Spokane Digital Dental X-Rays
A Safer and Faster Dental X-Ray
An X-ray is a vital aspect of a routine dental exam. For the most part, they should be taken annually (at the very least) in order to keep dental records updated. They offer more thorough diagnoses and/or help to improve coordination of specific treatments. In our clinic, a digital x-ray is used to streamline each patient’s visit and offer imaging of high quality in a comfortable and quick manner.
Digital X-Ray Benefits
- Clear images of x-rays – a digital x-ray will offer higher levels of clarity and detail, much more so than conventional x-rays that are film based. As such, your images will be a lot simpler to read, problematic areas will be easier to pinpoint, and treatment can be planned more accurately.
- Reduced exposure to radiation – traditional x-rays are reliant on procedures that are film-based. In other words, images need to be chemically developed, just like photographs. Contrarily, a digital image can be produced without any need for equipment like that. This allows us to have x-rays captured with reduced radiation exposure – by as much as 90% in some cases!
- More customized care – a digital x-ray is usable for a variety of treatments. When exploring your images on a chairside monitor, we’ll explain oral health requirements to you, allowing you to make better and more personalized choices about treatments.
- Earlier doses that are more accurate – a digital x-ray is much more clear, and can be magnified for the sake of focusing on specific oral structure areas. This lets us isolate early signs of problems like jawbone degradation, tooth decay, and other serious issues well before they become much more severe.
