We care about our patients’ wellbeing and understand that even something as necessary as dental x-rays can expose them to harm. That is why we have invested in digital x-rays for both oral and panoramic imaging. Digital radiographs reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%! In addition, digital x-rays are better for the environment because they eliminate the need for film development. Instead, your x-rays can be directly stored on our operatory computers for instant evaluation and saved in your records for future comparison.
For panoramic x-ray imaging, the machine stays outside of your mouth and moves around your head. This allows us to get an image of your entire oral cavity as a whole, as well as images of your sinuses, jaw, and neck. This is ideal for checking bone-levels prior to implant placement, evaluations before dental restorations, checking the position of wisdom teeth, and checking for other problems such as abscesses or signs of sinus problems.
