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 Dental Associates 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.
