One way the face of dentistry is changing is through the use of digital technology such as digital x-rays and imaging. Our office uses digital x-rays and imaging on a daily basis to help our patients achieve and maintain happy and healthy smiles.
Benefits of Digital X-rays
Digital X-rays offer many advantages not afforded by traditional X-rays. Digital X-rays may decrease exposure to radiation and are more environmentally friendly because they do not require chemicals or film. Digital X-rays also cut down on appointment times because they can be saved to a computer file and viewed immediately on a computer screen. Computer technology allows digital X-rays to be enlarged, enhanced and measured during the course of an examination. By eliminating the x-ray developing process, digital X-rays allow the doctor to spend more quality time with each patient.
