Dental X-rays are an important part of every patients’ regular dental treatment in Cosmetic Dentist Renton. They provide us a key diagnostic tool to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer.
For you, as the patient, here are a few of benefits in choosing a dentist that uses digital x-rays:
A reduction in the amount of radiation you are exposed to in the x-ray process.
No more waiting to film to be processed. Digital x-rays allow us to immediately see your teeth and jaw bones. This means that any assessment and diagnosis is virtually instant.
This also allows for color contrasting to be applied in order to see all the details within the image.
