The use of this equipment is important because digital x-rays not only expose our patients and staff to 90% less radiation than typical x-rays, they are also more sensitive then traditional dental x-rays.
Digital x-rays allow Drs. Linda and Mazin Kizy, as well as the rest of the team at Sterling Dental in Sterling Heights, to clearly see the entire tooth and root structure along with the surrounding bone and tissue.
Digital x-rays give us the opportunity to detect and diagnose issues before they are visible to the naked eye, and before they can cause significant damage and pain.
More about how Digital X-Rays work
To obtain a digital x-ray, a small sensor that is connected to a computer is placed in the mouth. A beam is sent through your teeth to the sensor, which records the image. A beam is then sent through your teeth to the sensor that records the images. The doctors and staff can immediately pull up the digital x-rays on a computer screen to review the results. No more waiting for x-rays to be developed. We can also share the images with you so you can see what we are explaining about your oral condition.
