Behind your beautiful smile.
Digital X-ray technology provides a faster and safer way to closely examine your teeth. These X-rays speed treatment and provide a more accurate diagnosis of your teeth. The advancement of digital X-ray technology has meant many advantages over traditional X-rays.
Advantages of Digital Dental X-Rays Include:
- digital X-rays are much faster than traditional X-Rays
- there is much less radiation than traditional X-Rays
- the images can be enhanced for a more thorough diagnosis
- images are stored digitally for easy retrieval and comparison
How does we take digital dental X-rays?
Digital dental X-Rays are faster and arguably more comfortable to take than traditional X-rays! We place a small sensor (in comparison to the bite piece used in traditional X-ray technology)in your mouth which is connected to a computer by a wire. An X-ray beam is then sent through your teeth and surrounding bone. The result records an image and sends it too a computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to capture other sections of your teeth
The images created by digital dental X-Rays appear on a computer monitor allowing us to immediately recognise if we captured the image we need or need to reposition for a different view. The images can be enlarged, enhanced and angled to offer us a better picture of your teeth and their supporting structures.
