Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital x-rays are ultra low in radiation, making them very safe for regular use. Often times children (and adults) with smaller mouths find it challenging to take x-rays. To make things more comfortable for our patients we have several ways to obtain images to ensure a healthy smile.
- Digital sensors – These provide highest resolution images valuable in diagnosis.
- Phosphor plates – Phosphor plates are useful for some patients whose mouths are too small or who are not good candidates for digital sensors.
- External bitewings – These are the images that are the easiest because the patient simply stands still and nothing goes in the mouth!
