Our office is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most efficient treatment options available. We utilize advanced digital x-ray technology, which decreases your exposure to radiation by up to 90% compared to traditional x-rays. In addition to the traditional 2-dimensional digital x-rays, we are also able to take highly accurate, low radiation 3-dimensional digital x-rays using our state-of-the-art cone beam CT (computed tomography). Unlike 2-D x-rays, 3-D x-rays allow us to see the teeth as well as surrounding gum and bone structures from every angle – especially important when we are treating roots canals and placing dental implants.
Once the x-rays are taken, they are quickly displayed in your personal electronic chart. Digital x-rays also provide the added benefits of a clearer image that is able to be magnified up to the size of computer screen so that we can form a more accurate diagnosis as well as display the x-rays for you to see as well.
