75% Reduction in Radiation
Digital X-rays operate with 75% less radiation than traditional X-rays! Not only are you exposed to reduced radiation, but the images are instantly available, of higher quality, and produce no chemical waste. Using a digital sensor, we can capture an image of your mouth and downloaded it into our computer. With the panoramic digital format, we can view your entire mouth in one shot, including your entire upper and lower jaws. This means less time taking pictures and, ultimately, a shorter dental visit.
We are well-pleased to be one of the first practices in our area to use 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology. This is a three dimensional X-ray that is much more accurate than conventional X-rays, takes far less time to create an image, and does this with reduced radiation exposure for you.
Ultra cone beam images vastly improve the dentist’s ability to diagnose our patients and evaluate their treatment options because they can clearly see a patient’s anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.
