Technology Wins in Dental X-Rays

Does your dentist use digital dental x-rays? Despite the enormous increase in cost, a common trend in dentistry has been the switch from conventional film x-rays to digital dental x-rays. The innovation and advanced technology involved in a digital dental x-rays are a win-win for both dentists and patients.For patients, the benefit of a digital dental x-ray is monumental as it refers to your safety. Digital x-rays can reduce radiation exposure during a necessary dental x-ray by up to 80 percent. This makes your radiation exposure extremely minimal, as conventional film x-rays were already revised to produce low amounts of radiation for patient safety. Both patients and dentists can also enjoy other advantages of digital dental x-rays such as their ease of use, accuracy of image, and streamlined storage and filing.

With digital dental x-rays, dentists can now use color contrasting for even more accuracy, a feature that was not an option with conventional films. Technology allows a clear, precise image of your teeth for dentists to make a more accurate diagnosis from. The digital dental x-ray is instantaneously viewable to dentist and patient and easily stored in an electronic chart or shared with another specialist.

A dental practice that has made the switch from conventional methods in film x-rays to the innovative digital dental x-ray will love the low maintenance involved. Dental staff can give more time with patients rather than worrying about stocking a supply of x-ray film or processing chemicals. In addition, the digital dental x-ray system is so easy to use, that it can be mastered with limited training.

Gilreath Family Dentistry has realized these important advantages in using digital dental x-rays for both patients and our dental practice efficiency. We proudly offer the latest in dental technology such as digital dental x-rays to our patients as a standard of our high quality dental care.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
