Digital X-rays: Faster, Safer, and More Comfortable

Digital X-rays are the latest technology in dental imaging techniques. Digital X-rays create color images of specific teeth or panoramic images of the entire set of teeth. This new state-of-the-art technology reduces your exposure to X-rays by up to 90%! Because digital X-rays can be saved and stored in a computer, present and prior images can be digitally compared to show even the subtlest changes, allowing you to receive treatment before small problems become bigger.
Digital X-rays are quick and comfortable. A small sensor device is placed in your mouth. The device is connected to a computer that instantly creates colored X-ray images on a monitor. In seconds, you see the same clear color X-ray that your dentist sees. The device can be moved and placed in different areas of your mouth to create images of specific teeth. Faster, safer, and more comfortable—digital X-rays have revolutionized the dental care visit.
