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 the team at Sterling Dental 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. The doctors and staff can immediately pull up the digital x-rays on a computer screen to review the results. No wait necessary! We can also share the images with you so you can see what we are explaining about your oral condition.
