X-rays are one of our most valuable diagnostic tools. We recognize that patients often have concerns about dental x-rays and the radiation involved. Your safety is always our number one concern, and that's one of the reasons why we made the switch to digital x-rays. While dental x-rays already used an incredibly low amount of radiation, digital x-rays are able to cut that even further – by about 80%!
Digital x-rays have a number of other advantages as well. They are available for viewing almost instantly, and we can zoom in, enhance, and rotate the image as needed to get a better view and show you what we see. Additionally, they can be stored right in your electronic patient record for easy retrieval and comparison. Plus, the sensor is so much more comfortable than the old x-ray film!
