Reduced Radiation, Radical Results
Traditionally, dentists used X-rays to see what the naked eye could not. Film X-rays were developed in a darkroom with hazardous chemicals, and then viewed on a special light board. The developed images had to be stored, which required large filing systems. By far, the biggest downside of traditional X-rays was the radiation exposure to patients. Digital radiography has completely transformed this process.
Now, when you come into the dental office for X-rays, a tiny sensor is placed in your mouth to emit a small amount of radiation - up to 90 percent less than traditional dental X-rays required. This creates a detailed image of your internal oral structures that is immediately viewable on a chairside monitor, carrying with it all the conveniences of other digitized images. We can rotate and magnify it, adjust it for contrast, and even color-code it for educational purposes. The digital images store easily and efficiently in our computer files, safe and sound. For insurance purposes, referrals, or patient education, digital X-rays can be easily, inexpensively, and accurately reproduced.
Digital dental X-rays offer unparalleled benefits over traditional radiographs: they're convenient, safe for the environment, provide a great opportunity for patient education, can be transferred and copied accurately, and best of all, they’re safer for our patients.
