Dr. Pinto Provides You With Affordable Digital Dental X-Rays
Using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our family dentist practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital Dental X ray technology in our office. Digital x ray technology uses a small electronic sensor placed in the mouth to capture an image, which can be called up instantly on a computer screen. Besides minimizing radiation exposure, digital dental x rays offer numerous advantages to dentists and patients alike. These include:
- No chemical processing and no waiting. Because there is no film to process with digital x-rays, there is no waiting for pictures to develop. There are no toxic chemicals to dispose of. Your dentist can immediately show you the pictures on a computer screen for easy viewing.
- A clearer picture. It’s possible to get more information from digital x-rays because they are sharper and can be enhanced in a number of ways. A digital dental xray allows Dr. Pinto to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow her to take a closer look at the teeth and surrounding structures with improved accuracy during your dentist appointment. It is even possible to compare current radiographs to previous x-rays, making even the smallest changes in your tooth structure easier to detect.
- Easy sharing and storage. Digital x-rays provide a better visual aide for you, the patient, to understand your diagnosis and treatment options. They can be e-mailed to different locations; they are also far less likely to be misplaced.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
