Dental x-rays are the most important diagnostic tool we have. But many patients are understandably concerned about radiation exposure. At Nysa Dental, you will be pleased to know that we use only state-of-the-art digital x-rays that expose you to about 95% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Since dental problems often begin inside the teeth or beneath the gums where we can't see them, digital x-rays are invaluable. The highly-detailed images produced with digital x-rays clearly show us what's happening inside your teeth. Since the images are digital, we can share them with you on your chairside monitor so you can see exactly what we see. Understanding why treatment is necessary is much easier when you are an active participant in the decision-making process!
Taking digital x-rays is more comfortable because we don't use a bulky film that you need to clutch between your teeth. Instead, we use flat digital sensors with rounded edges that fit comfortably in your mouth. Your x-rays are stored securely on our in-house system, so they are readily available for reference or to quickly send to specialists and insurance companies. And since digital x-rays don't require any processing chemicals, there is no hazardous waste to dispose of!
