We converted our imaging system to intra-oral Kodak sensors which provides superior, detailed X-rays at 70% less radiation than the conventional X-rays.
Lead aprons with thyroid collar are used to protect the patient. As well all the X-ray units come with a cone to focus the x-ray beam to minimize the scatter of the radiation.
Other benefits of Digital X-rays:
- The X-ray is processed right away and available to view.
- The image can be enhanced for better diagnosis
- The images are stored in the computer and can be retrieved and reviewed easily.
- The images can be enlarged to better detect cavities and other abnormalities.
At our office we only take X-rays that are absolutely necessary to diagnose any problems.
