Dental x-rays are an essential diagnostic and preventive tool because they allow us to view highly detailed images of your teeth, bone, and surrounding soft tissue.
With x-rays, cavities are visible in their earliest stages when they are still easy to treat. But many patients today are understandably concerned about radiation exposure, so we have invested in state-of-the-art digital x-rays that minimize your exposure by as much as 80%.
Digital x-rays use flat electronic sensors instead of bulky x-ray film, and in just a few moments, we can review the images together on a computer monitor so you can see exactly what the problem is and why treatment is necessary.
In addition to being very safe, digital x-rays are stored on our secure network for quick access as needed for reviewing your history. Since we store the images digitally, they can be sent directly to a specialist or your insurance company. And since we don’t use any chemicals to process digital images, they are safer for the environment than film x-rays.
