Digital Xrays

Digital xray technology allows our dentists to diagnose and treat problems not yet visible to the naked eye, including early tooth decay, gum disease, abscesses and abnormal growths. This diagnostic tool has prevented untold suffering and saved countless teeth. Now, state-of-the-art digital technology in Calderwood Dental Practice is even safer and more beneficial.

How It Works

A small electronic sensor placed in the mouth to capture an image, which can be called up instantly on a computer screen. Digital xrays offer a host of advantages over traditional xray films, most importantly, they cut the amount of radiation exposure to the dental patient by as much as 90%. While faster xray films have been developed over the years that require less exposure, making that difference less dramatic, a digital xray still offers the lowest radiation dose possible.

A Clearer Picture

It's possible to get more information from digital xrays because they are sharper and can be enhanced in a number of ways. The contrast can be increased or decreased, and areas of concern can be magnified. It's even possible to compare them on-screen to your previous xrays, making even the minutest changes to your tooth structure easier to detect.

The image can be called up instantly on a computer screen.
