While most traditional x-rays only offer short, occasional exposure to radiation and are considered to be safe, we do have a commitment to your safety and wellbeing. To ensure that your exposure to radiation is limited, we use digital x-rays every time this high-tech photography is needed for your dental care.
In addition to being safer than traditional film x-rays, digital x-rays are much faster, allowing us to see the results of your x-rays sooner, thus spending more time discussing your treatment options together. We know your time is valuable, so we do our best to make sure that your time in the dental chair is well spent. Our top priority is that you receive the most comprehensive and high-quality care possible, and digital x-rays are just one measure we take to reach this goal.
