A digital x-ray allows our team to take an image of the teeth instantly without having to wait for the development of traditional films. Within our digital imaging program we are able to enhance the film in varying ways to better see the current condition of the teeth. This technology also makes patient education much easier seeing as that the image can be made much larger and clearer for the patient to see and understand. We always strive to have our patients feel apart of their treatment and help them in truly understanding their own dental condition. One of the biggest advantages of digital radiography is that it is about 1/2 the radiation of traditional film. This is due to the fact that the digital version of an x-ray is much more sensitive to the radiation itself, therfore requiring less exposure to the patient, We are proud to utilize this form of technology because it has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
