I am committed to offering patients the highest standard of care, so that includes investing in proven technology, such as digital x-rays. A digital x-ray allows me to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow me to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind. The digital x-rays are also more comfortable to have taken than the traditional x-rays.
