Digital x-rays are stored digitally, allowing us to access your files easily on a screen at the chair during your dental appointment.
Why use digital x-rays?
Digital x-rays provide a highly accurate picture of your whole mouth because they make it possible to enlarge specific areas. This allows your dentist to see everything in much greater detail, and better understand your oral health needs. Digital x-rays allow us to detect problems earlier, which can prevent issues from getting worse.
Are digital x-rays safe?
The levels of radiation produced by digital x-rays are substantially lower than in traditional x-rays. For this reason, they are considered completely safe.
We will take every precaution during your appointment and answer all your questions, to make sure that you feel at ease during your x-ray.
How often do you need an x-ray?
If you need an x-ray during your appointment, we will let you know. Depending on the condition of your teeth and your oral health needs, you may need an x-ray every six months, or only yearly, or even every couple of years.
