We know that early detection is the key to saving teeth. We have invested in digital X-rays so that our X-rays are as big as a computer monitor screen. As you can see in the picture, the monitor is one digital X-ray and a “normal” X-ray is being held up right next to it. With digital X-rays, we can see decay as soon as it gets started. The old X-ray is about one inch squared. The dentist is forced to try to distinguish between shades of gray.
The new digital X-rays can be manipulated like a photo program on your home computer. We can colorize, invert the black and white, magnify, and most importantly, use much LESS radiation than conventional X-ray film technology! Pretty cool, right?
