Digital x-rays are the newest technology used in dentistry to take and archive dental x-rays. Digital x-rays significantly reduce the amount of radiation used to obtain the x-ray images as compared to traditional dental x-rays films. Digital x-rays also provide the benefit of immediate viewing of the images area, without the need to use chemical developers. Moreover, digital x-rays allow for digital enhancement of the imaged area which helps the clinician more accurately come to a diagnosis of dental decay and disease. You and you doctor will be able to instantly view your x-rays and enlarge the image to aid in the identification of dental problems and to gauge your dental health.
Taking pictures of the teeth and supporting tissue with a small video camera about the size of a pen is a wonderful addition to dentistry today. The intra-oral camera creates digital images that can be stored in the patient’s electronic health record at Pauly & Tompkins Family Dental Group. The images are shared with our patients so their healthcare can be better understood and interactive. We look forward to showing you a dental tour of your mouth in the privacy of your treatment room.
