Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital x-rays are the standard in modern dentistry. Dr. Caves has incorporated the latest technology into his office to make x-rays safer, faster and more comfortable for each patient.
X-rays are a focused beam of x-ray particles passed through bone which produce an image on special film, showing the structure through which it passed. Most people are familiar with the black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and disease, our digital dental x-rays capture images that have stunning detail and clarity. This allows us to precisely detect infection or pathology that requires attention.
Our state-of-the-art digital radiography exposes the patient to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. We can also capture panoramic x-rays where we can see all of your teeth at the same time.
Using this technology, we are able to take an x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. Your digital x-rays will be stored in your digital dental file. This allows us to save space and be more environmentally friendly. Digital dental x-rays can also be shared easily with other specialists and doctors when needed.
