Digital X-Rays

One of the most exciting developments in the 21st Century is the maturation of digital technology.  Digital technology is used in many places in our office but the one that is greatest benefit to the patients is that of digital dental x-rays. 

    X-rays were discovered by Roentgen in the late 19thCentury and within a year of their discovery they were in use by the dental world.  X-rays allow us to see things that are buried by your gums, lips and jawbone.  With our “x-ray vision” we can detect problems long before they become painful.  Thus, we can fix teeth before the problems become more extensive and therefore more expensive.

For years this process required a fairly long (0.7 sec or longer) exposure to radiation.  With the advent of digital xrays-the exposure is cut up to 90%.   There are other advantages.  Should you move we can forward your xray images anywhere in the world-or give them to you on a thumb drive or other external medium.  The digital images can also be enhanced to allow better interpretation.  To us the fact that we get a good image in less than 1 sec after exposure is a great help.   Our patients probably appreciate the drastic reduction in radiation exposure.
