Digital Radiography (X-Rays)
Digital radiography (x-rays) is one of the most valuable types of technology we use. The precise images produced with this equipment allow us to look for and detect cavities existing between teeth and to see problems that may be developing below the gum line. The process is faster and easier than traditional x-rays, and the digital images can be enhanced and viewed on a monitor next to your chair so you can see exactly what it is we see.
Some of our patients have expressed concern about the radiation exposure involved with x-rays. Our digital radiography is a type of imaging that uses digital x-ray sensors in place of traditional x-ray films. Most importantly, digital x-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
