Digital X-rays have a lot of advantages over conventional X-rays. Not only do they use up to 90% less radiation, but they’re faster and more accurate, and patients normally report a better and more comfortable experience. A small sensor takes the images of your mouth and sends them to the computer. These digital images are detailed and exact, providing the best possible basis for diagnosis.
These small, pen-sized cameras offer intense image quality and zoom abilities. This allows us to get the closest possible images of any trouble spots in your mouth, making diagnosis more precise and accurate. Additionally, the patient is able to see the images, which is a terrific way for you to be involved with what’s going on and to better participate in your treatment plan.
Panoramic X-rays are faster and more accurate than traditional X-rays, plus they provide a picture of the entire mouth at once. The pictures can be taken instantly, and are then available immediately for use. Also, the images can be stored on the computer for quick access, allowing the dentist to consult them at a moment’s notice.

Cone Beam CT
We see your teeth and mouth in 3D with Cone Beam CT (CBCT). Would you expect an architect to design your house with a ruler slider? Would you write a book on a typewriter? Never. We are a digital society. Digital x-rays are safer with less radiation. They are instantly developed, and they are much better quality than film x-rays.
