Digital X-Rays For Quality Dentistry
Digital x-rays are the new standard for dentistry, and we are proud to offer them in our practice. Rigby Pediatric Dental includes digital x-rays to understand your dental structure thoroughly.
Many patients may have some reservations about getting x-rays. When it comes to parents and their kids, we want everyone to feel comfortable and safe. You can rest assured that digital x-ray technology is entirely safe. It requires less radiation than traditional methods. Less radiation is why digital x-rays are a safer option – they reduce the amount of radiation exposure by up to 90%.
What are Digital X-Rays?
Digital x-rays are standard procedures during routine examinations and dental cleaning. Digital x-rays follow a very similar process to traditional x-rays. A small sensor is placed inside the patient’s mouth that will connect with a camera for a picture of your teeth. As the sensor moves throughout the mouth, we will take individual close-ups and a complete x-ray of the mouth.
What are the Advantages of Digital X-Rays?
The x-ray process is quick and easy and will show up immediately on the screen for the hygienist and dentist to evaluate. Digital x-rays help our team thoroughly assess every tooth, tooth root, and surrounding tissue, including the jawbone. With digital x-rays, we can immediately determine if there are any dental issues.
Digital x-ray images are also more precise than traditional x-ray images and ensure we get all critical details. With digital x-rays, our team can catch even the most minor issues early to prevent more significant problems.
And digital x-rays can easily be stored and managed with your dental record. For example, if we need to forward digital x-rays to a specialist, this is easy to do using email and other modern technology.
