We use the latest digital X-Ray technology because we care about our patients and the environment. They emit approximately 90% less radiation than conventional X-Rays, about the same amount as standing outside for ten minutes. There is also no need for toxic chemicals to develop the X-Rays and then dispose of.
In addition to the safety of this technology, we like that the images are reviewable instantly. We can sit down next to a patient and show them a highly detailed picture on a nearby screen helping them see exactly what’s going on in their mouth. Any cavities or other potential problems are clearly visible and the necessary treatment reviewed on the spot.
We also use a hi-resolution intraoral camera to capture images of problem areas, such as enamel fractures and hidden small cavities. We then use the photos comparatively, to show our patients their stages of improvement in six-month increments. The technology available to us has never been as safe or as useful for both doctors and patients alike.
