What are Digital X-Rays?
Many of our patients have told us that they did not enjoy the traditional x-rays done at most dental offices. Traditional x-rays can be very cumbersome to undergo, can trigger your gag reflex, and may dig into your gums and irritate them.
Fortunately, technology has improved to offer a better solution: digital x-rays. Our cutting-edge in-house x-ray machine can take impressions of your teeth and jaw without the need to insert anything into your mouth. In addition, digital x-rays result in better data, higher resolution, and less radiation, which is best for your overall health.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
X-rays are an important tool used by Dr. Laventure, Dr. Schuyler, and our team to diagnose and treat a variety of dental problems and ensure that important oral health problems don’t go undetected. There are many benefits to using digital x-rays instead of traditional x-rays. They provide an 80 percent reduction in radiation, and completely prevent the need for film or processing chemicals. Images are instantaneous and include color contrast. While the amount of radiation even with traditional x-ray machines is very low, many of our patients appreciate the ability to avoid unnecessary extra exposure to radiation.
