image of your mouth is almost instantaneously translated onto our computer screen, carrying with it all the conveniences of other digitized images: we can rotate it, magnify it, adjust it for contrast, and even color-code it for educational purposes. Further, we can store it easily and efficiently in our computer files, eliminating paper files as well as image wear and tear. For insurance purposes, referrals, or patient education, it can be easily, inexpensively and faithfully reproduced any number of times. And because it helps our patients clearly understand the root issues behind their dental health, we're able to work together to determine the very best treatment options for each patient.
