Digital x-rays are the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. They are fast, comfortable, and efficient in oral health assessment. This technique uses an electronic sensor that captures and stores the digital image on the computer. The image instantly comes up on the computer and can be enlarged and adjusted as needed.
More importantly, digital x-rays require no chemical processing and they emit up to 90% less radiation than the already-low exposure of traditional x-rays!
Your doctor utilizes specific operating microscopes that help make finding small canals and all of the infection much more predictable. Magnification and fiber optic illumination enable the doctor to see minute details inside your tooth. An added benefit of the microscope is that a small camera helps us record images of your tooth to document the findings.
