Developing x-rays used to be a timely process that involved a dark room full of chemicals and lots of wait time. Once these tiny films were finally developed, their miniature size made communication with the patient quite difficult.
Now, digital radiography entirely eliminates that cumbersome process and is much more environmentally friendly. These days, a tiny sensor placed in the mouth acts like a miniature camera with an x-ray sensitive chip, exposing you to 50%-90% less radiation than with traditional x-ray techniques. The resulting highly detailed image of your mouth is almost instantaneously translated onto our computer screen – carrying with it all the conveniences of other digitized images. We can rotate it, magnify it, adjust it for contrast, and even color-code it for educational purposes. And because it helps our patients clearly understand the root issues behind their dental health, we’re able to work together to determine the very best treatment options for each case.
