For many years, dentists have used x-rays to assist in the diagnosis of dental problems otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Digital x-rays are quickly becoming the standard in dental imaging. Digital x-rays allow us to get a much better view of your teeth and potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software allows us to see a number of different views of the tooth to gain a better understanding of the proper course of management, make a more accurate diagnosis of your dental needs and to recommend the best treatment options. Digital x-rays provide a great benefit to the patient. Not only are they an excellent diagnostic tool, but they decrease radiation to the patient by over 80% compared to traditional film-type x-ray systems.
