Dr. Neal is a leader in utilizing the latest technology and has been using Schick Digital Dental x-rays since September 2000.
Despite concerns, digital dental X-rays are an extremely safe and important part of a thorough dental evaluation. By viewing the inside of your teeth and accompanying oral structures, we can more effectively care for your smile. Concerns over radiation exposure associated with digital dental X-rays have no solid basis. In fact, the high-speed Schick digital dental X-ray we use minimizes ionizing radiation that is passed along to the patient. The amount of radiation a patient is exposed to is less than that the exposure the natural atmosphere exposes a person to over about one week. Digital Denal x-raus use about 1 tenth as much radiation as the traditional high speed dental film.
Schick digital x-ray sensors
The Schick dental x-ray sensor is about the same size ad standard denal film It has a cord that transmets the imate instantly to a computer screen where the doctor can manipulate it and enhance i. The image is enlarged up to 25 times so we can show it to you for easy viewing understanding of the situation.
Radiograph technicians step out of the room while digital dental X-rays are being taken because they see many patients and take many X-rays. Compounded, the exposure could compromise their health over the course of their dental career.
Dental radiographs, or X-rays, provide us with valuable information because with them, we can see what's going on beneath, between, and under your teeth and gums. We can also detect problems in existing dental work, as well as receding bone and abscesses. For instance, cavities and gum disease show up as dark places on white teeth and bone images. Not only do X-rays help us diagnose dental problems and develop customized treatment plans, but they document your dental health status, establishing a baseline from which to monitor changes over time.
By using Digital dental x-rays and digital photography, we can better communicate with you the patient as well as Specialists, Dental Labs, and Dental Insurance Carriers. The result is better treatment for you!
