Get An Accurate Diagnosis Quickly And Safely With Digital X-Rays
In recent years, Methuen Family Dentistry in Methuen has witnessed remarkable technological advancements that have transformed how oral health is diagnosed and treated. One such innovation is digital X-rays, a cutting-edge technique that offers many benefits compared to traditional film-based radiography.
What are digital X-Rays?
Digital X-rays, or digital radiographs, are images of the teeth and surrounding oral structures captured using an electronic sensor and displayed on a computer screen. Unlike conventional X-ray films, digital X-rays rely on sensors to convert X-ray radiation into digital signals, which are then processed by specialized software to produce high-resolution images.
How do digital X-Rays work?
A small sensor is placed inside your mouth, capturing images of your teeth and bones. The digital sensor is sensitive, requiring significantly less radiation exposure than traditional film-based X-rays. The captured images are instantaneously transmitted to a computer, where our dental professionals can view, enhance, and manipulate them.
What are the benefits of digital X-Rays?
- Reduced Radiation Exposure: Digital X-rays significantly minimize radiation exposure by up to 80% compared to conventional radiography. This ensures the safety of both patients and staff.
- Enhanced Diagnostics: Digital X-rays provide highly detailed images to detect oral health issues. We can zoom in, adjust contrast, and analyze the images to identify early signs of tooth decay, periodontal diseases, or abnormalities.
- Immediate Results: With digital X-rays, there is no need for time-consuming film development. The images appear instantly on the computer screen, enabling us to diagnose and discuss your treatment, saving valuable time.
- Environmentally Friendly: Digital X-rays eliminate the need for chemical processing and the disposal of hazardous materials associated with traditional film-based radiography.
- Patient Education and Engagement: Digital X-rays allow us to visually explain oral health conditions in real time. The clear and enlarged images help you better understand treatment plans, fostering an informed decision-making process and improving dental health.
