One of the most important parts of pre-assessment for any dental procedure is getting a dental x-ray. This enables the dentist to reliably diagnose cavities. By providing digital x-rays, we offer our patients all the benefits of a dental x-ray, but without the massive amounts of radiation that is usually associated with it.
Digital x-rays are so sensitive that they can reveal conditions not observable with traditional x-rays, and images are immediately available so the dentist can assess and diagnose quickly, decreasing waiting time. The best thing about digital x-rays is not only that they give the dentist a great amount of insight into the patient’s oral structure, but they do not expose the children to high levels of radiation in the process. With digital x-rays, there is a staggering 99% less radiation reading compared to their original counterparts.
