Dental radiographs are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to obtain an image of your teeth. This technique uses a small electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. The result is a highly detailed image which can be instantly viewed and easily enhanced to better diagnose any dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.
Digital x-rays reduce radiation up to 90% when compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
