What makes digital x-rays so special?
Diagnosing dental problems has always been dependent on using traditional x-ray film. This is still an effective method for detecting problems within your tooth, but digital x-rays provide us with a higher resolution image.
We talk a lot about prevention at our Pelham dental office, and with good reason. With any dental problem, the sooner we can diagnose and treat you, the better the likelihood of stopping disease or decay in its tracks. Our goal is to completely eliminate the problem so that it doesn’t do more damage or reoccur.
Digital x-rays allow us to see even the tiniest problems – those that are not visible on a traditional x-ray film. Obviously, we can’t address problems we can’t see, so digital x-rays have become an extremely important diagnostic tool.
As far as your safety is concerned, we can significantly reduce the amount of radiation you are exposed to when we use digital x-rays. This is primarily due to the fact that we can pinpoint the area to be x-rayed, greatly reducing your exposure.
At Moore Family Dentistry, your safety and comfort are of great importance to us. We stay current with all the latest trends in dental technology and treatment to ensure that we achieve this goal. Please contact our office for more information about digital x-rays and the other technology we use.
