Quality dental care starts with a thorough evaluation at the patient’s first dental appointment. At Modern Dental Studio, it also means using today’s latest technology to help patients determine if there are dental issues that need to be addressed with the assistance of a professional. Dr. Shetty of East Brunswick, New Jersey, enable patients to enjoy high-tech solutions such as digital dental X-rays.
What are digital dental X-rays?
These are photographs of the teeth, bones, and surrounding tissues that can be viewed instantly on a computer screen. This technology offers a quick and comfortable experience for patients.
What are the advantages of using digital dental X-rays?
Some benefits of digital X-rays include less radiation exposure compared to traditional X-rays, the ability to enhance and enlarge images for better diagnostic capabilities, and instant sharing with other dental professionals for second opinions or referrals. They are easy to store on computers for simple and fast access and allow our doctor to zoom in and out to view potential dental issues closely. This amazing technology has changed how dental issues can be diagnosed, ensuring better dental health than ever before!
Is radiation from dental X-rays a concern?
Dr. Shetty uses digital X-rays in our East Brunswick dental office because they emit about 80% less radiation when compared to traditional X-rays. However, it is essential to note that all X-ray exams, whether digital or traditional, involve a very small amount of radiation exposure. The risk from this exposure is minimal and greatly outweighed by the benefits of early detection and treatment of dental conditions.
At Modern Dental Studio, we prioritize our patients’ comfort and well-being by utilizing advanced technology in our evaluation process. Whether you need a wisdom teeth X-ray to determine if surgical removal is necessary or need to look for signs of decay and infection, panoramic digital X-rays can help!
