In general dentistry, nothing is more important than thorough, accurate images of your teeth and mouth. The knowledge that these pictures provide is crucial to evaluating your dental condition and creating a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals.
For years, dentists relied on conventional X-ray film imaging to acquire these images. However, the dentists at Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics are now using digital radiography instead.
This exciting imaging technology allows our dentists to take sharp, clear photos of your teeth in less time than traditional X-rays. And the better the images we take of your teeth, the easier it will be to diagnose you.
If you live in the Boston area of Massachusetts and you’re looking for an experienced dentist with a commitment to providing patients with the highest standards of care, please call Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics today at 781-843-7905.
What Is Digital Radiography?
Digital radiography uses digital sensors instead of film. This presents a dentist and his patients with a number of significant advantages:
- Time: Digital radiography is quicker than traditional X-ray imaging. There’s no chemical processing of images involved. Instead, the pictures are uploaded quickly and automatically to a computer.
- Image quality: The images taken by digital radiography are clearer and more detailed than conventional X-ray images. Our general dentists can control the exposure and brightness of each image, which gives us excellent detail of a specific area of your mouth.
- Less radiation: Traditional X-ray imaging is safe, but with digital radiography we can reduce your exposure to radiation by up to 90%.
- Convenience: Because digital radiography provides images that are immediately saved to a computer, sharing and storing these pictures is immediate. Our dentists have computer monitors next to our dental chairs; we can show you exactly what we’re looking at. Your images will always be right at our fingertips for easy reference.
Our dentists have always been committed to the newest technologies and developments in the field. With digital dental X-rays, we will be able to continue providing you with the thorough work you’ve come to expect from Pinnacle Dental Aesthetics.
