Gendex Digital X-rays
Digital x-rays not only expose our patients and staff to 90% less radiation than typical x-rays, they are also more sensitive than traditional dental x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to clearly see the entire tooth and root structure as well as the surrounding bone and tissue. They give us the opportunity to detect and diagnose issues before they are visible to the naked eye, and before they can cause significant damage and pain.
To obtain an x-ray, a small sensor connected to a computer is placed in the mouth. A beam is then sent through your teeth to the sensor that records the images immediately. The doctors and staff can pull up the digital x-rays on a computer screen to review the results and recommended treatment to you.
