Digital dental x-rays play a crucial role in accurate diagnosis of many common dental concerns. Often, long before a problem becomes visible to the naked eye, it can be seen on an x-ray. This is particularly true of decay, infections, cysts, and damage to the bone structure caused by periodontal disease.
We want to identify and treat problems as quickly as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment usually means much simpler and more conservative treatment, something we think everyone can appreciate!
Digital x-rays use up to 90% less radiation than dental x-rays and feature a number of other impressive benefits, as well:
- More comfortable sensors
- Almost instant development
- The ability to zoom in, highlight, and magnify images for improved diagnosis and patient education
- Storage within your digital file for fast retrieval and comparison
- No chemicals required for developing
If you have any questions about the use of x-rays in your care, we encourage you to call our office!
