Digital X-rays for Clear, Accurate Images
Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for Dr. Smith to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done.
Digital X-ray technology also produces up to 75% less radiation than earlier methods. Traditional X-rays are and always have been perfectly safe, but some people were nervous about the amount of radiation they were receiving in the dental office. This new technology greatly reduces this concern. And what’s more, there’s no waiting for the X-ray to develop. Extremely accurate pictures are available instantly and can be stored on the computer, where they will always be available.
