Compared to traditional X-rays of the past, which took long periods of time to develop, digital X-rays help us capture detailed images of the internal structures of your teeth in significantly less time. Additionally, going digital allows us to dramatically reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to during scans. In fact, we can reduce radiation by as much as 80 percent! We’ll always take the precautions necessary to ensure your safety during scans, whether you’re an older or younger patient.
When a dentist tells you that you need a dental filling, do you ever wish you could see the tooth in question yourself? The fact is you can, with handheld intraoral cameras!
