Digital X-Rays

Digital dental x-rays are used to provide even better dental care and more accurate diagnoses. The process of digitally capturing an image is much faster, safer and more comfortable for you.

We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an x-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.

The digital dental x-ray system is more sensitive than traditional dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to x-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. The large and color-enhanced images let you see what the doctor sees, so it’s easier for you to understand how your teeth will be treated, and why. Your fees don’t include payment for photo chemicals, film, processing or film storage. Used photo chemicals and film are not polluting the environment, and your dental checkups take less time.
