Until recently, our only option when taking X-rays was to place a film packet in your mouth and, using a traditional dental X-ray machine, expose the film packet, then wait up to 10 minutes for it to develop. With digital radiography, the process is computerized.
How Does It Work?
We placed a sensor next to your tooth, and within seconds your X-ray is displayed in sharp, vivid detail on a computer screen. Because of this short exposure time, the amount of X-ray raditation is reduced by as much as 90%.
An Efficient, Computerized Process
Once the X-ray image is on our computer screen, we can enhance it to make a more precise diagnosis. We can save images on our computer for instant retrieval, and once they're digitized, we can easily send them to insurance companies or specialists, as needed.
