This type of radiograph (x-ray) creates a close up of a single tooth; this enables the dentist to see cavities not easily visible to the naked eye.
This produces an image of both upper and lower teeth as well as the jaw, all in the one scan. This is very useful in more complex cases to determine a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
Digital radiation allows us to acquire high quality x-rays with 50 – 90% less radiation than traditional x-ray equipment. Hence, reducing the amount of radiation exposure and creating a safer environment for our patients.
Not only is this system beneficial to your health, but it is also environmentally friendly. Unlike traditional x-rays, digital x-rays do not require hazardous developing solutions or lead covered films, which end up polluting the environment. We are proud to eliminate a major source of environmental waste in the dental office; the lead from the film packets. We are constantly striving to reduce our footprint and optimise our patient care.
