What You Must Know About Dental Imaging
Your initial visit with our dentist will chiefly consist of establishing a diagnosis of dental issues and underlying causes. X-rays happen to be the one of quickest methods for a diagnostic. Not long ago, this required a great time investment and took more than one visit.
Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your Greenbelt dentist is an excellent way to help diagnose oral problems. Digital X-rays not only use 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays but are also much less time-consuming.
Using a small radiographic camera that is only slightly larger than a pen, we capture images of each tooth. This technology eliminates the need for developing or chemical processing of the images. Instead, they appear instantly on a computer screen as each scan is complete. By shifting the angle of the imaging wand only slightly, the dentist can capture every surface of every tooth.Read more about Digital X-ray
