X-rays are a truly vital part of the dental care process, showing us important areas of your mouth that are completely inaccessible to the naked eye and helping us plan treatment with more preciseness and confidence than ever before. However, traditional film X-rays came with several pitfalls. Today, our Midtown dental team is happy to offer an alternative – digital X-rays. This technology makes the diagnosis of your dental problems that much smoother and simpler, allowing Dr. Silver to provide quality, personalized care that leaves you smiling.
Digital X-rays have several benefits when compared with their traditional counterparts. They rely on a significantly smaller amount of radiation – up to 90% less, in fact, which makes them much safer for our patients. There are also no more darkrooms and no more hazardous chemicals, which is good news for the environment. Instead, we can capture and transfer detailed images of your mouth to our computer system in a matter of seconds; our team members can even rotate and color-code them to improve patient understanding. The X-rays can be transferred and reproduced digitally too, making them more environmentally friendly. Contact NY Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry today if you’d like to learn more!
