The Benefits of Getting Digital Dental X-Rays
- Instant Viewing — As opposed to traditional X-ray film, our digital X-rays do not have a waiting period for development. This means that these X-rays can be viewed immediately to ensure fast and accurate dental care.
Enhanced Diagnostics — Digital dental X-rays provide clear pictures and more information that allows our dental team to diagnose any issues present in the oral cavity. It also allows us to create a customized treatment plan specific to your mouth and your oral needs.
Radiation Reduction — Studies show that digital dental X-rays have a reduction in radiation levels by up to 70% compared to traditional X-rays. This reduction in radiation increases the safety of the equipment and the patients, reducing potential side effects and long-term risks associated with exposure to X-rays.
Crisp and Clear Images — Digital dental X-rays produce high-resolution images that are accurate and contain more information than traditional X-ray equipment does. The use of digital sensors allows our dental team to capture not only images of your teeth but also images of your gums and other oral structures to ensure the best diagnostics possible.
Stored Electronically — Our digital images are stored electronically, making them easily accessible, secure, and saved indefinitely.
Easily Accessible — Digital dental X-ray files are easily accessed and shared electronically for patient use or insurance purposes. They can also quickly be printed for you to keep with your personal records.
Cost-Effective — The use of digital dental X-rays is a great way to detect issues early on, allowing patients to avoid more costly, invasive treatments. Early detection of dental issues saves you time and money in the future.
Enlargement Options — Digital files of X-rays can be enlarged easily, allowing our dental team to see small details that otherwise would not be possible. Traditional X-ray technology only allows for the image to be viewed at its actual size, therefore making it impossible for professionals to zoom in on details.
