Schick Digital Dental X-Ray Unit
Dr. Anshu uses digital dental X-Rays to provide even better dental care and more accurate diagnoses. The process of digitally capturing an image is much faster, safer and more comfortable for the patient.
How Digital Dental X-Rays Work
We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an X-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.
Why Digital Dental X-Rays are Better
The digital dental X-ray system is more sensitive than dental X-ray film systems, so your exposure to X-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. The large, color-enhanced images let you see what your dentist sees, so it's easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth. Your fees don't include payment for photo chemicals, film, processing or film storage. Used photo chemicals and film are not polluting the environment. Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.
Dental x-rays emit very low levels of radiation. To take your x-rays, we use digital x-rays or radiography. In digital radiography, digital sensors instead of photographic film record pictures of your teeth. Your Advanced Dental Care Center team will use the latest in digital technology when x-raying your teeth. Digital x-rays:
- • Are environmentally friendly. Environmentally harmful chemicals needed to develop film are not required.
- • Are less time-consuming for you. The results are displayed on a computer screen. There is no waiting for film to be developed.
- • Reduce your exposure to radiation. Because digital sensors are better detectors of radiation than film is, less radiation is required by digital x-rays to capture the images.
