Digital x-rays give us the ability to take and view x-rays instantly with
minimal exposure to patients and staff. This is a focused beam of X-Ray
particles through bone which produces an image on special film, showing
the structure through which it passed. This gives the familiar black and white
images that doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems. X-rays are a
necessary part of the diagnostic process, and not to use them could lead
to undiagnosed disease. Without an X-ray of the whole tooth, and supporting
bone and gum tissues, there is no real way to detect infection or pathology
that requires attention. We use digital radiography which allows us to
take X-rays using 50-70% less radiation versus conventional X-rays.
Coupled with computer monitoring, digital x-ray technology allows us to enhance
the images for better diagnosis of any dental concerns.
