Every office should have digital x-rays,Â We implemented digital x-raysÂ back in 1997, way before many offices in the area, the office was abeta site and a show case for other Doctors who needed to learn about this technology. now they are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry.
A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
