At Innovative Family Dentistry we use the most advanced dental technology possible--it is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office. This means:
- All x-rays are taken at the dental chair. We are able to take more diagnostic x-rays utilizing computer manipulation to get a more precise look at your teeth. It also means up to 90% reduction in radiation to you, the patient from traditional dental x-rays.
- Our panoramic x-ray (the x-ray machine that goes around your head and takes one large x-ray of your entire jaw) is also digital, and has the same benefit of less radiation and a more precise look at your teeth for better diagnosis of any dental problems.
- At Innovative Family Dentistry we have invested in a state of the art digital 3D CT scanning machine that provides 3 dimensional images. This again gives us the benefit of less radiation, but also gives us information that is impossible to get any other way. The digital 3D CT scan is a huge advantage for our patients particularly in areas of implant placement, emergency care, and root canal treatment.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable and as safe as possible. At your next appointment, we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about digital x-rays.
