The Benefits of Digital X-Rays
Dental technology has drastically improved the way that dentists practice their craft. The new technology allows patients to undergo procedures without the time and pain associated with old school dental practices. At Longmeadow Family Dental Care, we are proud to offer the latest technology for our patients. Part of our advanced technology includes the use of digital x-rays. In addition to improving your oral care and overall office experience, digital x-rays provide the following benefits to patients:
Reduces Radiation Exposure
Digital x-ray technology drastically reduces patients’ exposure to radiation. In fact, digital x-rays emit 70-90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. For patients with health concerns or ongoing exposure to radiation, this is critical to their health.
Improves Image Quality
Another brilliant feature of digital x-rays includes the timely manner in which the images are displayed on the monitor. Patient’s dental images can be viewed in three seconds, and display superior quality images without distortion. Additionally, the images are easier to resize into larger or smaller formats, depending on the need – all without distorting the picture or losing important details that the original images hold. For patients, the advanced images help catch potential problems early on and make abnormal or decayed spots clearly visible.
Makes Transferring Dental Records Easier
To assist patients, medical professionals transfer health records between different offices quite frequently. Digital dental x-rays are no exception. Because of the digitization of these images, dentists can instantly share patient’s x-rays with other specialists. The saved time allows patients to pursue treatment options faster and with greater accuracy because of this advanced technology. Digital x-rays are easily transferable with the click of a button.
The advanced technology of digital x-rays saves both dentists and patients time, protects patients from radiation, and helps spot dental complications quickly. At Longmeadow Family Dental Care, we use digital x-rays to provide the best possible care for our patients.
