Digital Dental X-Rays at Morton Grove Dentistry Prove IL Patients with a More Comprehensive Exam
While dental x-rays have been around for decades, the relatively recent employment of the digital dental x-ray has made periodontal care all the more concise and comprehensive for practitioners, and so much more safe, convenient and enlightening for their patients. Because digital x-rays are becoming so prominent within the dental industry, Dr. Rashmika Patel of Morton Grove Dentistry in Illinois wants patients to learn more about what benefits they provide when compared to the standard x-ray.
Like conventional film x-rays, digital X-ray take a picture of your oral cavity, including your jaw, teeth, gums and sinus. That’s essentially where the similarities end. After a digital capture is taken, it’s then entered into a digital imaging program. This program contains tools that allow Dr. Patel to take a more detailed look at your teeth and surrounding structures. Dr. Patel is able to enhance, zoom and colorize the scan. This not only enables her and her staff to get a greater insight into any issues, it also allows you to see what’s going on below the surface of a smile you see every day. Digital X-rays are much friendlier to the environment. They do not require film or damaging chemicals to process each scan. Additionally, the digital X-ray was designed with you, the patient, in mind. In contrast to the standard X-ray, the digital X-ray delivers 80% less radiation. That is because it is more sensitive to a smaller amount of radiation. These scans are also infinitely easier to share. They can be copied for your own viewing, as well as electronically sent to an insurance company, making the claim process move along with ease.
Today it is clear that digital X-rays are the more efficient, convenient and safer choice. Dr. Rashmika Patel D.D.S. invites you to experience the benefits of digital X-rays for yourself at Morton Grove Dentistry in Morton Grove, IL.
