We are proud to use modern, state-of-the-art equipment in our office at Memorial Avenue Dentistry, including digital radiographs which use less than 50% of radiation dosage traditional X-ray developers.
Instead of the old-fashion X-ray film, digital radiographs use a digital image capture device, the same way your digital camera or iPhone takes pictures. As a result, we can view the images in much shorter time almost instead of waiting for the film to be chemically processed. In addition, the digital radiographs can be enhanced and enlarged so that patients can view the problem areas such as cavities and fractures as well as hidden structures within the bone. Digital radiographs also enhance diagnostic accuracy of problem areas.
In case of dental emergencies, digital radiographs are a significant time saver as in other areas of dentistry.
