Witnesses confirm that in the 1930s it was not uncommon to have 3-4 teeth pulled before the offending tooth was finally found. Nowadays, digital X-rays, and the high quality of digital images they produce, prevent this entirely from occuring.
Our practice is equipped with the latest X-ray technology. It generates and utilizes high quality digital X-ray images (small images and panoramic X-rays), which not only allow for a more rapid and accurate diagnosis, but also greatly reduce radiation exposure.
Instead of exposing a film to X-rays (necessitating environmentally harmful processing chemicals for their development), in digital radiography a special sensor converts the incident rays into digital signals.
These are processed by a computer, and the resulting image can then be immediately analyzed and evaluated. Furthermore, the display of the image can be adjusted to expose the smallest details, thus providing the highest level of diagnostic reliability.
