We offer advanced Digital X-Rays and imaging to identify and diagnose potential issues before they become bigger problems.
Our high-tech imaging tools use a minimal and safe amount of radiation, are environmentally friendly, and allow Dr. Patel to clearly identify, diagnose, and resolve problem areas.
Dental X-rays (radiographs) are images of your teeth that your dentist uses to evaluate your oral health. These X-rays are used with low levels of radiation to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. This can help your dentist to identify problems, like cavities, tooth decay, and impacted teeth.
Dental X-rays may seem complex, but they’re actually very common tools that are just as important as your teeth cleanings.
Benefits of using digital dental x-ray images, including:
When the digital x-ray image is exposed, it can be sent directly to a computer and viewed right away. For x-ray film to be exposed, a staff member must process it in special chemicals. This takes a few minutes.
Digital x-ray images can be enlarged on the computer screen. This makes it much easier for you and the dentist to see the pictures. Traditional x-ray films are viewed as actual size.
Digital x-ray images can often be corrected without having to make another x-ray exposure.
The dental office can print or copy your digital x-ray images. They can also be sent electronically to insurance companies, which may help claims get processed faster.
Digital x-rays are environmentally friendly. They eliminate the need for film and film processing chemicals.
Digital x-ray images may require less radiation.
