Digital Dental X-Rays
X-rays are an integral part of the preventive dentistry we provide. While many patients have concerns about radiation, with the use of digital x-rays, those concerns are unnecessary. Digital dental x-rays emit up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Many studies show that you will have more radiation exposure simply by spending time outside.
The images we capture using digital technology provide high-resolution images for Dr. Bussell to review. He can zoom in, adjust contrast and exposure, and compare images to past x-rays on the treatment room monitors.
As an added benefit, digital x-rays are friendlier to the environment, eliminating the need to develop film with harmful chemicals.
