Our practice utilizes only digital x-ray technology, which is becoming the standard for the dental profession. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and view it in an imaging program almost instantly. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital x-ray sensor is much more sensitive to this radiation than film, and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
