Digital Radiograph (X-Rays)
The doctors will carefully choose when and which radiographs are needed. There are many guidelines that we follow in our office. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and monitor the health of bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Our office solely utilizes digital imaging technologies to ensure the lowest radiation dose and most accurate x-rays. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital x-rays result in one-sixth the radiation exposure to the patient. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information, which will help us better serve our patients.
The advantages of digital imaging enable us to not only store patient images, but also enables us to quickly transfer them to appropriate specialists or insurance companies.
