What are the benefits of digital x-rays?
Digital x-rays significantly reduce the amount of radiation exposure to our patient's, usually by 70-80%. With this new technology, we are able to enhance, enlarge or refine the images. Digital x-rays are stored in our electronic database which allows us to easily retrieve them and share them with specialists, should the need arise. Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage with regular scheduled x-rays can save time, money and unnecessary discomfort. Radiographs can help your dentist detect problems in your mouth that otherwise would not be seen, such as small areas of decay, infections, gum disease, some types of tumors or abnormalities in development.
