Digital Radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional film. We are able to reduce radiation by 70% over traditional x-rays using this technology. The dosage of x-ray radiation received by a dental patient is equivalent to the dose received during a cross country airplane flight. Incidental exposure is reduced by the use of a lead shield, lead apron, sometimes with a thyroid collar.

Dental radiographs are essential preventative and diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during an exam. Dental radiographs are important in diagnosis and treatment planning. It is possible for both tooth decay and periodontal disease to be missed during a clinical exam, and radiographic evaluation of the dental and periodontal tissue is a critical segment of the comprehensive or examination. Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth.
