We frequently get asked questions about our digital x-ray system. Here are some facts:

  • It has 90% less radiation than conventional dental x-rays; a full set of radiographs is similar to 2-3 minutes in the sun.
  • We always use a lead shield for our patients, one that has a thyroid collar as part of the coverage to minimize any unnecessary exposure.
  • Radiographs are important to look for bone disease, decay between teeth, and other important landmarks.

Gratefully, the digital x-ray system enables us to be better diagnosticians!
