Digital x-rays help in the diagnosis and treatment of many dental procedures. They illustrate bone height, bone defects, infection, root involvement, tartar, tooth decay and more. Digital x-rays are also beneficial in determining if gum disease is progressing or if arrested.
A digital x-ray allows for quick on screen reference to facilitate your understanding of any areas of concern. As well, digital x-rays allow for minimal exposure time with 80% less radiation than normal x-rays.
Digital x-rays are scanned into our computer, allowing for the images of your teeth, supporting bone and gums to be large and crisp, stored in your file for future reference. Digital x-rays are faster, safer and environmentally friendly.
