Digital X-rays are one of the greenest innovations in the dental office. Besides reducing radiation to the patient by a whopping 75%, there are no chemicals to dispose of. That’s right!!! No fixer. No developer. Digital X-ray systems (we use Dexis) come with a sensor that takes the X-ray image that it captured and sends it to the computer. The image is available within seconds. These images can help the dentist to diagnose cavities, fractures, abscesses, periodontal (gum) disease and root canal problems.
Digital X-rays have changed the way we practice dentistry. Digital X-rays have made it far easier to be efficient and to fully treat our patients. Digital X-rays are a win-win for both patient and doctor. Our office has both the intraoral (in the mouth) Digital X-rays and the extraoral (outside the mouth, panorex) Digital X-rays.
