Digital x-rays are much faster than traditional x-rays. We are proud to offer our patients a "paperless" environment for faster and more environmentally friendly care.
What are digital x-rays?
Digital x-rays use technologically advanced techniques to store the image of the x-ray in digital format. Digital x-rays are much faster than traditional x-rays.
This results in a quicker, more comfortable experience. Additionally, all digital x-rays are stored in our computer system for easy reference for our team at any point during your visit.
Digital x-rays help us to provide optimal care, earlier detection of any problems, precise monitoring and treatment.
How safe are digital x-rays?
Dental x-rays are very safe by any known standard. While all x-rays will produce a small amount of radiation, digital dental x-rays will produce a much lower level of radiation than traditional x-rays.
Rest assured that our experienced team will put your safety first, taking every precaution to ensure that you are exposed to the least amount of radiation possible.
Why are dental x-rays necessary?
Dental professionals rely on x-rays to view things in your mouth that they cannot see during a visual examination.
X-rays give our dentists the ability to detect problems such as tooth decay, bone damage, and dental injuries, earlier than they would be able to with a visual examination.
How often do I need a digital x-ray?
If an x-ray is recommended, our dental team will tell you during your appointment.
If an x-ray is necessary, it can be taken during the same appointment and the images will be available for our team to examine immediately, resulting in less waiting.
