All Digital X-Ray Imaging


Digital x-ray imaging, or digital radiography, is a form of x-ray imaging where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of photographic film. Images are available immediately and images can be colorized, magnified or examined for density to further assist the doctor in getting an overall picture of the current state of your teeth, mouth and jaw. Digital x-rays can also reduce the radiation exposure to our patients, and are therefore the safest and most effective means of diagnosing a patient in order to ensure they receive the treatment they need.

We have also added a new 3D Cone Beam CT, or CBCT. This allows us to examine the teeth, jaws, joints, and airways in 3D format which in turn enables us to diagnose at the optimum level. The CBCT offers a very low dose of radiation that ensures patient safety while providing more diagnostic data to help each patient adhere the best care.
