Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays allow the dentist to diagnose pathology in the mouth using the least amount of radiation possible and with no need to process films with chemicals. All of the radiographs produced in our office, including panoramic x-rays, are generated using digital technology. Our extra-oral bitewing system is state-of-the-art, enabling us to view a wider area of the mouth than with traditional bitewing x-rays, and with an even lower radiation level than intra-oral digital bitewings. Below we show examples of the dental anatomy we see in our extra-oral radiographs compared to traditional bitewing views. Finally, the fact that digital x-rays require no traditional processing offers an additional benefit for the environment since there is no need for disposal of chemicals for these procedures.
