Advanced Smiles Dental sets itself apart from other dental offices by offering digital X-rays which can offer up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays. Traditionally, dentists used X-rays that were developed in a dark room with chemicals and then viewed on a light board. The worst part of the traditional X-ray was the radiation exposure to patients. We’ve invested in a new way of looking into your mouth-a procedure that’s faster, more comfortable and incredibly precise. Now, when you come into the office for X-rays, a tiny sensor is placed in your mouth that emits up to 90% less radiation than a traditional X-ray. This creates a detailed image viewable on a chairside monitor that the doctor and patient can view together. Digital X-rays offer unparalleled benefits over traditional X-rays; they’re convenient, great for the environment and can be transferred accurately. Best of all, they are safer for our patients. If you have questions about digital X-rays, call our office today. We’ll do all we can to help.
