A dental digital X-ray (radiography) system can take a picture of your teeth, then almost immediately shows it to you on a computer monitor while you are in the dental chair.

You no longer have to sit there for fifteen minutes and wait for X-ray film to develop...and develop. The on-screen picture will look like a dental X-ray image but a lot bigger, 400 percent bigger! With one mouse click, your dentist can zoom in on a single tooth, rotate it, sharpen it and colorize it - all to explain your treatment procedure. Want to take home that stunning tooth image? Your dentist can print out a color copy for you.

We place a small, flat sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an X-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.

Why It’s Good:

Your dental checkups take less time. Because the dental Digital X-ray system is more sensitive than dental X-ray film systems, your exposure to X rays is cut as much as 80 percent. (Your dentist and staff receive less exposure, too.)

Your fees don’t include payment for photographic chemicals, film, processing or film storage.

Used photo chemicals and film are not dumped into the environment.

Finally, it’s a blast to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.
