Do you want to stay healthy and happy with a mouth full of strong, bright teeth? The question might seem like a silly one, but the fact of the matter is that many people unconsciously answer "no" by neglecting to visit their dentists for regular and routine appointments. You need consistent examinations in order to ensure that your oral health remains good. When you develop oral health issues that must be diagnosed and fixed, you are likely to find yourself in need of some kind of imaging service. At Excellent Dental Specialists, we offer digital radiographs as well as a number of other methods that help us attain the clear images we need without exposing you to too much radiation.
What are digital radiographs?Digital radiography is perhaps one of the most innovative and important recent developments in the dental profession. Digital radiographs are digital images of your teeth (for example) that offer a surprising amount of detail as well as the ability to be enhanced. Unlike x-rays that are done using old fashioned film, digital x-rays are able to be colorized, zoomed, magnified, or sharpened. These are all tools that work to help enhance the images in question, but without altering the actual image data. That means that we can enhance your digital x-rays without worrying about actually altering the information that it provides.
Why are digital radiographs useful?When you come in for a visit with us, you are trying to maintain good oral health. Should we find an issue throughout the course of your visit, then you are probably going to want to have that diagnosed as quickly and accurately as possible so that we can begin working on a personalized treatment plan to help fix the situation, right? This is where digital radiographs come in! Much like traditional x-rays, digital x-rays work to take images of your teeth that help us better understand exactly what is going on with them. Even better, digital radiography can do all of this at a fraction of the radiation that normal x-rays expose you to. This is particularly important if you are going to have to have a number of imaging services done, as you will want to reduce the amount of radiation you expose your body to, to a minimum.
Do I need digital radiography in my dental care?Even after the above information, many individuals will wonder if they really need a dentist who uses digital radiography. At Excellent Dental Specialists, we think that you deserve access to a dentist who is willing to use every tool available to help keep your teeth as healthy as possible. That's one of the reasons why we're so proud to offer digital radiography as one of our services.
