Digital Xrays

How Digital X-rays Benefit You

Over the past 60 years science has helped improve the dental profession. Digital radiography is changing the way dentists view dental X-rays. Digital X-rays offer a huge advantage in early detection and preventive services. Advanced image manipulation and analysis, for example, allows your doctor to detect early stages of gum disease through recognition of bone level changes, or by evaluating the results against a previous treatment.

Today’s traditional dental X-rays emit much lower amounts of radiation than in the past and are considered extremely safe, however, digital radiography is a high tech alternative with the following benefits:

  • Uses 90% less radiation
  • Ability to transfer Dental Records by email
  • No chemicals involved, so Environmentally friendly
  • Shorter Dental Appointments
  • Higher quality images
