Gain An In-Depth Look At The State Of Your Oral Health With Digital X-Rays
While dental x-rays have played a vital role in dentistry for many years (film x-rays were invented in 1895), modern technology has had an incredible impact on this reliable diagnostic tool.
What benefits do digital x-rays provide?
Providing clear and in-depth images of your teeth and jaw, digital x-rays help dental professionals diagnose and effectively treat developing oral health issues. They also enable dentists (and patients!) to see x-ray results quickly, and because they’re digital, images can be stored easily.
In addition, digital x-rays emit between 70% and 90% less radiation than film x-rays, making them a much safer option for patients. They are also easier on the environment due to the fact that the toxic chemicals required for film processing – as well as the plastic waste caused by producing images – are no longer utilized. Digital x-rays are also more comfortable for patients as the digital sensor is smaller and easier to place in a patient’s mouth.
Overall, digital x-rays provide many benefits for dentists and patients alike. If you suspect you may benefit from a digital x-ray for a dental concern you’re experiencing or if it’s been more than six months since your last examination, call us today. We’ll be happy to arrange a visit that suits your schedule!
