Our experienced Doctors choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and health of bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. We utilize the latest Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
The advantages of digital imaging enables us to not only store patient images, but also enables us to quickly transfer them to appropriate specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays result
in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Our radiographs (“x-rays”) are stored in our computer system so they are easy to see and will never get lost! Our digital imaging allows for faster, safer x-rays with less radiation exposure to you.
They are also more comfortable than the traditional radiographs taken. Our x-rays save you time in the office as you don’t have to wait on a chemically processed x-ray which takes time to develop and uses messy developing chemicals. Once your x-ray is taken, it’s processed and developed by our computer in minutes.
Our software allows us to view these x-rays and lighten and enlarge areas of concern so our dentists can diagnose a condition more accurately and detect cavities earlier than they could with traditional x-rays.
