We believe in taking x-rays only as needed for diagnosis or when warranted. We understand patient’s concerns regarding x-ray exposure, and as such, we have been using digital technology for the past decade in our practice. The software and images which result has benefits to both us for the diagnosis and to you the patient in that there is less radiation exposure.
Because of the need for images in dentistry, the advantage to you is a decrease in radiation exposure of 70-90%, relative to traditional dental x-rays. We are able to get instant images which allows for more patient care time and quicker diagnosis. These images can be enlarged way beyond the size of traditional x-rays which allows us to see much more detail and results in better and earlier diagnosis as well as better results in our work. Finally, it is better for the environment as we have eliminated the film and chemicals used in traditional films.
