We are able to get a clear picture of your dental health by using digital x-ray technology. Images are saved directly to our server so we can examine the results immediately.
The digital x-rays produce a clearer and larger image than traditional x-rays, which allow the dentists to zoom and manipulate the images in many ways to aid with your diagnosis.
The best part is that digital x-rays produce significantly less radiation! They are also environmentally friendly because no harsh chemicals are required to develop the images.
