At Spring Dental Arts, we always strive to remain at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and innovation in order to deliver the best dental care to our Spring, TX area patients. One of the most commonly used tools in our office is the digital x-ray machine, which has many benefits for both our dental care team and our patients.
Traditional x-ray machines would capture images on x-ray film. However, digital x-rays machines employ the use of electronic sensors to capture and store digital images electronically. Also known as digital radiography, digital x-rays have several benefits over their traditional counterparts.
While traditional x-rays would only expose our patients to a minor dose of radiation, the radiation exposure with digital x-rays is reduced by nearly 90 percent.
The instantaneous image transfer from the electronic sensors to the computer allows our dentists to view you x-rays right away. By viewing your films on the computer, you and your dentist can zoom in on problem areas, making the diagnostic procedure much more efficient.
The disposal of x-ray film is harmful to our ecosystem. By going digital, Spring Dental Arts is not contributing to the excess waste and contamination in our environment.
Digital x-rays are used every day in our high-tech office. For every routine dental exam and checkup, digital x-ray images are taken so your dentist can uncover important information about the health of your gums, teeth, and jaw that cannot otherwise be seen by looking inside the mouth. More accurate and effective treatment plans are executed with the images captured by our digital x-rays.
If any of the following issues are developing beneath the gum line, our digital x-ray machine will indicate these abnormalities in a snap:
Furthermore, if a root or tooth is positioned poorly, digital x-rays will indicate so.
Identifying dental problems early on is key to saving you a lot of distress and cash.
We employ state-of-the-art technology in our facility to best manage your oral health. Providing high-quality care is our top priority at Spring Dental Arts.
